My motivation comes from knowing that I can fully engorge myself with lusciously sinful desserts without feeling (as) guilty. To expand on this, there are two types of people in this world. There are those that eat to live, which means eating more healthfully with the goal of living longer, AKA boring people. And then there are those that LIVE to eat, which basically means people who love food, AKA fun people.
I undoubtedly fall in the fun people category.
That being said, it should come as no surprise that I made this Butterfinger Lasagna for me, myself, and I. Meaning, I did not share one single bite of this layered lusciousness with ANYone else.
Don’t judge me.
In my defense, I did make it in a smaller dish. I could’ve easily doubled the recipe to fit a 9×13-inch dish, rather than the substantially smaller 8×8-inch dish I used. AND, I didn’t eat the entire thing in one sitting…it was more like three. Shhh!
Hey, at least I have SOME self-control. Even when I have layers of peanut buttery Nutter Butter sandwich cookies, rich butterscotch pudding, fluffy peanut butter cheesecake mousse, and the buttery crunch of Butterfinger candies STARING me straight in the eye!
Never underestimate the power and highly seductive nature of a beautifully-prepared dessert. And people wonder how it’s possible for someone to choose desserts over men. Seriously, this is the only soulmate I need in my life.
