This cake is for chocolate lovers only. In fact, you should probably be obsessed with chocolate in order to make this cake since every component has chocolate; from the chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream base, to the swirled chocolate wafer sticks wrapped around it, to the chocolate candy chunks on top!
Oreos and marshmallows make a great combination . . . who would have thought? I’m making these bars, which are super simple, as I have a big cake project in the plans, and you need to know how to make these before I get to the special video!
There is a lot of flexibility when it comes to these bars. You can add extra marshmallows, or extra cookies to change the way that the bars taste and feel. The more cookies you add, the crunchier the bars will be. And vise versa, the more marshmallows you add, the chewier the bars will be. I would also take a guess and say that mixing in a different flavour of sandwich cookie would be good too. Maybe any cookie would work!?! If you try that out, let me know!
Making our way to California is quite an effort when you live in the small, relatively isolated, place that we do. While booking our most recent trip to Los Angeles with a travel agent, I had to explain to her where Cranbrook was located, and how to get out of it by plane. I don’t think she was having a very good day when I phoned her, as she seemed rather annoyed about 1. my location, 2. my limited airline options, 3. the fact that Paul and I don’t have the same last name. After arguing with her that a one hour stop over in Calgary was NOT enough time to get through security (switching airlines takes us out of security area) and customs (damn USA), and her insistence that one hour was the “standard allowable time”, she finally relinquished and “allowed” us to be routed through Vancouver. After all that, we had our tickets, and we left Cranbrook in a snow storm, and arrived in LA in the warm sun!
Visiting YouTube Space LA again was great! They have such a great group of people that keep that place running. While there, we met up with Chef Jason Hill of the YouTube channel Chef Tips, and we decided to do a collob together. On our channel, we make these delicous cookies and cream stuffed strawberries, and over on his channel, we make an adorable fruit turkey! Make sure you check his channel out.
