I'm going to lay it down on the table right now: of all delicious desserts, Petit Fours are probably my absolute favorites. It's common to find me combing the "yesterday's bake" rack at Stop and Shop during the holidays for any packages of petit fours I can find. There's something about their delicious chocolate-coated-cakey goodness that I can't resist.
So, imagine my delight when I found boxes of petit fours at Ocean State Job Lot the other day. Delicious! I begged Dave to get me a box of them and couldn't even wait until we were in the car to try one. I held the small cake in my mouth as I struggled to close the box, and Dave couldn't help but laugh at me as I said, "Oh my God, I'm drooling!"
And these petit fours are totally droolworthy. Rich vanilla flavor and soft, spongy cake are perfectly matched by soft, smooth vanilla buttercream frosting and white chocolate coating. I'm completely content with these petit fours, although my favorites will always be the vanilla ones with the smidge of raspberry jam in the center.
