Recently, I baked a tray of brownies. I put some on a plate for work, then left a few on a smaller plate to leave at home. My husband wandered into the kitchen while I was doing this.
Husband: "The ones you put on the plate for us to keep are all edge pieces!"
Me: "Right. Is that a problem?"
Husband: "The edge pieces aren't as good. They're not as chewy."
Me: "What are talking about??? The edge pieces are the best pieces!"
Husband: "I don't think you understand chocolate."
Me: "I don't think you understand chocolate."
I know I'm not alone on preferring the edge pieces. But I also once met a woman who told me that for years, when she made brownies, she actually threw away the edge pieces because she thought they were garbage. What a terrible, terrible waste!
