Have you ever sampled a dessert and immediately declared your love? Or, has said declaration seemed a pale comparison to your true feelings, leading you to propose to either the dessert itself or its baker?
No? You, my friend, are missing out.
My gooey butter cake recipe led to my friend David proposing marriage. I'm not entirely sure he was kidding. But I get it. That is one amazing dessert.
My friend Amanda hosted Dinner Club a couple of months ago and served us a dessert resembling nirvana. I took one bite and I was hooked. I needed this dessert to be a permanent part of my life, thus the proposal.
Thanks to Rachel for capturing the moment and making me look like I'm 12 years old
I've made the dessert a couple of times since, including this past weekend while a good friend visited. Of course, she proposed to me. Somehow I think her husband would have a problem with that. But seriously, this dessert is beyond words.
It's a layer of chocolate chip cookie dough, topped by a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, then topped with brownie mix, all baked in a muffin tin. It is decadent, sinfully delicious, and in no way healthy.
Served fresh from the oven? I'm drooling at the thought.
I want more. I need more.
I will say this, however. It needs a better name than Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Brownie. First, it neglects to mention the cookie dough bottom. Second, this dessert is insane and that name is boring. Third, if it's going to inspire proposals, the name should alert the eater so as to make an informed decision.
We don't want people proposing willy-nilly here.
What would you call this dessert? How soon will you be making it?
