Guinness® Brownies with Baileys® Frosting

Dear Community,

I know this may seem a little forward, but I just have to say…

I love you.

You are more than just a pretty face.

You’re über smart.

Maybe even too smart for some.


How genius are those paintball episodes?

Or the Inspector Spacetime bits?

Plus, you’re funny.

And not just ha-ha funny.

Like belly-clenching-laughing-so-hard-that-you-almost-snort-and-you-can’t-stop-laughing-so-everyone-starts-looking-at-you-weird funny. 

Troy meeting LeVar Burton? 

Gold. Pure gold

I really hope the TV Gods let you stick around for at least one more season.



P.S. I made you some awesome brownies.

These are not really meant for the kiddies.

You could always bake them this or this.

Go on. Make them. You’ll thank me later.
