Have you ever had a ‘sweet’ treat, so decadent, so chocolate-y, so delicious….that it’s stuck in your memory forever? Well, that description absolutely fits a WOW! Chocolate Trollop. Just look at that picture! You can almost taste them! And, before this turns into a complete commercial, how about a little history on this unique confection.
Several months ago, I was crusing the internet looking for inspiration. The goal? Look for something to jog the creative juices a bit for a new item in our WOW! Cookies! menu. Of course, ‘seek and ye shall find’ is very appropriate. I ran across a bakery blog that had all sorts of contributions from many sources, and one of them was celebrating the 101st birthday of the Oreo Brand Cookie.
Last year, I sent out a homemade chocolate sandwich cookie recipe to celebrate 100 years of America’s favorite cookie. But, this creative confection was more that even I could imagine. The originator called the inspiration piece a ‘Slutty Brownie’. Far be it from me to offend anyone, so I started thinking how I could make the original more outrageous, and name it something that could pass a censorship meter.
First, I mastered the combination of layers; An Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie, topped with an Amazing! Triple Chocolate Brownie, an Oreo Brand Cookie nestled in the middle, and topped with white chocolate and walnut pieces. That is some brownie! Next, the name!
So, turning to the most creative people I know, I posted a picture of this new confection on WOW! Cookies! Facebook page and asked friends to help name the new treat! Lord! Lord! Lord! what some of you came up with. Some unmentionable, but once all the fun started turning serious, there ended up being about 6 really great names. So “WOW! Chocolate Trollops” was selected. Still the same cheekiness as the inspiration, but acceptable to almost everyone. And ‘Trollop’ perfectly describes this naughty, slightly over-the-edge, fun chocolate brownie. Thanks to Julia Z. for providing an unforgettable name to go with such an elegant and slightly sinful ‘sweet’ treat.
