PPQ – Toffee Bar Brownie Torte
The impressive Project Pastry Queen recipes just keep coming! This one, chosen by Sarah, is a
three two layer brownie dessert thatâ€™s stuffed with a mascarpone filling and frosted with an espresso whipped cream. Once itâ€™s completed you press bits of crushed toffee bar into the sides. Is your head exploding from awesomeness yet?
Despite sounding difficult, this one was actually really simple and surprisingly quick. I started first thing in the morning (weâ€™re talking 6 am) thinking it would take me all day and I was done within 3 hours! Most of that time was spent waiting for the brownies to cool and/or procrastinating.
The brownies are decent. The recipe is so massive that it was hard for me to find a mixing bowl in my kitchen big enough to hold all the batter. I feel like I had some lumps that shouldnâ€™t have been there because of the bowl situation and the end result was a little bumpy. Tasty brownies though and thatâ€™s all that matters! The mascarpone filling it out of this world and thatâ€™s coming from someone who doesnâ€™t see the appeal of mascarpone! The whipped cream frosting is tasty but a little strong of espresso. I had to add an extra 1/4 cup or so of powdered sugar to get the bitterness out.
The finished product is outstanding, of course! How could you not love a layered brownie?! I know you want the recipe so make sure you head to Sarahâ€™s blog to check it out.
