Chocolate Peanut Butter Chunk

The weight or health conscious should steer clear of Gastronomia’s newest creation – the Chocolate Peanut Butter Chunk ($9). It is made up of a dense layer of chocolate brownie, topped with a layer of cornflakes cum peanut butter mixture, followed by whole peanuts soaked in thick sticky toffee, and finally a slab of chopped nuts infused chocolate fudge as a finishing top. Described to be best served when heated for 20sec, we requested for it to be served in this very manner. The viscous toffee overflowed and the warm, moist chocolate brownie was soaked entirely in it upon heating. Messy but each mouthful was filled with the richness of chocolate and peanut butter and the intense sweetness of the toffee sauce. The peanuts and cornflakes introduced additional textures to the entire dessert. We learned later that the cornflakes are actually feuilletine; crispy, thin little shards of sugar cone. It seemed to us a clever integration of Canele’s Charlie Brown and Caraibe. Decadent, heavenly and sinful!

    • It’s definitely worth a try, especially for fans of peanut butter! You can consider getting a few friends to share the load.
