Sinfully Delicious

What happened when I combine all my favorite sweet treats together? 

I got this - a sinfully delicious dessert!

Super fudgy brownies with chocolate chip orange crunch cookies topped with sliced almonds and white chocolate chips. 

My oh my, they didn’t come up with the old saying “live to eat” for no reason. I first caught the glimpse of this at Rima’s blog. I was smitten at the very first sight.

What put me off was the almost equal layer of choc chips and the brownies. Don’t get me wrong, I love both, but I would prefer my brownies to take a dominant stand as compared to the cookies. Also, when it comes to the cookies, I would prefer mine to have the tangy citrus flavor. 

The fudgier the brownies, the better it taste – that’s the cardinal rule of a perfect brownie according to MrN. Easy peasy, google it, and the recipe from Martha Stewart will appear. The next biggest task is to find the perfect chocolate chip cookies recipe.

I recalled having bookmarked a page in the NYTimes on a recipe by the famous French chocolatier, Jacques Torres. I followed the recipe to the T. The only minor thing added was, the zest of an orange. Yes you heard it right, the zest of ONE orange. Remember I mentioned earlier that I like my cookies to have a citrusy flavor? Hehehe…

Assembly time. As I said earlier on, I like my brownie to be at the centre stage, not as equal layer as the cookie? Well, the idea of moulding the cookie dough onto the baking sheet and subsequently pour the brownie batter onto it came spontaneously. Me and my not so genius invention! 

To make the existing ensemble more sinful, I decided to top the batter with almonds and white choc chips. Wait, I got a confession to make, the white choc chips are accidental – it will be expiring end of march. Such a total waste to throw it away. So, instead I ‘dumped’ it onto the brownies. Hehehehe…

The end result – aaahhhhhhhhh….total bliss! I think the old saying of “Live to eat” speaks well about this sinfully delicious dessert.
