"A visually appealing book that's fun, bright, colorful and easy to read. I decided I should go way outside my personal box and try the cashew sriracha frosting.... I will gladly eat my words if they have this frosting on them.... This is a very fun book that inspired me to try some new things, and rethink some of my flavor combinations." - American Cake Decorating Magazine

These triple chocolate cookies from The Dollop Book of Frosting (Adams), by Heather 'Cupcakes' Saffer, are elevated with the addition of special brownie batter frosting.
