This post is sponsored by Silk. Remember the single-serving recipe for brownie batter that I mentioned the other day? Well, here it is! And, trust me, it’s a good one. I make it ALL the time now. I love enjoying this Ooey-Gooey Brownie Batter after dinner as a way to satisfy my sweet tooth without going overboard on calories and sugar.
