I wanted my birthday brunch full of color and flavor just like me.
Since I usually enjoy a light herbal or fruit tea in the afternoon, I thought a decadent, buttery confection would be the perfect accompaniment.
A cake can turn out in so many flavors and tastes but basically is made of the same ingredients. The same stands true for humanity. We come in different colors and flavors, but are all created with the same things and made to love.
The idea of chocolate covered strawberries danced around in my head. I thought how could I take this classic aphrodisiac and make it even more sensual yet scrumptious. I decided to make a rich chocolate cake and fill it with a bright, tangy and sweet creamy strawberry filling.
I know it to be a very mild flavored fruit that needs some background singers to make to really sing. I decided that these permissions would shine with sugar and spice.
These bars are a personal favorite of mine because the eggnog flavor is intensified with nutmeg and rum.
