One of the moms from my kids’ baseball team got stung by a wasp. Unfortunately, she had a bad reaction very late in the evening. Her husband (an infectious disease specialist) was out of the country on business, so she ended up at a “doc-in-the-box” walk-in clinic to treat what had turned into an infected sting. The over-achieving wasp stung her not once, but twice. Ouch.
Even more unfortunate was that the medical personnel prescribed her medication in the same family as a pharmaceutical she told them she is allergic to. She ended up sick (and thankfully nothing worse!) from both the bee stings and the medication.
Enter the get well brownie. I used a simple milk chocolate brownie box mix, with frosting I made by melting some unsalted butter and milk chocolate chips in the microwave. I then decorated it with sparkle gel frosting with a No Doc in the Box sign, and a wasp with a trail around the sign. Because chocolate is the best Rx for any ailment.
Feel better soon, Meredith!
