I like simple. So when I got the most recent Betty Crocker e-mail and saw their Red, White and Blue Candy-Topped Brownies, I knew I'd found my Fourth of July dessert. It was cute, it was chocolate and it was easy.
Why is nothing ever easy?
How could they be hard, you ask?
Well, after looking at Walmart, Walgreens, and Rite Aid it became apparent that they had not made red, white, and blue m&ms this year. Yes, my "easy" recipe had me running in and out of stores to find the second of two little ingredients - and it was not to be found.
How does this always happen to me?
