This April Fool's Day dessert may have you doing a double take. I can't help but giggle when I look at it. This dessert prank is not only sneaky its delicious! Vanilla bean cheesecake "mashed potatoes" is layered with a brown butter cookie crumble, topped with brown butter caramel "gravy" and sprinkled with sea salt and grated dark chocolate "pepper". Why not have mashed potatoes for dessert?
These brownie bites are a decadent rendition of my favorite summer dessert S'mores. Instead of a campfire to make these minis, you will just need your oven (and maybe a kitchen torch). A graham cracker crust is layered with extra dark chocolate brownies and are stuffed with a molten milk chocolate center and to make them even better they are topped with toasted marshmallow fluff.
Store bought mini cruller donuts are used as the base of this easy no-bake strawberry shortcake. Slice some berries and whipped up a light sweetened mascarpone and dessert is ready in 5 minutes. Like the Barefoot Contessa taught us if you don’t have homemade “store bought is fine”.
