This one is going to be hard to top. It might be my favorite “You Won’t Believe This!” Snack to date.
I was knocked off my rocker when I tried this Brownie-Frosting Sandwich today. There’s no other name for it. Earl of Sandwich calls it “The Earl’s Brownie Creme,” but, in my book, it’s a big ol’ Brownie-Frosting Sandwich.
Here’s the basic construction: a huge, circular, rich brownie was cut in half and filled with the most delicious frosting imaginable. First, let’s discuss the brownie: This was the closest thing to home made I’ve ever seen in a Disney baked good. It looked, smelled, and tasted like it had just come out of my oven at home. The crinkly top of the brownie had a crisp texture, while the rest was moist and just slightly crumbly.
Again, tiny chocolate chunks had been worked into the batter to provide little bursts of texture and taste throughout.
I might say this brownie was a bit too crumbly, but luckily the frosting was there to hold everything together. The nice thick layer of vanilla frosting had been piped between the brownie layers, and I’ve been racking my brain to figure out how to describe the taste and texture. Let’s try this: take the hearty, lard-y frosting you find on top of the Butterfinger Cupcake and mix it with the inside of a Cadbury Creme Egg — the frosting still has enough substance to stand on its own, but it’s slightly creamier and less “greasy” than your typical “birthday cake” frosting. And the taste was divine: the super-sweet taste was cut a bit by the vanilla flavor, and it seemed to have more depth of taste. The frosting really added to the overall enjoyment of the snack instead of just serving as a rich, sweet “extra.”
So, I have to say, it might be my favorite of the bunch so far. I highly recommend picking one up on your way through Downtown Disney (they come individually boxed, so you can always pack it for the plane), and if you’re a peanut butter fan…they have one for you, too!!
Such an exciting find, this one! Always looking for new “You Won’t Believe This!” Snacks for the collection!
