So, here’s the thing. It was super nice this weekend. We’re talking 70 degrees for three days straight. Kiiind of unheard of here. So, I apologize in advance…There’s really not that many pictures. And there’s NO pictures of my cake pops! (I’ll add some later, promise!!)
I know, I did bad last week not posting my recipe, too. I’ll get to that one maybe later today. I DID do something (and it’s my ultimate favorite, it has a special meaning behind it.) however, it was so crazy here at work last week, we had a bunch of really important people here doing some stuff. We’re talking typically we have four people in our office, last week we had about 15. I was making supply runs like nobody’s business!!!
On top of all of that, I had the distinct pleasure of watching my parents dogs while they were out of town. Four Pomeranians. FOUR! Plus our three and the cat. Then the last weekend I had my sisters Pomeranian too. Sooo much work. Lucky I got anything done at all!
In fact, I made some pretty good crepes on Saturday. I had no idea they were so easy to make, I just never thought about it. I used this recipe: French Crepes Recipe it says to sift everything, but I didn’t have the brain capacity for that, so mine was a bit lumpy, I definitely suggest you sift if you want a perfect one. Still tasted totally amazing, just had a few lumps of flour..Haha!
My final product was crepe, cookie butter, crepe, Nutella, crepe, powdered sugar!!! Yeah, I ate this for lunch too…Don’t tell anyone!!
I also made these little sausage/french toast roll ups:
And, yeah, when I was making the french toast dredge…I got a double yolk!! (Squeal!!)
I don’t have a recipe for this…I saw a video of it on Facebook, but since it was just french toast and sausage I didn’t save it…Sorry ya’ll!! Basically what I did was cut off the crust of some cheap bread, rolled a warmed up, already cooked sausage, dunked it in my french toast mixture (I used eggs, milk, cinnamon, and allspice. Use whatever you usually use, or find a fun recipe on Pinterest!), and then set it in seam side down on your warmed skillet! Just roll to each side to cook thoroughly! These were a pretty big hit, in fact, I wasn’t even asked for syrup to dip them in!
So, Fireball. My favorite alcoholic drink. So cinnamony and amazing. I made chocolate chip cookies and cake pops. Like I said before, I don’t have ANY pictures of the cake pops. In fact, it was supposed to be just a cake..But for some reason it wouldn’t come out of the pan, I sprayed it and it was a nonstick pan, but it wasn’t my pan…I didn’t know it’s trick, I guess! So, it had to be extracted with a little more force…So cake pops, haha!
These guys were pretty tasty, as you can tell, I didn’t put that many chocolate chips in mine, put in as many or as few as you want!
Fireball Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies:
Yields about 24 cookies. Prep time: 10 minutes Bake time: 10-12 minutes. Total time: 20-22 minutes.
3 ¾ cups of flour
1 ¼ teaspoons of baking soda
1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of cinnamon (or more!)
1 ¼ cups of browned butter
1 ½ cups of brown sugar
¾ cup of sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla
½ cup of Fireball
1 bag of chocolate chips (I only used about ¼ of a bag, use whatever makes you happiest!)
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.
- Brown the butter on the stove top.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or with your hand mixer, cream the slightly cooled browned butter and both sugars.
- Beat in the egg and vanilla.
- Add in the Fireball whiskey.
- Stir in your flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon.
- Finally, fold in your chocolate chips.
- Use two spoons (or just your hands) and scoop out small amounts and place on cookie sheet.
- Bake 10-12 minutes and then cool!
Yields 30ish cake pops. Prep time: 45 minutes Bake time: 30 minutes. Total time: 75 minutes.
Cake Pop Batter:
1 box of white cake mix
Egg and oil called for on box
Replace water with Fireball Whiskey
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F and spray a 9×13 cake pan with non-stick cooking spray.
- Mix all ingredients together.
- Pour into prepared pan and bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
- Cool completely before crumbling.
- Add in frosting, I just used tubbed vanilla frosting. I use around ½ tub, but you’ll know the correct amount of frosting when it starts to stick together and not crumble apart anymore.
