I’ve been having a Tom Petty summer. It seems like every time I get in the car, I’m listening to “Breakdown” or “Mary Jane’s Last Dance.”
And Petty’s been strangely relaxing lately, like a drug.
So this is my edible ode to the 70’s rocker.
Actually, it’s Martha Stewart’s recipe, with a few tweaks. But I did give it a sweet new name.
This is peanut butter at its best — just a little sugar and salt to bring out its natural beauty. Pretzels add some crunch, too, and a little salt of their own.
Then all of those little balls of peanut butter bliss get covered in melted chocolate.
This is now my favorite peanut butter dessert.
My dad loves German chocolate cake. It’s his fave.
So I’ve been studying recipes (I have stacks of library cookbooks I check out again and again) so I could make him some from scratch.
I now have a batch for him to try tomorrow.
I’m thinking — yes. These are them.
First, I tasted the caramel coconut-pecan frosting — delicious. Much richer and more flavorful than the store-bought stuff.
Second, the cake — awesomely good.
