I’m going to start this post off with a serious question. Has there ever been a Publix commercial that failed to tug at your heart strings? Like, it totally misses the mark and makes you think, “Well, that was a huge fail!” If so, let me know in the comments below. I can think of only one (check it here) that doesn’t quite give me all the feels. Well, Publix is somewhere behind the curtain pulling our heart strings yet again with their latest Mother’s Day commercial. Take a look then scroll down for the delicious recipe of this red velvet dessert treat… and for those of you interested in the talented actors/actresses, click here for their names.
The Recipe. The husband isn’t making brownies but he is sure heck gonna get a lot of brownie points for making this meal (with the help of his mom-in-law) for his wife. The wife eventually reveals that the little red cupcakes he makes are her mom’s recipe but spoiler alert, the recipe is on Publix’s website for anyone to find!! Kudos to Grandma, though, for tricking her daughter all these years! Still, though, the sentiment is as sweet as the semisweet chocolate morsels in those red velvet muffins. OK they’re muffins and I called them cupcakes, but with 1.5 cups of sugar, hot dern, I bet they’ll taste like cupcakes. Here is the Publix recipe I found online. Make them for your mama (or wife), won’t ya? You might even score some brownie points along the way, and if you’re a husband out there, you can always use a few saved up brownie points, right? I wouldn’t know, I’m single.
What do you think of the commercial? Does it make it into your top commercials of all time (here’s my list)?
See you tomorrow…
