As today is also Make Up Your Mind Day, I have some fun and delicious ways to ring in the New Year! I took the initiative and made up this awesome menu to enjoy in style.

Pensacola, Florida drops a Pelican every year. So while I am no longer able to join the downtown crowds for the festivities ill settle for watching The Pelican Drop and fireworks at home. So our menu tonight will hopefully reflect the health, happiness, love, and prosperity, we are hopeful for in 2020.

Followed by bubbly and my take on a Loaded Brownie. Chocolate chunks and chips mixed not the super fudgy brownies. Topped with Chocolate frosting, diced pecans, Reese’s chips, Salted Carmel Drizzle, and a touch of rich Hershey’s chocolate sauce.
