I have a tough time fixing desserts, since we never find it probable to demonstrate accurately how vehement we am about all of a layers and reduction and degrees of sin.
Like this winner: there’s a peanut butter cookie layer, that on a possess would be gratifying as a final dish on genocide row. But afterwards there’s a chocolate frosting layer. And afterwards a tip covering of a World’s Greatest Fudge Brownie, all crumbled adult into a disaster of chocolatey wish and need. How do we name this? Peanut Butter Cookie Chocolate Frosting Fudge Brownie Crumble bars?
As it landed, we skipped a anxiety to a chocolate frosting in a title. Think of it as a small reward that we didn’t design after a existent pretension lured we in.
