Today I am sharing the recipes for the cakes I used, but the main key is the design (although the cakes were also super delicious and stayed that way for a week). I found this really fun to make. It was easier than doing fancy frosting designs.
We are taking it back to Pi Day. Here is the pie I ended up making this year for it.
You know I love cookies. And I love chocolate. So chocolate cookies should be an easy thing to please me, but they often are dry or not chocolatey enough. These cookies manage to be not too dry (if eaten warm) and super chocolatey. Plus, they are easy to make ahead and bake whenever you need one.
These were so good. Even days later. I had never thought to try chocolate cinnamon rolls before but there was a recipe with other variations that the Fudgelet saw. He wanted us to try them, so that’s what I did. I spent some time in the evening making the dough, then let it rise during bedtime things and finished it when the kids were asleep. Then I baked them for our lunch.
I had seen these cookies and read about them over and over but never got around to making them. They just seemed not super special. Just a chocolate cookie. And then I saw a video where someone used this recipe to try to mimic an Oreo cookie. That got my attention and so I decided to try these. I ended up making the dough at night after the kids went to sleep and it came together really quickly.
I titled this Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, but really we made all sorts of shapes, which is most of the fun! (Another large part of the fun is eating them, obviously.)
There is a reason for this cake…and a reason it is this shape. Can you guess?
