Chodesh Tov! On Purim there is a minhag to eat foods with fillings, such as kreplach or stuffed cabbage (one of my favorites!). I’ve seen many reasons, but the one I liked most is because one of the themes of the day is disguise and revelation. Throughout the entire Purim story there were secrets that were hidden but were later reveled (think Esther’s identity, for one). Same goes for foods with filling… the filling is hidden but later revealed when you bite into it.
When this month’s link-up had to have a Purim theme I was just going to skip linking up. This isn’t really a recipe blog and I don’t always post about holidays- especially one-day holidays that fall out on a Sunday and you can prepare for on the day of… even a full-time working mom can handle this one without going crazy. So, I couldn’t believe it when one of my friends posted this “recipe” on Facebook. It tied in so nicely with the Purim theme I had been thinking of!
This recipe is totally up my ally. It’s easy, uses boxed brownie batter, has chocolate AND peanut butter, and can even be frozen!
