I’ve met a great group of colleagues at work and we’ve started a cooking club. Every month or two, one of us will host the rest and we learn how to cook or bake something new. This time around was a chocolate covered edition. We went wild dipping and decorating some pretzel wands and strawberries!
Double boiling the chocolate is a must for success. White chocolate is harder to keep melted but if you move quickly, you can get a lot out of one batch.
The dark chocolate double boiled stayed liquid for a long time.
First step is dipping the goods in chocolate.
Get your toppings ready!
We had a lot of fun with this 🙂
We added a lot of personality to some of the sticks.
You can even make little faces with different toppings.
We also made some delicious strawberries.
And dressed ’em up in tuxes.
We boxed up the goods and everyone could take them home. It’s a great group dessert cooking activity!
Apricots are one of my favorite foods and the only time we can eat them is during the Summer! This recipe for pecan brittle with apricots takes only 15 minutes and is so easy to make, it’s the perfect Summer treat! Just follow these simple instructions.
(Add one cup of sugar to a non-stick sauce pan)
(Spray your baking dish with oil and pour your brittle mix in. Sprinkle sea salt on top and score with a sharp knife)
(Once it cools, break into chunks and place in a cup with Greek yogurt and apricots)
It’s that easy and is really tasty!
They’re round, moist, and delicious! We LOVE buns! Especially cinnamon buns with lots of icing! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner we decided to get creative and turn something delicious into something thoughtful!
(First, use a pre-made cinnamon bun like Pillsbury and spread them out about 2 inches from each other on a baking sheet)
(Mold the dough into heart shapes)
(Cook according to directions and watch those buns rise!)
(Ice the warm buns and sprinkle with your favorite color sugar crystals!)
Don’t you want a piece of this gooey deliciousness? Treat your honey or bestie to this on Valentine’s Day and you will have their heart forever!
