Brownies + Pound Cake = FAIL

I love brownies.  I love pound cake.  And this is about how I got super ahead of myself thinking that the two could ever be friends.  Because they are not. 

Trust me and don't waste your time.


Since my super-popular post about the very delicious Brownie-Covered Oreos, I thought that the marriage of my two favorite cake-like items would be a hit. 

Unfortunately, they turned on me as a monstrosity of a weirdly textured fake dessert.


Look away.  They're hideous.

Sorry to hear that, as they look pretty darn good . . . do you think peanut butter cups would go well inside a brownie?

Bleheheh... never a fan of pound cake. However, in the picture it kinda looks like brownie covered cheesecake, and that just might be a dynomite idea. :]

I want to put a rolo candy in a brownie! Sounds quite yummy. The brownie pound cake looks like it would taste good but I will take your word for it!

Amy said...

They don't look toooooo bad.
I would probably eat like 10 of them, not 20 though.

They look good to me....but best to stick w/the 'ol Oreos, which looks fabulous! You win some, you loose some!

Ha ha...sorry...I had to laugh. I just posted a recipe fail a couple of days ago and it made me think of my experience all over again! I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who had this happen occasionally! - Karen
