it is my sisters fault that i am obsessed with trader joes

the very first thing we do after picking me up from the airport is to shop at trader joes

i love everything about that store

this is where she introduced me to sea salted brownie bites - can you say amazing!

of course, that is where the inspiration for this recipe came from - you can thank my sister

after one bite you will want to marry her for inspiring this recipe
