Jason came home three days before his engineering Christmas party for work and told me that it was a potluck. Awesome. I requested that he try and sign us up to bring a dessert since there were so many on Pinterest that I’ve wanted to try. Thankfully, we were able to bring a dessert so I emailed him a few choices like Nutella Pretzel Brownies, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Pie, German Chocolate Cake Bars, Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie, Best Ever Buckeye Brownies, Peanut Butter Eclair Cake, and a Triple Chocolate Trifle. (Can you tell that peanut butter and chocolate are my love languages?!?)
Jason chose Picky Palate’s Gooey Cookies and Cream Double Chocolate Cake Bars and I have to say that I’m glad that he did! These were pretty easy to make and baked quickly and tasted great. They were very rich warm but weren’t too rich when they were cooled. And were just as yummy a day or two later as we enjoyed leftovers! Definitely a good option if you’re looking for a pick up dessert to take to Christmas dinner!
