In the Kitchen with Miss Piggy: Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownies

The Challenge on Project Runway All Stars this past week was to design a "flamboyant cocktail dress" for "one of the most famous fashionistas in the world." That fashionista came with a very unique figure and large ears (to be considered in hats or headpieces): Miss Piggy. Now unless you've been living under a barrel for the last 20 or 30 years, you'll know who Miss Piggy is and that she has a great sense of style. Fashion houses such as Burberry and Prada have created fabulous outfits for the divine Miss P, the fairest muppet of them all. Some of the contestants on Project Runway did her proud, but she had comments for those whose dresses didn't please her. Yes, Miss Piggy was a Guest Judge!

As many of you know, I collect celebrity, literary, mystery, and tie-in cookbooks. Of course, I went directly to my bookshelf and pulled off In the Kitchen with Miss Piggy: by Moi. This would have been a valuable book for the designers on Project Runway All Stars because besides cooking advice, there is a section on Miss Piggy's Guide to Food and Fashion. Lest you think that Miss Piggy spends all her time in the kitchen--well how could she? She's busy making movies and TV shows--Miss Piggy asked her dearest and closest celebrity friends to send recipes. When the cookbook came out in 1996, a portion of the proceeds was donated to Citymeals-on-Wheels.  The book was dedicated, "To Kermit, who has always been the hottish dish in moi's life."

In the section on Miss Piggy's Perfect Pantry #1 is Chocolate! I love her Chocolate Bar Graph.

Here's a chocolate recipe from In the Kitchen with Miss Piggy for Ben and Jerry's Superfudge Brownies with A Tip from Miss Piggy! Enjoy!
