Balloon Buns

25 Aug

I found this recipe on allrecipes.com… my favorite recipe site and HAD to try them. They look way better on the allrecipes site but they tasted delicious. Even though mine looked funny, I will still keep these on the list for “easy things to make with the kiddos”.

Ingredients

3 Tbsp Sugar

1 tsp Cinnamon

1 10-count Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits

10 Large Marshmellows

1/4 cup Butter, melted

Start Preparing

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix together sugar and cinnamon until well combined.
  3. Flatten biscuits. Roll 1 marshmellow at a time in butter and then the cinnamon-sugar mixture; Place on the flattened biscuit and bring sides of biscuit up to cover marshmellow. Place in muffin tin, seam side down. Repeat until biscuits are gone.
  4. Brush remaining butter ontop of each biscuit and then sprinkle with remaining cinnamon-sugar.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes; or until tops are golden brown.

(I did read that if you use larger biscuits than they may not explode, like mine did. Whichever though, they taste delicious and even though they look funny… they are different… and different is good!)

Brookies

19 Aug

So, I originally saw this idea on Bakerella.com. She just calls them pillow cookies but with the help from my creative husband, we thought of this cool name. Brookies are very simple but pretty delicious.

Ingredients

1 box Brownie Mix+ ingredients needed

4 pouches Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip mix + Ingredients needed

Start Preparing

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prepare the brownie mix as directed on the box and bake; Set aside.
  3. Prepare the cookie mix as directed but do not bake.
  4. Cut brownies into half an inch cubes.
  5. Put a dollop (about 1 Tbsp) of cookie dough batter in the palm of your hand and then press the brownie cube in the middle. Put a little bit of cookie dough on top of the brownie and form the cookie dough over the cube so that all of the brownie is covered.
  6. Bake for about 20 minutes.

(This recipe will make about 30 large cookies…. if wanting to only make a few then use 1-2 pouches of cookie mix and enjoy the remaining brownies by themselves!)
