So what's a girl to do??
Make a chocolate treat of course!
One of my favorite blogs, i am baker, posted a recipe for a Heath Brownie Dessert Pizza. Couldn't resist!
This recipe has several parts just as the Heath Bar Cake does, but it's a bit simpler.
You can find the original post and recipe here.
Start with her from-scratch brownie mix. I baked it in a 12" deep dish pizza pan. I cut a circle of parchment paper for the bottom. I love parchment paper and use it with all my cakes now.
I was trying to figure out how to manage this thin brownie without breaking it so I put a large platter on top and flipped it over. It, of course, slid out of the pizza pan. I then turned the pan over and flipped the brownie back on to the bottom of the pan to create a level surface. The parchment paper was still attached to the bottom of the brownie, which was fine.
Next step, make 1/2 recipe of the buttercream frosting. Mine was pretty thick - next time I think I'll add a bit more of the heavy cream. (Only use heavy cream - don't use whipping cream! That was a mistake I won't do again!)
After the frosting was on, I chopped up the Heath Bars. I made a bunch of sprinkles and then halved a bunch of the small bars to put on the top.
Next, make the ganache. This recipe is for a microwave version. Easy! So easy I forgot to take a picture of it! Then, add your Heath bar stuff.
I went and got a pizza box from a local pizza place, put parchment in the bottom and then added a doily.
Because it was going to be shared with my son-in-law's work peeps, I pre-cut it so it was easier to serve and then put the pieces into the box. Cutting this was a snap because it was still on the bottom of the pizza pan.
(Here's a picture of the upside down pan with parchment after all pieces were transferred to the box.)
The Heath Bar Cake from i am baker that I featured in this post was eaten in a record amount of time. We'll see if this beats it!
Delicious, yummy, addicting.... need I say more?
