I was watching the Chew this morning and Daphne Oz made these outrageous dessert bars. They're not healthy, high in calories, sugar and salt and everything bad for you...... but they have to be delicious.
We made a Chocolate Peanut Butter, Pretzel Bar at Christmas, I posted it on my blog and it instantly became the #1 viewed recipe on the blog. They are still my favorite bars. Over 5800 views to date.
I've also talked about my admiration for Christina Tosi, an amazing, contemporary, pastry chef in New York. She is famous for her Crack Pie and Compost Cookies.
This recipe reminds me of her Compost Cookies.
I could easily create a Compost Cookie Bar from her recipe.
I also have a recipe for Cowboy Pie from a Bakery in New York, so I don't have too much guilt posting this decadent recipe. After all, it's up to you whether or not you choose to make them...... but I think I will.
I'm trying to eat healthier and lose weight, but every now and then you can indulge yourself with just a small square of this bar.
