Anne Moynihan makes desserts just like her favorite snacks
The pastry chef at Tryst creates desserts that are riffs on classic snacks such as Twinkies, Devil Dogs, and fruit pie turnovers. One recent confection was her take on a Hostess Sno Ball. She cut a coconut sheet cake into rounds, filled the cake with passion fruit curd, and frosted the round with Italian meringue and shredded coconut to look like a snowball. Her coolest current treats are frozen chocolate pops, just like Fudgsicles, which she spikes with chipotle pepper for an intriguing hint of heat.
