an ultra talented baker, introduced 16 year old Angelyn, of Everyday
Desserts. Angelyn bakes some seriously decadent cookies, brownies and
treats that are highly addictive and almost always contain chocolate in some
form or another. I can’t wait to try a TON of her recipes.
As a guest blogger for Paula, Angelyn’s post was an awesome Deep Dish Milky
Way Cookie that she’d baked up in a “Whoopie pie pan”. These cookies looked
so good that I decided right then and there that I wanted to give them a try.
I immediately rang my husband and asked him would he pret-ty, pret-ty
please pick me up some “Milky Ways”, if I promised to bake him something
pret-ty special and delicious. What I didn’t know, is that Milky Way chocolate
bars aren’t sold in Canada, and so I was presented with a package of Snickers
chocolate bars and a package of Mars chocolate bars instead. I could have my
pick. No problem ~ either would work perfectly. I decided to go with the
Snickers because the thought of peanuts AND caramel AND cookie dough
sounded like something I’d dreamed of.
Unfortunately this brought me to my next problem, which was that I didn’t
have a whoopie pie pan. I’m smart enough to know, no amount of pret-ty
pleasing was going to get me a whoopie pan, and since I’d rather stay home
than go out, I decided to be resourceful, and pulled out my 9″x9″ pan and
made bars instead.
Yum. Yum. Yum.
Look, you can see the Snickers chocolate bar right there
surrounded by all that yummy cookie dough.
I made some tea and we ate some bars and it was … JOY-ful.
Served warm, these are rich, chewy and delicious.
In fact, I like them best, served warm, it brings out the chewiness.
Even though it may look like it, we didn’t actually eat outside. Unfortunately,
it’ll be at least a month before spring arrives, though it does feel like it’s close
by at times. The sun wasn’t coming in the window when I tried to take these
pictures so I decided to take the party outside. The good news, is that as of
yesterday, I now have a whoopie pan and can’t wait to make these bars
