As I wandered the aisles of the grocery store the other day I was struck with the realization that I find great pleasure in having enough random stuff in my cart that the cashier wonders if I may have multiple personalities. Joy is found in the little things in life people. Confusing salespeople is one of the simple ways I stay happy. Thrilling as it was, this epiphany made me feel very old. It also reminded me of the movie Hook and the line “I’ve just had an apostrophe.”. Speaking of suddenly feeling middle-aged, babies born the year Hook came out are now old enough to purchase alcohol legally. Holy crap.
Yeah. Minty chocolatey goodness on an Oreo crust. Boom. I know. If I have multiple personalities, you’re in love with the one that brought you this. And no, you aren’t crazy. There are no peanuts in that photo of the ingredients. I had that brilliant idea about halfway thru making this.
Jeez, just look at those layers. (insert sing-song voice here) Ahhhh-maaaaaazing!! Oh, a little tip. Use an offset spatula or butter knife to spread out the hot fudge. Run your knife under hot hot water and then dry it quickly and use it to spread. It cuts thru the fudge topping way better when the metal is warm.
Simply glorious! Yum yum yum yum yum!
