Photo of the Day – August 4, 2011: Robicelli’s Rocky Road Whoopee Pies
Supreme bakers Allison and Matt Robicelli launched their new Rocky Road Whoopee Pies last Sunday at the Dekalb Market. Three words to describe the flavor, texture, and finger-licking goodness: Oh. Mah. Gah.
I owe a debt of gratitude to my friend Kathy Blake, a.k.a. The Experimental Gourmand, for sharing her stash of two when we met up at the Brooklyn Flea on Sunday afternoon. We sat on the stairs in a small patch of shade and dug in.
The Robicellis’ take on this traditional, all American snack is a wonderful success. Chocolatey cakey outsides are super moist, and intensely rich. They are immediately offset by the smooth, creamy, cool white filling, which is punctuated with tiny, flavorful nuggets of roasted almonds. You can clearly see the scrumptious qualities of this sweet confection in the photo, but you really have to taste it for yourself.
Congratulations to the Robicelli’s on the opening of their first shop at the Dekalb Market. Lucky for us, they’re open 7 days a week. I predict their converted shipping container bakery will become the meeting place of choice in downtown Brooklyn.
