Mudpie Square

There are very few things that you can buy in New York for $2. Before this week I thought it would get you little more than a bottle of water or a prepackaged cookie. I once went to Dean & Deluca and ordered a Rice Krispie treat, only to find out it cost $4 (I walked out without it). After living here for 3 years I have become used to high prices, but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate a good deal, especially when it involves chocolate.

On my way to pick up more baking accessories at New York Cake & Baking this week, I stopped at Daniele’s Piadina next door to get an iced tea. I was a little hungry and decided to order their Mudpie Square as a snack. All I knew about the square was that it was chocolate and cost $2, so I figured it would be a nice, small bite that would satisfy my chocolate craving. What the woman took out from behind the counter amazed me. Not only was the Mudpie Square a beautiful piece of chocolate, but it was HUGE. It was approximately 3″ square, and tasted like a combination a fudge, pudding and brownies. The pudding-like center made it melt in your mouth, and I savored every bite. It is one of the best chocolate desserts in the city, all for only $2! I wish I had a picture to show you, but I finished it well before I got home to my camera. I’ll use this as an excuse to go back for more.
