Utopia

Remember how I told you that I am the designated baker in my family?
Well,  having family visit from out of town means lots of baking for me, and I wanted to try something new and fun. But what??
Our three family favorites are: cheesecake, chocolate chip cookies, and my famous brownies.  So I came up with a fun little treat that incorporates all three!!
Isn't it cute?

I call them Utopia Bites. That about explains them. 

I tried a few varieties. Chocolate chip cookie/brownie, brownie/cheesecake, cheesecake/cookie, and a combination of all three. You know what I decided? You really can't go wrong here.  So made a whole bunch of each kind.


They tasted great, but they looked like they needed some "dressing up".
So I whipped up a batch of my peanut butter frosting and added just a dollop to each one.



Yum! Now they tasted even better, but still they seemed to be missing something.
Color.
M&M's to the rescue!



They were a big hit!









Pin It!
