So, remember the Elmer’s Craft and Tell Party
from a couple of weeks ago? Well, here’s the info on some of the fabulous food as promised!!
A delicious mix of homemade & store-bought appetizers and desserts! Thanks to all of you who contributed! Everything was wonderful! Here’s a round up of the recipes/links I received from our fabulous party attendees:
Samantha, from A Little Simplicity, brought a beautiful (and yummy) strawberry trifle! Add some blueberries and star-shaped angel food cake, and you’ve got a perfect 4th of July dish!
And, last but not least, Laura, from Pink Cake Plate, wowed everyone with her cupcake push pops! A few ladies (myself included) even bought some of the containers from her so we could try making them sometime!
Here’s the recipe she made this time:
Outrageous Peanut Butter Brownie Push Pops
– 1 box of your favorite brownie mix for 9×13” pan and ingredients to make the brownies.
– 1 Cup Vanilla Pastry Pride Topping (frozen) this will whip to 3x’s its amount so 1C will = 3C
– ½ Cup Chocolate Pastry Pride Topping (frozen)
– ½ to 1C creamy Peanut Butter
– Chopped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups for garnish (I used 9 mini for 12 pops)
Make brownies as directed on package and cool completely. I used a 2” round cookie cutter and punched out as many brownies as I could! I was able to make about 13 push pops with 3 brownies in each pop!
Whip the vanilla Pastry Pride until stiff peaks form; fold in the peanut butter. I started with ½ C but increased to about 1C, or until it suits your taste! Place in either a zip lock bag and snip the tip, or fill a pastry bag, and pipe between layers of brownies.
To create the pops I started with a brownie base and then piped a layer of PB mousse and then alternated, ending with a brownie on the top.
Whip the chocolate pastry pride until stiff peaks form and place in either a zip lock bag or fill a pastry bag with a tip. Pipe the desired amount of chocolate cream on each pop and garnish with chopped Reese’s PB cups!!
*Note: Pastry Pride is like whipped cream, but non-dairy. This means you can frost or fill a cake with it, and it can sit out for hours. It tastes smooth, creamy, and not too sweet. It can be purchased at cake decorating stores (it will be in a freezer), or at Smart & Final.
So, there you have it! Some great party recipes! What sounds good to YOU?
