Today’s guest post comes from Carrie of Bakeaholic Mama. She’s such a sweetheart, and a very busy mama with three kids!

Hi Guys! I am excited to be guest posting for Rachel as she takes some much needed time to juggle two busy kids! For those of you who do not know me, I am Carrie from Bakeaholic Mama. I am a stay-at-home mom of three adorable crazy kids, and I have a major addiction to butter and sugar. We all have our addictions, Rachel, for instance, has a problem with popcorn. I, on the other hand, have a real problem with brownies.

All of you moms out there know what it’s like to try and lose those extra pounds and the kangaroo pouch after the babies are born. I find myself counting calories, working out.. and the entire time I am dreaming of things filled with ooey gooey chocolate, slathered in caramel.

It’s a problem. What does a mom who loves brownies but wants to spend the summer in a bikini do?

My solution? Make the brownies!

But only a small batch! If you are like me, things with caramel and chocolate do not stand a chance. You have issues with self control. That big 9×13 pan of fudgy goodness is going to be eaten. It just happens before you know it. 

However, a smaller batch of brownies made in a mini muffin pan will ensure you only have a bite or two. Right? Well, maybe.

More brownie recipes!
