Come Party With Me: Waterpark Party — Desserts

Although we will be splashing around in bathing suits, I want to offer my friends one decadent treat at my waterpark party. A chocolatey brownie — kept cold in a cooler — is deliciously rich.

This wonderful recipe, from our friends at, is simple and straightforward. I'm not a fan of walnuts in brownies, so I'll substitute chocolate chips! To learn how to make this portable picnic dessert,

These look good. I was searching for a homemade brownie recipe about a month ago (I'd always made brownies from the box!) and most recipes I found made an 8x8 pan - with TWO (or more!) sticks of butter! ew!

I love a decadent brownie, the more chocolaty the better! Definitely substitute the chocolate chips for a richer treat.:) Everyone needs to have a spectacular brownie recipe stashed away in their file. This one looks like it would fit the bill.:) Is there a National Brownie and Blondie Day here in the US?

I have never had a cold brownie... but I'm sure it would still be good!
