Monday Night Martha: Dr Pepper Brownies
At the Dr Pepper Museum in Waco, Texas (yes, that Waco), you can purchase Dr Pepper marinades and sauces. And the soda jerks at the vintage fountain there serve Dr Pepper floats. On cold days you can try a mug of steaming Dr Pepper served with a lemon wedge.
You might be wondering how do we know so much about Dr Pepper? It's certainly NOT because we've made the pilgrimage to the Dr Pepper museum on three separate occasions. And it's NOT because we dressed up as "Super Dr Pepper Woman" one year for Halloween, wearing a Dr Pepper flag as a cape. It's also NOT because our mother worked for Dr Pepper when we were in utero so Dr Pepper was one of the first flavors we ever tasted. We're just a font of pop culture knowledge, that is all.
In the end, the brownies tasted like a cross between chocolate cupcakes and spice cake, and not all that Dr Peppery, unfortunately. If we were to try this again, we'd use the recipe for cupcakes instead, and create a Dr Pepper frosting to go along with it.
