I’ve been waiting for this to be chosen for a long time! When it was my turn to pick the recipe back in March, I went back and forth between this and the Snickery Squares, which I ultimately chose. I hoped that someone would choose this one soon. I was so excited to see that Tammy of Wee Treats by Tammy chose it this week. The base was a cross between a cake and a brownie. It wasn’t as dense as a traditional brownie, but was not as fluffy as a cake. It was delicious though. I love anything with caramel, so I was excited about trying Dorie’s caramel sauce. It took longer than the recipe indicated to get to the right color, but the taste was perfect. As soon as I poured the caramel sauce over the brownie/cake layer, I couldn’t wait to try it.
I was definitely not disappointed. This was one dessert worth waiting for! I would definitely make it again because I didn’t get to have enough the first time around! It was devoured that quickly! The combination of chocolate, peanuts, and caramel was a match made in heaven. Dorie’s caramel calls for more than you need, and she gives instructions for how to use it as a caramel sauce, but I’m not going to lie- I put it in a bowl and just ate spoonfuls of it 🙂 It was so good! Thanks Tammy for choosing such a great recipe- I’m glad I finally got to make it! Head over to the Tuesdays with Dorie blog to see other caramel creations!
