Golden Snitch Butterbeer Cake Pops

Golden Snitch Butterbeer Cake Pops
Happy Harry Potter week, everyone! Since the premiere of the last movie (*tear*) is this Friday, I thought I’d make something special to commemorate the occasion. Since my butterbeer cupcakes were such a hit and I still get comments/emails/tweets daily telling me how much you all enjoyed the recipe, I wanted to revisit the recipe and remix it a little.. I have my tickets for the midnight premiere and I fully expect that you all do too, and I hope you’ll bring some of these super-cute Golden Snitch Butterbeer Cake Pops with you to share with your friends while you wait! What’s a better iconic Harry Potter shape for cake pops than the Golden Snitch? And it perfectly suits the gold-colored butterbeer cake and butterscotch taste.. These are a bit more labor-intensive than the cupcakes, but if you’re looking for something fun and super-portable to make and take with you to the premiere, you should definitely give it a try. The first thing you’ll want to do is make your wings. For wings: Related:  Sweet Tooth

Carrot Cake Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Glaze I’m not exaggerating when I write that I have been thinking about making these cinnamon rolls for five months. After posting my Sweet Potato Pecan Cinnamon Rolls last November, I started brainstorming other varieties and carrot cake immediately came to mind. I waited all of these months to make these cinnamon rolls because for some reason I associate carrot cake with Spring. Is it the bunnies? Easter? Indisputably a healthier recipe than that of most cinnamon rolls, this one calls for whole wheat pastry flour, applesauce, and a low amount of sugar. I know the directions list looks a bit intimidating, but I assure you none of the steps are too difficult. … rolling the dough up nice & snug and nestling the cut pieces into a cake pan. It’s so rewarding to peek at the rolls an hour later and behold them in their puffed-up risen glory. Then they emerge golden and warm from the oven, perfuming the air with their intoxicating aroma. Then comes the cream cheese glaze. Boring, that’s what.

Harry Potter Birthday Party My son turned 10 this year, and the last Harry Potter movie came out, so what better way to celebrate than with a Harry Potter birthday party? I got tons of ideas from Pinterest , then I decided what I could make work in my house. The first thing that I made was the sign for "Platform 9 3/4", which I placed by the door (I picked up the file that I printed here -she has TONS of other great printables for a Harry Potter party). My Sign: The next thing on my list...wands for the Wizards! Ollivander's Wand Shop: As you can see, I also made "Hogwarts Completion Certificates, but I will show those later ( I gave them out at the end of the party). As any Harry Potter fan knows, the wizards doesn't choose the wand, the wand chooses the wizard. (birthday boy had to put a spell on his sis!) Now there are lots of ideas for Harry Potter party activities if you google it, but the kids opted to ride four wheelers and play Harry Potter video games. We had a Honeyduke's Sweet Shop: And, Evan's cake: Cards :

Golden Snitch Truffles I’ve got 99 problems but a snitch ain’t one. I guess this post is about a year late. The series may technically be over, but I’m having trouble letting go. I originally made these for an HP party right before Deathly Hallows Part II. (Butterbeer, chocolate frogs, treacle tarts, and a few other wizard treats may have also been present). Golden Snitch Truffles Makes 32 Snitches Ingredients* 2 cups (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips (or dark chocolate) 1 cup whipping cream 2 tbs Kahlua or vanilla extract or flavor of choice 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 1/2-1 cup dark chocolate, 60% or higher *I swear I tried to measure everything but inevitably there were unforeseen changes along the way, so these are sort of guesstimates of the amounts I used. Supplies Wax Paper Edible Gold Powder (I used Wilton’s Pearl Dust, about $4) Edible Gold Spray (I used Duff’s Cake Graffiti, $4) Decent paint brush that’s small enough to fit in the Wilton tube Pastry bag or a ziploc Truffles Wings Assembly

Cinnamon Roll Cake You all know that I love breakfast foods. Maybe it’s because I don’t really cook breakfast that often. My husband sometimes cooks breakfast stuff on the weekends. We usually just eat cereal in the morning. The other night we had French toast with Portuguese sausage for dinner. Here’s something you could make for breakfast or dessert. Cinnamon roll cake. Super easy. Make some. You’re welcome. Ingredients (recipe from Cookin' Up North) Cake3 cups flour ¼ teaspoon salt 1 cup sugar 4 teaspoons baking powder 1 ½ cups milk 2 eggs 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract ½ cup (1 stick) butter, melted Topping1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened 1 cup brown sugar 2 tablespoons flour 1 tablespoon cinnamon Glaze 2 cups powdered sugar 5 tablespoons milk 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract Instructions Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Pots de Creme Okay, first of all, here’s how you do NOT pronounce Pots de Creme: “Pawts deh Creem.” Here’s how you DO pronounce Pots de Creme: “Po de Krehm”, or, if you want to get really technical, “Po de k(insert phlegmy, back-of-the-throat crackly French sound)ehm”. Okay, now that we have that life-altering issue under control, let’s talk about this delightful dessert! Hypothetically speaking, of course. Let’s make Pots de Creme! The Cast of Characters: Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips, Eggs, Vanilla (OR Cognac, Grand Marner, etc.), and Strong Hot Coffee. See this? Not really on the rage part. Begin by throwing in 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips. Crack in four eggs… Right on top of the chocolate chips. Add 2 teaspoons of vanilla. OR! Liqueur hardly ever disappoints me. Next, add in a healthy pinch of salt. Now, put the lid on, for Pete’s sake. Then turn on the blender. Then, as soon as the mixture is blending, remove the circular disk from the blender lid… At least, that’s what Confucius always said. I know!

Strawberry Heart Pie » It was Father’s Day this past Sunday and it’s my dad’s birthday today so I wanted to make something special for him. I had this pear-raspberry heart pie bookmarked for a while and I thought it was the perfect occasion to finally make it. I used the same heart design but I made it into a strawberry pie and I used ready made pie crusts to save time. I know you’re not going to believe me but it was really easy to make. Ingredients 3 – 4 cups of strawberries (cut into chunks)Frozen pie crustPillsbury pie crusts1/2 cup granulated sugar1/2 cup water3 tablespoon cornstarch1 egg yolkSanding sugar In a bowl, coat the cut strawberries with sugar. I used both pie crusts just in case. Let the strawberry filling cool and then pour into the pie shell. Brush one side of the hearts with the egg wash and firmly place them on the crust. This is the first row. Brush the entire pie with egg wash and dust with sanding sugar. The crust should be golden brown. The perfect sweet treat!

Burgers with Roasted Tomatoes, Pesto, and Mozzarella Looks like summer. Feels like summer. Tastes like summer. That pretty much sums up this burger. And our weekend. After weeks of cursing at begging and pleading with the basil plants to do something , they did. And that something was EXPLODE. Not in the literal sense, obviously. So I made pesto . (2 1/2 cups of pesto!) And that is truly the most satisfying thing about gardening. Pesto, roasted tomatoes, and fresh mozzarella: summer's best trio of flavors in burger form. Ingredients 1 lb ground beef (or turkey) Salt Pepper Worcestershire sauce 3 burger buns Pesto, purchased or homemade Roasted tomatoes 3 slices of fresh mozzarella Instructions Heat grill to high.
