The "Better Than Sex" dessert.....

I have a fabulous 5 ingredient dessert to share with ya'll. This dessert has no name. I've dubbed it the "Better Than Sex" dessert. Although, I have to add a disclaimer here......it's not ACTUALLY better than sex. I mean, you'd have to have some pretty bad nookie to put ANY dessert above it. But.... you know..... I had to give it a name worthy of it's mouth watering goodness.

Ingredients:

Brownies - I'm only counting this as one ingredient....so sue me. I HIGHLY recommend Costco's Triple Fudge Ghirardelli brownies...you'll NEVER taste a better brownie.... I double dog dare you to disagree. I am a self proclaimed brownie expert so don't bother arguing with me. To make these brownies you'll need eggs, oil and water along with the brownie mix so technically this would be three ingredients instead of one.

Fresh Strawberries

Bananas

Cool whip - I use the sugar free cool whip...it tastes just as good as the real stuff and since the brownies alone could put one into a sugar coma....well....it can't hurt to eliminate a little extra.

Heath Toffee bits

Instructions -

1)In a Trifle bowl you will layer the ingredients.
First crumble the brownies at the bottom of the bowl.


2) Use an egg slicer to slice the fresh strawberries and layer over the crumbled brownies.


3) Do the same with the bananas and layer over the strawberries

4) Spread a layer of cool whip over the bananas
5) Sprinkle Heath Toffee bits over the Cool Whip

6) repeat steps 1 - 5



This has become my signature party dessert. There's NEVER leftovers. Divine yumminess. Try it. Really. You'll never be the same.

Look at all that fruit. Clearly, it's a diet dessert. No wonder it's better than sex.

That looks beautiful! I couldn't eat it though, I have a thing about fruit being mushy and it would get all funky in there. I know, I'm weird, sue me.

I'll stick to the sex! hehhe

Since I am not currently HAVING sex, and have no real prosepcts of having sex in the future, near OR far, I would be willing to bet that this dessert would be better! :)

HOLY CRAP!! That looks so amazing... Can I come over, like now?

Marni's Organized Mess said...

Funny you keep saying that... you are the like the #1 blogger I always think... man, too bad she lives so far, I could totally get along with this chick.

Maybe one day when we are rich and old we will meet for a Girl's ScrapWeekend and just sit together ALL weekend with the ladies.

Ok, well, it's MY fantasy. :)

MMM....yummy. I've seen a variation of that dessert before, except with no fruit. You can use pound cake or regular cake, whatever flavor, then pudding, Kool-whip and toffee bits or chocolate chips, nuts, whatever. I totally dig the idea of brownies and strawberries together, since chocolate-dipped strawberries are my favorite food ever.

Man! Now I want to make this!! So much for my "diet".

Yum! Too bad my man doesn't like cool whip? I know, who doesn't like cool whip -- I can eat it like ice cream!

EatPlayLove said...

Looks delicious and I agree about those brownies, the best! I'm a fresh whip cream kind of girl, now I need a reason to make this.

Tracey said...

I have a similar recipe I got from my mom....BETTER THEN SEX CAKE!!! I'll have to post it soon.

Mama Zen said...

Yum and YUM!

LittlePaintedPolkaDots said...

Oh yum! How long would I have to run if I chose to eat that entire dessert by myself...lmao!

Chile said...

Hm, wonder if there's a way to make a vegan version of that? I could make brownies from scratch or use a great diet trick of making a boxed brownie mix with black beans instead of eggs and oil. (Dump entire can of beans & juice in blender, puree, mix with dry brownie mix. Bake as directed.) There are a couple of nondairy whip cream toppings, but the toffee would be a problem. I'll bet plain ol' salted peanuts would still taste good, but the dessert would have to be re-named "Not Quite as Good as Sex, but Damn Close!"

Yummmmmmmmmmmmmm! That looks awesome! Must try immediately.

UNH - I'm DROOLING!!! Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...
