Chocolate by 10 a.m. Guaranteed.
Holy Mama! has moved to holymama.org, please update your links and feeds.  Thank you!

I'm a little embarrassed. It all started with Busymom. She asked about how to make brownies that tasted like some gourmet ones she was hooked on. And like, half the comments she received were from people singing the praises of Ghirardelli brownies from a box. Hmm.

So I looked for these. At TWO stores. And? Not in my town. Seriously. The BEST brownies, per Busymom's readers, were not for sale locally. She so kindly pointed me to Amazon. And guess what?! (Here's where I get embarrassed) When I ordered them, I didn't have a 'choose your shipping preference' step of the check- out process. I wondered why not at the time. But just now, five boxes of brownies were delivered to my doorstep. Via Federal Express. Doesn't that seem a little over the top? Usually if it's FedEx, it's business stuff for Mike and important. Tonight it was important and for me, and even better. Ghirardelli chocolate. I have some brownies to make, y'all!

See now, I have a slight problem with brownies in my house. The batter never seems to make it to the pan...

Oh my gosh, you're going to LOOOOOOOOVE those. When I'm feeling particularly naughty & am at Costco, I'll pick up one of their OMGBROWNIESFOREVER boxes that make like 4857345630847389 brownies. It's like you died & went to chocolate heaven.

I got these last weekend for the first time because we were having company. I had no idea Ghirardelli made brownies in a box! They are so awesome, I didn't want to share them with our guest. I considered shoving out a bowl of fruit for desert instead. ;-)

Brownies via FedEx. Pure genius.

you made the right choice. those brownies are the best. love them. our local market sells them, but they are gone really fast. I usually grab a box everytime I go shopping, otherwise it might not be there next time.

Did you check Sam's Club? That's where I've gotten them before. Just an idea : )

Do they come in Sugar Free? I'm diabetic and I LOVE chocolate.

You had brownies FedEx'd to your home! Is there nothing you won't admit to?!

I must admit, I had NO idea that you could order food from Amazon. Didn't they start out as an online bookstore?

I'm not a chocolate fan myself, but if they're really that good, I may have to pick some up for my hubby. When I bake chocolate for him he knows I reeeaaallly love him since I won't eat it myself.

Enjoy your brownies!

I wouldn't be embarrassed at all. It makes a great excuse to write this post!

I'm glad you're with me, by the way on Clooney Mulroney on AI!:)

I've never had those...I love chocolate (my husband doesn't like chocolate) so i don't get it very often..or I'd eat it all

You do know that the scientific name for Chocolate is Theos Cacao which means food of the gods. Now we have scientific proof that chocolate is divine, heavenly and a gift from God. MMMMMMM

LOL! Fed Ex! But those Ghiradelli brownies are the BEST -- I am sure it will be worth it once you taste them. :-)

Thanks for stopping by my site today!

Ooh, I might have to add this to my food diary. How many calories do I have to log for DREAMING about eating Ghirardelli brownies? How many Weight Watcher points would that be?

Well, you know, the shoes are on the other feet on the "changing the toilet paper roll" issue at the Muley house. It seems to be viewed as some sort of chore only enabled by the male gene.
