Chocolate and Peanut Butter Dessert
That's what I'm sayin.' Eat your heart out, Martha. Saw this recipe in the current Martha Stewart magazine, and had to try it for my family and my colleagues at school.
Did you know that painting melted chocolate on paper muffin papers is much harder in actuality than in print? Did you also know that melted chocolate on a paintbrush is worth several changes of clothes, burned fingers, soggy paper, and messy streaks (that melt upon touch) covering the surrounding four feet of kitchen space, not including the stove? Did you know that if even one tiny drop of water from the jimmy-rigged double boiler gets into the chocolate, the chocolate will form little balls and be gross and NOT spread at all and you will have to dump it and start again? Did you know that parchment paper frosting tubes DO NOT hold up to peanut butter? In fact, it oozes out like...Well, let's just say it oozes out.
This proves that I, too, can make calorie laden desserts. No, they do not look as pretty as the pictures in the magazine. But they did turn out.
A picture is worth a thousand words. Not for me. I'm sayin' My picture is worth a 1,000 calories!
Eat that. And then lick those fingers. Mmmm.
(You, too, can enjoy this delicious, mess-full dessert by finding the recipe in the February issue of Living; or possibly on the Martha Stewart web page.)
