We also sent a box of our custom party horns. Every child’s party need loud noise and our popular party horns fit the bill. These can be custom designed and hand wrapped for your special day too!

Mardi Gras: The Big “Easy” Beignets

By jo anne

Some awesome fun in the kitchen with the kids may turn into a

powdered sugar war but who cares—-

laissez les bom temps rouler!

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 15 min
Yields: Makes 4-6 servings; 2-3 beignets a person

Ingredients

  • 1 can refrigerator buttermilk biscuits (any kind but FLAKY)
  • 4 cups vegetable oil, for frying
  • powdered sugar, for dusting or
  • ground cinnamon, for dusting- optional(almost like a churro)
  1. Pour oil into Dutch oven or 3 qt. pot and heat over medium heat to approximately 350 degrees.
  2. While oil is heating, separate 1 can of refrigerated biscuits.
  3. Cut each round biscuit into quarters. Roll each quarter in hands creating a small ball. Repeat until all the biscuit dough has been formed into  balls. They will measure approximately 1 inch.
  4. Gently place each ball into the hot oil. If necessary, cook in batches. You will want to  have enough room so that each ball can be rolled ensuring that all sides are nicely browned.
  5. Browning should take about 1 to 2 minutes.  Watch the beignets carefully, if the oil is too hot they will brown very quickly. The oil should be no hotter than 350 because you want to be  sure the center of each beignet has had time to cook.
  6. Remove beignets after browning and place onto a paper towel or brown paper bag to drain.

I made these with my kids last week and we loved them!!! They were so good!

 

Mmmm Mardi Gras: Praline Recipe

By jo anne

OK seriously, I can not stop eating the pralines sent to me by Cyndi!

She sure knows my sweet addiction! Gearing up for Mardi Gras in a few days, I wanted you to have this recipe for these delicious pralines.

 I say Pray-leens Cyndi says Pra-Lins. Which way  is it??

1-4-serving size package regular (not instant!) vanilla pudding mix

 1-cup packed browned sugar

 1/2 cups sugar

 1 5 ounce can evaporated milk

 1 t vanilla

 2 scant cups coarsely chopped pecans

How to make it
Step 1: Combine pudding mix, brown sugar, and sugar in a medium saucepan. Stir in evaporated milk. Bring mixture to a full boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 7-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 2: Remove saucepan from heat; stir in vanilla. Beat three minutes; do not over beat. (mixture should be shiny when dropped.) Stir in pecans.

 Step 3: Drop by tablespoon onto waxed paper. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour to harden.

Makes 24.

 If you use a 6-serving pkg of pudding mix, increase all ingredients by 50%; make up the difference in evaporated milk withheavy cream if evap milk not available, increase boiling time to 8-9 minutes

Let us know how yours turn out!! Yummy!

Mardi Gras Party: The Best Beignets

I love this sweet treat! And I love my sweet friend Cyndi who is straight from the streets of Louisiana!

This week she is sharing her delicious Southern recipes for us as we prep for Super Bowl Sunday in New Orleans and Mardi Gras that is right around the corner!

Let’s start it off by rolling the dough!

Beignets Recipe
Total Time: 2 hr 30 min Prep 15 min Inactive 2 hr 0 min Cook 15 min Yield: about 3 dozen

 Beignets Ingredients

1 1/2 cups lukewarm water

 1/2 cup granulated sugar

 1 envelope active dry yeast

 2 eggs, slightly beaten

 1 1/4 teaspoons salt

1 cup evaporated milk

 7 cups bread flour

1/4 cup shortening Nonstick spray Oil, for deep-frying

 3 cups confectioners’ sugar

 Directions

 Mix water, sugar, and yeast in a large bowl and let sit for 10 minutes.

In another bowl, beat the eggs, salt and evaporated milk together. Mix egg mixture to the yeast mixture.

 In a separate bowl, measure out the bread flour. Add 3 cups of the flour to the yeast mixture and stir to combine.

 Add the shortening and continue to stir while adding the remaining flour. Remove dough from the bowl, place onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth.

Spray a large bowl with nonstick spray. Put dough into the bowl and cover with plastic wrap or a towel.

Let rise in a warm place for at least 2 hours. Preheat oil in a deep-fryer to 350 degrees F. Add the confectioners’ sugar to a paper or plastic bag and set aside.

Roll the dough out to about 1/4-inch thickness and cut into 1-inch squares. Deep-fry, flipping constantly, until they become a golden color.

 After beignets are fried, drain them for a few seconds on paper towels, and then toss them into the bag of confectioners’ sugar.

Hold bag closed and shake to coat evenly.

For perfect presentation make a cone from the daily newspaper or bag up the treats in cute favor bags. A brown kraft paper bag will do the trick or a striped or dotted candy bag .

Let me know if you try the recipe! I know you’ll want to come back for more. She will also be sharing a kid friendly version for the pint sized partiers.

Laissez les bons temps roullez!!
