"Taking on the Treats Truck one treat at a time" series?). And for you lucky duckies with cable the episode is re-airing tonight on the Cooking Channel at 10pm EST. In honor of the show, here are a few of our very favorite Treats Truck treats...
I can't help but be rather partial to the Peanut Butter Jamwich, cause it was my entry in the Treats Truck's name-a-treat contest. While top honors went to "The Nutty Co-Worker" a cookie loaded with almonds, cashews, and hazelnuts, the peanut butter jamwich has had staying power and been part of the regular rotation since 2008. The peanut butter jamwich consists of two peanut butter cookies sandwiching a thin shmear of both creamy peanut butter and of raspberry jam. Nom nom.
If you love carrot cake the Treats Truck version is a MUST. Perfectly moist. Perfectly spiced. Just the right amount of sweetness in the frosting. You've be hard pressed to find a tastier carrot cake in the city.
ZOMG. Nostalgia alert! Did your mom ever make you conecakes for a special bring-to-school birthday treat? 'Cause my mom did. Yeah, she's that awesome. These cupcakes are the perfect handheld treats for the kid within.
Last, but certainly not least, how could we forget the epicness that is the Treats Truck nachos. CHOVEMBER may have drawn to a close, but Treats Truck nachos live on. These chocolate and caramel creme cookie “chips” topped with brownies, crispy treat pieces, drizzled with chocolate sauce and bedecked in whipped cream and sprinkles! Let's just call it like it is...full on win.
