Bacon Stuffed Peaches, Vietnamese Burritos, Meat Wrapped Corn on the Cob (what!!) Queso Fundido Stuffed Burgers and Meatball Wellingtons! In case you're wondering, I am not sitting here dreaming up crazy yet deliciously decadent dishes, instead I'm flipping through the cookbook of someone who did just that...then made them!! These creations are from Dan Whalen's (aka Food in My Beard) new cookbook: Stuffed - The Ultimate Comfort Food Cookbook! Whooooweeebaby this book is jam-packed with some delicious looking recipes!
When I was asked to be a part of the Stuffed Book Tour I quickly said YES!! I had to see this book and I was not disappointed! I was torn between making either the Cheesesteak Stuffed Soft Pretzel Calzones (after all I was born & raised in Philly) or the Giant Peanut Butter Cup. As you can see it was the Giant Peanut Butter Cup that I went with.
Ok my friends - THIS dessert is crazy decadent and delicious! I made it on the day of our last snowstorm, my husband and I each had a slice. We then drove out and about in the middle of a 1 foot snowfall on unplowed roads to deliver our daughter to a friends house to play in the snow. When we picked her up 5 hours later, we delivered slices of this to 3 different houses on our journey - sometimes you just have to share the love (ooooor get temptation the heck outta-your-house, lol)!
Feedback was bonkers - people LOVED this! Literally, this could be served in a restaurant as its signature dessert - its THAT good! You do NOT need a huge slice of this - it's so rich that a thin slice will do you just fine. The Peanut Butter Frosting is amazing! That combined with the brownie bottom and chocolate ganache top Mmmmm! If you like Reese's Cups - you are going to go nuts over this (no pun intended)!
This dessert would make a fantastic Valentines Day Surprise for someone you love!
I am SO making a few of these to sell as slices for our upcoming elementary school fundraiser - I already know I need to bring copies of the recipe with me...Enjoy this!!!

Colleens Notes: I also made this with boxed brownie mix just to see if you could in a pinch - and you can 🙂
