So what do you do when not only do you have an allergy to peanuts but you also stupidly gave up chocolate for Lent? yes that’s right…silly me.
My answer to this problem…bake something that I most definately cannot eat regardless of how much I would like to, there, problem solved!
These Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Brownies are not for the feint of heart. The first layer is a gooey, dense, dark chocolate brownie. Just as the brownie was nearly cooked I added a layer of thinly sliced Snickers bar and a generous helping of Salted Roasted Peanuts and popped it back into the oven. While the brownies were cooking to perfection I mixed up milk chocolate, Rice Krispies and a whole jar of crunchy peanut butter into one big sticky beautiful mess! This was poured over the brownies and Voila…
Judging by how quickly these disappeared (people you know who you are!) these are going to become a firm favourite at Rosy Cheeks one day!
Saturday was RosyCheeks Bakery’s first ever Christmas Fair! It seemed only right to include some special limited edition Christmas flavours that are only brought out at this time of year these were:
Christmas Cupcakes – A cupcake filled with Christmas Spices such as warming cinnamon and all spice, as well as sticky raisins, sultanas and dried apricots, topped with a vanilla brandy buttercream and for that extra special festive touch – edible holly berries.
Gingerbread & Caramel Cupcakes – A vanilla and ginger sponge decorated with vanilla buttercream, mini gingerbread men and a swirl of rich toffee caramel sauce.
Simply Snowflake – For the purists! A light moist vanilla sponge topped with a vanilla buttercream and finished with a sparkling edible snowflake.
Chocolate Twinkle Cupcakes – A moist chocolate sponge topped with a gooey chocolate custard and a swirl of chocolate buttercream sprinkled with edible gold stars for that final lavish touch!
As well as the limited edition cupcakes I also served up a choice of double stuffed Oreo Brownies and Chocolate Gooey Brownies. Doggy treats were also on offer as there should always be a choice for the best friend in our families!
If you didnt get chance to come and taste any of the delicious treats on offer – don’t worry!
