Le CarPeaCho Cookies

This is my take on the SumB*tch cookies from the How I Met Your Mother series.  Taking the classic elements of Caramel, Peanut butter and Chocolate, mixing them together and reveling at the results.

My favourite cake to make is Opera Cake.  Made with coffee flavoured buttercream and dense, rich ganache all beautifully layered between coffee soaked torte.  It looks super elegant and very sophisticated, but underneath all that glam is some straightforward, delicious goodness.  If you're hankering for a mocha fix, this recipe has got you covered.
