Popcorn Brownies

You ever have one of those weeks when you realise you’re absolutely exhausted?  That’s been me this weekend – everything just has all come at once!  School stress, long working hours, wedding planning (the invitations are finally out), exercise (I’ve gotten back into attending classes in the gym as well as doing a charity 5k) and trying to get ahead on dinner.  I’ve just reached the point where I’m totally exhausted!

So when I decided to bake, I wanted something quick and easy that I could throw into the oven while working on dinner.  Brownies are always an obvious choice – quick to throw together and easy to bake.  But since I had found some Chips Ahoy popcorn cookies, I threw together a popcorn brownie, just to see if the salty and sweet combination would work.  I was happy that it actually went together fairly well!
