This past Sunday was National Peanut Butter Day!! But, you guys know that around here, every day is peanut butter day, so… I couldn’t wait to tell you about this ah-mazing snack I tried last week!
It’s at Sunshine Seasons, which is one of the best counter-service joints in Epcot. It’s home to yummy breakfasts (including their Croissant Berry Bread Pudding), healthy grab and go eats, and dinners that rival many table service meals.
But, now, I’ve found something that puts all of that to shame. I’d heard rumors about this awesomeness, and — FYI — they’re TRUE.
Warm Peanut Butter Brownie
Check out the Warm Peanut Butter Brownie.
Honestly, it doesn’t look like much at first glance. But, you can see that the Brownie Batter is swirled with Peanut Butter. So that’s awesome. A thin Caramel Glaze adds another element to the top.
But then, you cut into it and you see that there’s far more here than meets the eye initially. Inside, you meet with a thick ribbon of Peanut Buttery Goodness and a Fudgey, not-quite-fully-baked Chocolate Center.
So, basically, what this tastes like is the following:
When I was in high school, and the Buffalo Bills were doing really well (I know, right? How many of us remember those days?), I used to go to the games with my mom (yep, my mom). Well, we lived about an hour and a half away from Buffalo, so we’d have to get up reeeeeeeeeally early, put on about sixty layers of clothes, and drive to Buffalo to start the pre-game tailgating at a decent hour. (Just hang on, I’m getting to the brownie part.)
Anyway, every time we had a game scheduled, my mom and I would make caramel swirled brownies the night before. These were brownies that had a swirl (natch) of caramel on top, and I always made sure they were about 1/4 underdone when I took them out of the oven…so I had to, like, almost eat them with a spoon since they didn’t quite hold together properly as they were so fudgey.
When we got to the game, we’d unwrap the foil-wrapped, gooey, caramelly brownies and dig in. It was pretty much heaven. Right there in Buffalo. And to this day, there are very few desserts that bring me as much joy as those half-baked brownies.
OK, so take THAT description (childhood nostalgia, brownie batter, caramel, and [Insert Your Favorite Sports Team Here])…and add PEANUT BUTTER.
I KNOW, RIGHT???????!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My only negative thought is to berate my 16 year old self for not adding peanut butter to the mix way back when.
OK, so go. Get this. Now. It’s currently listed as a “seasonal” treat, but the chef I spoke to seemed pretty certain that it would stick around. Here’s hoping…
