I'd just fallen asleep when this happened in my kitchen the other night.  Don't let this happen to you!

A few weeks ago when Camp Rainbow Gold had to cancel their winter retreat and rescheduled it for the Tailgate, my boyfriend and I answered the call to donate Christmas goodies for the families attending the event.  I got a little carried away and made over 100 chocolate chip cookies, so he decided to save one of the boxes of brownies he bought to enjoy at home. Unfortunately it went horribly (and hilariously) wrong. I'll share his creative recipe for holiday disaster for you to explain what happened next since I was asleep while everything went down!

How to make "Michelle Heart's Boyfriend's Broken Glass Brownies"

  • Buy your favorite brownie mix
  • Follow the directions
  • Use a pyrex glass 8x8 dish
  • Let brownies cool
  • Melt 3 cups of your favorite fudge in the oven at 175° (Spill a little inside)
  • After brownie mix fully cools, pour fudge on top
  • Put dish on the back right burner
  • Set oven to highest temperature to burn out spilled fudge
  • Start watching Empire Strikes Back
  • An hour later, your glass dish will explode completely causing you to mess your pants, scaring the hell out of the cat, and sending shards of glass and melted chocolate all over the kitchen
  • For best results, start at midnight!
