The Candy Bar Pie at Momofuku Milk Bar should come with a warning: advisable only for those with a seriously intense sweet tooth. (Ahem, me.)
Everything at Milk Bar, from the cinnamon bun frozen yogurt to the multilayer chocolate cake to the buttery crack pie, is delicous and tooth-achingly sweet but the Candy Bar Pie takes it to a whole new level.
Under a crisp, thin blanket of chocolate there’s a crunchy pretzel on a bed of creamy peanut butter nougat, on top of a gooey layer of caramel, all on a dark, thick chocolate crust. All at once it’s sweet, salty, crunchy, sticky, crumbly and smooth. It’s a candy bar wrapped in a candy bar wrapped in another candy bar.
My dentist would not be happy about me eating this.
