Brownies Part 2, the baby shower

Here is part two to my brownie making post. This part involves the actual baby shower. Yesterday I made the brownies with the good chocolate and last night we had the taste test.
Compare the 2. The top is made with Hershey's, the bottom is made with the good stuff. It is thicker and it tastes richer. Here is the party. It went really well, but I have to say that the overall consensus was that after about 5 bites of delicious brownies, all of them tasted good. And truth be told, I think my favorite one was the Trader Joe's brand.

But here was really my favorite part of the shower, the frosting. Amy brought some fresh strawberries and I just sat and dipped them in my own little cup of frosting.

Becky L can sure throw one heck of a baby shower.

Maybe I"ll just steal your pictures and your post and pretend they're mine on my blog. I love the pictures you took! And hey, it was a very mutual collaboration.

It looks so awesome!! Wish I'd have been there. What a spread. I love the idea of the strawberries in the frosting, too. MMMMM.... We don't have a Trader Joe's out here, but you have inspired me to "look beyond" Hershey's. I can't remember if I said this on your blog or Becky's but I have never thought that much about cocoa, even though I know there's a world of differences in different kinds of chocolate. The party looks SO great. What a cool "experiment!"

Of course, dip the strawberries in the frosting! Why didn't I think of that? It was a delicious night and it was good to see you again too!
