I really enjoy the food blogging community and I have fun participating in activities with other food bloggers so when the opportunity arose to participate in a progressive picnic I was all about it! When I found out my course was dessert I was even more excited. I had tons of ideas about what type of dessert I wanted to make but in the end when I think of a picnic dessert I think of cookies or brownies because they are easy to pack and easy to eat.
I didn’t want to make a typical cookie or brownie for the progressive picnic so I searched for something out of the ordinary and came to a decision on white chocolate brownies. These brownies are perfect for an outdoor picnic. They are so different from the regular chocolate brownie but are delicious in their own way. The brownie is thick and starts out tasting cake like but then just melts in your mouth from all the white chocolate in the batter. A smattering of chocolate chips in the brownies adds another dimension. These brownies are the perfect ending to a picnic.
