In our family, we have two kinds of dessert eaters: the "fluffy dessert" lovers and the "gooey, heavy dessert" lovers.
My husband, Lee and my son, heavy, all the way. My daughter and I, definitely go for the fluff factor. Light, airy, slightly sweet... Yep, that's a must if we're gonna indulge a little bit. Something actually not so easy to find in store bought desserts!
Given my hate/hate relationship with baking, I have to no choice but to rely on my little sister to come up with something we can enjoy. And, as usual she didn't disappoint us.
Here's the perfect little bite she came up with for us to enjoy during Passover: nutty, chocolaty and light. Dairy and gluten free. Quick and super easy to make. The perfect treat to enjoy with coffee or as a quick snack.
I can already hear Lee putting in his request for some heavy, gooey, goodness... 🙂
