My fiance is a vanilla man, all the way. Vanilla cakes, vanilla cupcakes, vanilla cookies – his choice over chocolate, any day. He even prefers white chocolate – ya, know – Milky Bar? Except when it comes to brownies – for brownies he will make an exception to the vanilla rule.
So after seeing @megpascoe tweeting about chocolate brownie cupcakes with honeycomb and chocolate icing, I knew that this was something I had to get him to try, so this morning we headed out to Market on Main and made a beeline for The Counter’s stall.
A delicious spread of homemade goodies on offer from the aspiring deli-owner and her partner-in-crime – gourmet sammiches, sinful chocolate chip cookies, an assortment of indulgent marshmallows, preserves and and and….of course….chocolate brownie cupcakes with chocolate icing and honeycomb. And huge, gorgeous, chunky chocolate brownies.
I wolfed down my cupcake with a cappuccino – the perfect Sunday breakfast, if you ask me. And it was insanely delicious – the honeycomb? Reminded me of a Crunchie bar. You know, the one that goes ‘KKKRRRRR’ in your mouth? That. And my fiance made sex noises while he was eating his, so I assume that he enjoyed it as well. 😉
Though we had to rush off to fetch The Kid from his grandparents, we made plans to come back to Market on Main another day, to have a look and taste wares from some of the other stalls – we barely even looked around – we went there knowing exactly what we wanted!
