Yet another page that is undergoing a transformation and being updated. Please bear with me!
This is probably a no-brainer category, but here is a few ideas (some from my kids) of what to do with just a smidge of left overs. Perhaps you have a favorite or two to add.
Dessert Sauces and Ice-Cream Toppings:
Drizzle over ice creams, waffles, pancakes, cake.
2. add in:
Add to coffees or lattes, ice-cream for shakes, milk.
3. dress up dessert:
Drizzle plates or any desserts.
4. combine with fruit:
- Caramel: drizzle over or add in to applesauce, sautéed apples, apple crisp, etc.
- Chocolate: drizzle over or under a dessert plate, serve with bananas. Dip bananas and freeze.
- Fruit: add to whipping cream to complement another dessert.
Shell Type Chocolate:
1. make designs:
Drizzle on parchment into a design and garnish another dessert.
Dip bananas (or other fairly dry fruit) into warmed sauce. Let harden.
3. fruit salad:
Drizzle over fruit salad. Even better if the fruit salad has marshmallows.
place nuts in little piles and drizzle with the topping to bind them together.
Dip pretzels in the topping or lay pretzels out and drizzle.
1. cake pops:
Mix with frosting until it can be formed into small balls. Scoop balls out and roll. Dip or drizzle with icing or chocolate.
Mix in shakes for your very own blizzards. Garnish as desired.
Layer with pudding and fruit (if desired) and serve cold, topped with whipped cream.
4. toast or grill:
If your cake is sturdy, toast or grill it and serve with ice-cream, sauce, fruit or a fruit compote.
5. Crumble and use for an ice-cream topping.
Try this easy recipe that uses just a few brownies and turns them into a sophisticated dessert.
Press brownie crumbs and pieces into a pie pan, layer with anything else you’d like such as candy, marshmallows, etc. Drizzle with enough melted and slightly cooled chocolate to bind everything and cool.
3. ice-cream pie.
Press brownie crumbs and pieces into a pie pan, layer with ice-cream and other goodies. Freeze until firm.
4. deep fry:
Yeah, I went there: see this recipe from the Cookie Rookie for Fried Brownie Truffle Bites.
5. use in cookies:
Cut them up and add to cookie dough batter along with chocolate chips in this recipe from the Picky Palate.
2. parfaits or trifles:
