Cookies and Cream Cake

I have a problem with this cake.

A serious problem.

A problem on par with my Cheeto addiction.

You would think that a simple, unassuming cake such as this would not cause much trouble. It’s got a lot of the same basic ingredients you’d find in any other cake—flour, eggs, sugar, etc. Same sort of stuff that gets mixed into countless confections all over the world, day in and day out. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Except for the Hershey’s Cookies n’ Crème bars, that is.

And the sweetened condensed milk.

And the chocolate chips.

Yes, that’s when it becomes an entirely different issue, my friends. You see, I had never thought of melting those yummy candy bars and mixing them up into a cake and simply pouring sweetened condensed milk on top of it. By that point, it would be a crime not to sprinkle the top with semisweet chocolate chips. All of them together creates such an amazing pile of sweet, gooey deliciousness that you can’t even wait to take blog photos using a proper plate.

Spring Break Adventures, Part 2

Are we ready for part two of spring break adventures? I’ve got to warn you, it’s going to be a very long, very food geeky post. But if you’re reading food blogs to begin with, I think we’re on the same page as far as the food geek business goes. And believe you me, this post has it in spades.

As I had hinted in my previous post, the second part of my spring break mini vacation most definitely involves food. Even more so, in fact, than my single-minded lingonberry focus towards Ikea. This outing speaks to so many levels of my food-loving soul that it’s borderline unbelievable.
The highlight of my spring break was the beautiful, the yummy, the packed-to-the-gills-with-amazingness H-Mart.
