Chocolate Granola Oreo No-Bake
Chocolate Granola Marshmallow Squares with Oreo Buttercream and a Fresh Strawberry
The cool days this week were so lovely that I was caught off-guard with today’s return of heat! Nuts.
Today’s temperatures reminded me of a no-bake square I made recently. This was a test-kitchen effort focused on cleaning out the odd bits and pieces in the pantry and fridge. Think of it as Leftover Night… except this is dessert.
In no time, this mix was cooling in my Homer Laughlin Square Baker … lined with parchment paper.
As soon as it was room temperature, I smoothed on a layer of Oreo Buttercream that was leftover from this Chocolate Oreo Layer Cake.
Once the buttercream was firm (couple hours in the refrigerator), I lifted it from the baker and sat it on the cutting board.
Chocolate with more chocolate disguised as granola. I’ll take that.
It was a matter of finding the right stage for capturing these sweet bits of marshmallow square fun. I struggled. I tried different table clothes, angles, dishes, …. A good snapshot finally showed up, but it took a while.
It’s a luxury I get to engage in something that I love – creating desserts that taste really yummy and don’t look too bad either.
I get to do that because I have an amazing life partner and I’m sober.
Our people are crazy supportive, too.
