CLICK HERE for all the nutritional details from My Food and Family. I haven’t visited with the characters from the Penumbra Papers lately and Adele McCoy, the heroine of THE DEVIL’S CUT poked me in the back and insisted I share her favorite dessert. Since I like it too, I agreed. If y’all aren’t familiar (or have forgotten), she’s paired up with werewolf FBI agent Caleb Jones. Calab is Sade Marquis’s partner and best friend. Oh, Adele is also a CSI with the Colorado Bureau of Investigation. They’re after a real demon so if urban fantasy is your catnip, check out THE DEVIL’S CUT and all the Penumbra Papers books. Just click on the cover or the title for the Universal Book Link that takes you to a list of on-line bookstores.

What about y’all? What’s your favorite flavor of filling?

  1. Ooo, this sounds yummy. I bet I could use premade pudding cups and then some kind of chocolate ganache-esque thing. Hmmmm. If we weren’t already full up on cake, I’d make it now. Maybe when the current cake is gone. =o)

    I love the Penumbra Papers! And Adele and Caleb! So much awesome!
