Only in the south: servin’ up sweets

DSC00922

During one of my recent adventures with my adorable parents, we stopped in a little nearby town and ran across a cute old-fashioned soda shop. {just in case you were wondering, if it’s a fizzy liquid, I call it a ‘coke’…also a southern thing}. There was a glorious case of treats and I was torn between the chess squares and the fudge brownies. You know I’m not going to pass up homemade southern sweets!

When I finally decided on the brownie, the lady behind the counter took an awfully long time to ‘prepare’ it and I kept thinking "it’s just a brownie….what is taking so long?” This is what she presented me with:

Only in the south is an already tooth-achingly sweet fudge brownie not complete without a huge scoop of ice cream and more hot fudge! Don’t worry, I shared! What’s your favorite sweet summer treat? Would you have gone with the chess squares? I gotta know!

  2. I'm with you--it's all Coke!

    And I would have had a hard time choosing between the two also! I LOVE chess squares, but I think if I had known I'd get ice cream AND fudge sauce, I would have gone with the brownie, too. But I'd have made someone else get the chess squares so I could try them! :)

  7. Thanks for following my blog - that's so nice of you. I think my newfound favorite dessert is blueberry dump cake. I got the recipe off of a gal whose blog I just started following. Oh, do I count as a southerner now, I've lived in KY for the longest time I've lived anywhere at one time! Since 1988. I do love the south, and yes, it's all Coke - just ask my Dad whose roots are in KY.

  8. I would have gone with the Chess Squares. Love them! And, I use the word, "soda". I suppose that is some northern influence from my youth!

  9. Utterly mouth watering! I'm a choco-holic so I'd have definitely gone brownie all the way! Was it delish?
