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.
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.
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.
