When I was younger and did not regularly take my medication to regulate some of my symptoms from PCOS, I would get these insatiable cravings for chocolate. I remember my first Christmas I stayed in England and didn’t go back to the US was a particularly bad time for me craving-wise. At the time I was working a very hectic, but incredibly high paying job during the break that forced me to travel all around the city like a madwoman. Often, I was up at around 6 or 7 in the morning to get ready, went out to eat for breakfast (probably my favorite part of the job was that I could afford to eat out a lot), and I wouldn’t get home until around 2am most nights. I would often have to go all the way to Snaresbrook and a few hours later be in Rickmansworth (they were on complete opposite ends of the city). It was hellish, but like I said, the money was awesome (We’re talking like £500 a day).
Since I was a bit of a tight wad with my money and preferred to spend it on food instead of travel, I would always take the tube or bus instead of splurging on a cab (which was something I did get in trouble over a few times), I would usually end up having lunch at some shop in one of the stations. During one of my chocolate crazes, I was trying to hunt down a place that had something chocolaty and decadent. Eventually I ran into a place called Crussh (you know, the one where I discovered the amazingness that is the detox cactus smoothie). They had these raw chocolate peanut butter bars that were possibly the best thing I’ve had in my life.
Of course, what I have for you today is not exactly healthy like that raw bar was. Okay, so it’s probably the complete antithesis of health, but it is no bake and that’s kiiiiinda the same, right?
There’s a bit of stove action going on, but it’s really not that bad and you can make it well ahead of time if you want. Plus, we are making my favorite Bailey’s hot fudge sauce which is freaking amazing. And not just cause you can drink some Bailey’s while you cook. (But you can, and I even recommend having at least a small glass. We don’t do any judging around these parts.)
After that you just mix, layer, chill, and eat.
Snickers + no bake peanut butter cheesecake + Bailey’s hot fudge cause + caramel = utter happiness.
