Cinnamon spiced ganache stuffed inside a smashed Snickerdoodle bar, then dipped in chocolate! Confused? Stick with me here. They taste like a cake pop but with brownies instead of cake. And not brownies, snickerdoodle bars. Just scroll down to the recipe already.
A few weeks ago, Eric randomly says to me, “Karen, you’re almost 30 years old. You’re the same age as U2’s Joshua Tree Album. Just a few months younger.” He ponders for a moment. “I knew there was a reason I liked you.”
We celebrated our 9th anniversary yesterday. I’m really glad we have U2 to keep our marriage in perspective. I mean, how else would we keep the love alive?
We went to see U2 live last week. I always think Eric is the biggest U2 nerd, until I go to a U2 concert. After you meet over a dozen people standing in line who have seen the band in concert over 50 times (not kidding) and can name their first concert from the 80s, you realize that your husband’s obsession is extremely tame. Hashtag blessed.
The concert was super fun though. It’s a 30 year anniversary tour for The Joshua Tree album, which is all of their best stuff. (Name the first U2 song you can think of. I bet it’s from Joshua Tree.)
Okay, so these trifles need some explaining. They sound complicated but I swear they’re not. You make these Snickerdoodle Blondies. Cut them into squares. Take a square and SMASH. Then wrap it around a ball of frozen ganache. Then dip it in chocolate. See that’s not so bad right??
(These are also good with white chocolate!)
I got this idea from Hayley over at Domestic Rebel and Jocelyn at Inside BruCrew Life. They both have recipes for brownie bites/bombs that use the idea of wrapping a baked brownie around a something (Rolo, cookie dough, etc.) and then dipping in chocolate. I’ve had them before, they are amazing! My sister Laura and I were talking about them once and she suggested I try using these Chewy Brown Sugar Snickerdoodle Blondies and stuffing it with cinnamon ganache. Like to get a Mexican hot chocolate thing going on.
These are delicious room temperature, but being a warm-cookie-person at heart, I had to throw one in the microwave, just to see.
Oh yeah. Melty chocolate wins every time!
These are a fun make-ahead treat you could make for your Memorial Day parties this weekend!
