The original recipe called for double stuffed Oreos, devil's food cake, and chocolate chips. I wasn't planning on veering too far away from this recipe, but the supermarket had something else in store for me. After a great many trips to the store to buy Oreos, they finally had the peanut butter kind AND they were on sale. I was elated; I had to get them. Then on my way to pick up a bag of chocolate chips I discovered a magical new product a bag of peanut butter AND chocolate chips; I had to get these too.
Back at home a great debate began over what cake mix to use. Devil's food? Red velvet? Strawberry? After a phone call and an in-person interview I went with the strawberry. I wanted a sort of chocolate covered pb&j feel to these bars.
My little odd selection of flavors.
Fresh outta the oven.
I had to blow that picture up nice and big for you kids.
In the end I cannot say I am in love with these bars. Don't get me wrong they are damn tasty, but may I say something quite bold? I think they might be better without the Oreos. Eeeeks! Don't tell Jenny!
