Each of the four featured flavors was inspired by a Duff Goldman classic recipe, so people who watch a lot of Food Network may be familiar with them. Birthday Cake is the most vanilla of the bunch: a white chocolate shell filled with vanilla cake mousse. Cookie Dough has a milk chocolate shell, a cookie dough ganache filling, and dark chocolate chips liberally sprinkled on top. Butterscotch Walnut looks like it might be a dark chocolate, since it’s got a milk chocolate shell with molasses dusted atop...but inside, it’s butterscotch caramel and maple walnut cream. Pineapple Hummingbird is the wild card of the bunch, and probably should have been called Tropical if the creators wanted to stay true to their simplicity-in-naming theme. It’s a white chocolate shell, pineapple and banana ganache filling with pecan cream cheese frosting.
