Billy's Bakery Hello Dolly bars make me happy to be alive

Okay, I know I'm not impartial. But I promise that nothing contained in this post is untrue, and frankly I bring forth the following information more as a public service to you readers than something that will help me. Hell, I know these things are good.

Full of promise

I speak, of course, of Billy's Bakery's Hello Dolly bar. Yes, Billy's cupcakes are fantastic. Yes, the banana cake is sublime. But recently, I've found myself turning more and more to the Hello Dolly bar, almost on a daily basis.

Ready for the eatin'

This incredible creation is a mixture of chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, pecans, coconut, and graham cracker crumbs. There's a whisper-thin sugary crust coating the confection and just a bare hint of brown-sugary, graham-crackery dough holding all the ingredients together. And do I even need to note how many chocolate and butterscotch chips are packed into each bar? No, I don't. But I just did anyway.

The cross-section reveals all the chips inside...

...and a bite of the corner liberates pecan, coconut, and sugary dough. Mmmmm.

If you love life, or if you don't love life yet but want to eat something that will make you love life, make your way to Billy's Bakery and purchase a Hello Dolly bar. Words fail me. Just do it.

It really is that good. I can only imagine how good this thing is when warm and fresh out of the oven. Nice work Janine. We need to get together for a Billy's review by NYC Food Guy
