Extreme Brownies: Cookie Dough Cheesecake Brownie Pastry Pockets

Have you seen this new trend in which describing something as “to die for” is no longer good enough? I keep seeing these recipes named “Better Than Sex Cake, Sex in a Pan, etc…” Really? I’m pretty sure sex outside of a pan is still better.

But I get it. It’s a quick hook to get you to look a little closer. And if there’s one recipe that I’m going to describe that way, it’s definitely this one. Now that we’ve established that, do lean in close and take a look at this sexified brownie creation.  Inside that pastry pocket is a cookie dough cheesecake brownie bar — yes, It’s a mouthful. This mouthful is an extreme brownie with a sweet and salty combination that finishes with a dusting of confectioner’s sugar and some chocolate and caramel drizzle — how’s that for a happy ending?

So in playing along with the current sex and food trend, I give you the Brownie Sex Maker. This will make you and the person you share with it want to do anything…for reals.

Sex on a Plate: The Event


*start shameless self promotion*

For the past few months, I’ve been working with the sexy lady pictured above (Jennifer Iannolo) on what will be a fabulous Valentine’s extravaganza. We want you all there. You by yourself. You with your boyfriend/girlfriend. You with your friends. You with your love triangle. Just come.

And if that picture isn’t enough to convince you…I will be there too!

DETAILS: Step inside the head of food & sensuality maven Jennifer Iannolo, host of Food Philosophy and co-creator of the Culinary Media Network, as she presents a selection of flavors, tastes and textures designed to evoke your senses. Instead of the rote table-for-two scenario, her Valentine’s Day cocktail party in the Penthouse Solarium of the Roger Smith Hotel will be a sultry evening of tastes with the kinds of aromas, textures and flavors that will make your mouth water — and prime you for what she hopes is a most sensual evening.

This event is for singles, doubles, threesomes, or whatever tickles your fancy.
