Sugar Rush: Oreo-Stuffed Brownies at Dessert Club ChikaLicious
This is the Oreo Brownie ($4.15) from ChikaLicious, split down the middle. A double layer of plain and peanut butter oreos come baked right into a chocolate brownie round. It's fudgy milk chocolate, and purposely under-baked so you get a soft bite that breaks into a crunch as you hit the Oreo. It's more a novelty than a daily treat, but fun nonetheless. Also take note of the new soft serve flavors at ChikaLicious. They're famous for the vanilla bean soft serve, but now they've added a respectable Matcha Soft-Serve ($5.95) alongside a holiday special of Eggnog Soft-Serve that comes topped with frosted pecans. There's also a (non-fat, seriously) Maple-Bacon-Donut Soft-Serve which has been "unavailable" on my last two visits. We'll let you know when we finally get to try it.
