My husband loves blueberries and I love coconut… so this was my creation of blending the two together.  I had no idea how it was going to turn out. But I have to say it is AMAZING and a new family favorite for sure.  The cake is light and moist and the fresh berries  are both tart and sweet all at the same time.  While the crumble topping adds the perfect finishing touch… just trust me your family will love it.

Candy Bar Crescent Rolls ~ A yummy way to use up extra candyCandy Bar Crescent Rolls

Okay, first I have to thank lovely, Sarah, for sharing the roll recipe years ago, because without that recipe, these babies wouldn’t have been developed. When I first started following A Thrifty Mom, Sarah, had shared a roll recipe. Do y’all remember that? Did you print that delicious roll recipe out?! If you didn’t and want too, go to the highlighted link above. Every time I make them I’m asked time and time again for the recipe. Yes, they’re that good! The other night while making them, (I need to tell you I make them at least once a month if not more. We LOVE these rolls. :)) I thought, “I wonder how these would taste if I slightly adapted them and stuffed them full of our left over Snicker and MilkyWay candy bars?!” I just had to do it! Ohmyheavens, they were so yummy. A soft buttery roll, stuffed with melted candy bars – gooey caramel, chocolate and drizzled with glaze. Yes, please!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 3 large eggs, whipped
  • 3/4 cups unsalted butter, browned
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 6 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • Fun size candy bars, your desired brand ( we used MilkyWay & Snicker)
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • Approx. 3 tablespoons milk

Directions

  1. Grease a large baking sheet, set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, Combine yeast and sugar; stir in warm water. Let yeast mixture set approx. 5 minutes until creamy.
  3. In a small bowl, whip three eggs, set aside.
  4. In a medium sauce pan, brown 3/4 cup butter over medium heat. Being careful not to burn and stirring continually until butter turns a light brown color. Remove from heat.
  5. Add Whipped eggs, brown butter and sea salt to yeast mixture.
  6. Slowly stir in 1 cup of flour at a time. Dough will be very sticky.
  7. Cover dough with plastic wrap and place a clean dry dish towel over the top. Let rise in a warm place for approx. 1 hour.
  8. Meanwhile preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  9. Remove towel and plastic wrap, lightly flour the top of dough; punch dough down.
  10. Divide dough equally in two. Shape each piece of dough into approx. a 15 inch circle. Cut each 15 inch circle into 8 triangles with a pizza cutter. Ending with 16 triangles.
  11. Chop desired candy bars and stuff each triangle with approx. 2 fun size candy bars for each crescent/triangle.
  12. Roll up each crescent, ending at the tip of triangle.
  13. Place stuffed crescents on greased baking sheet and bake for 10- 13 minutes.
  14. Meanwhile make the glaze by whisking together 2 cups powdered sugar and 3 tablespoons milk. Glaze will be some what thick.
  15.  Remove candy bar crescents from the oven and place on a cooling rack. Let rolls slightly cool. Place a piece of aluminum foil or waxed paper underneath to catch the glaze or use your baking sheet that you baked the rolls on. With a spoon, scoop glaze into a Ziploc bag, working the glaze to the corner. Cut a tiny piece of the corner off the Ziploc bag. Drizzle each crescent with glaze, serve warm.

Green Tomato Raspberry Jello Jelly Recipe ~ What to do with Green Tomatoes #Hacks

I am excited to share this Green Tomato Raspberry Jello Jelly Recipe with you!  id you know that you can make Raspberry flavored jelly with green tomatoes.  I know it sounds WEIRD, I totally understand.  But take my word for it, you can not taste the tomatoes at all.  I did not tell my kids what was in the jelly till AFTER they ate a whole jar (took about a week)…. I then told them it was made out of tomatoes they wouldn’t believe me.   My husband said it taste like the filling in a jelly doughnut 🙂

This recipe is rather quick and easy, go ahead and give it a try!

Wipe the rim of your jar clean, add a lid secure with a metal ring. Turn upside down for 5 minutes.  Then turn them right side up again, most of them will “pop” sealed right after you flip them over.  But others might take a while longer. Make sure they have sealed, once opened store in the refrigerator.  Unopened jars of  Green Tomato Raspberry Jello Jelly should stay good up to a year.

****** Update from reader Nancy 

I just discovered your Green Tomato Jam recipe and have a couple of comments that may answer a question or two from the comments I saw (I couldn’t find the comments again on my phone, so that’s why I came here).

1) Just semantics: it’s jam, not jelly. For jelly, think jello–clear, juice only.

2) This recipe is very similar to some rhubarb jam I’ve made for many years (I’m very old!). That recipe is boiled for 25 minutes, then jello and crushed pineapple is added. I made the mistake once of thinking that the jello was added instead of pectin, that the jello was what made it set up (I tried that once when I ran out of pectin for another recipe. Whoops!). Not so. The jello is merely for taste (strawberry is great with rhubarb; I can’t wait to try the raspberry). One of your readers asked if she could thicken it by adding more jello. No, that would just make it sweeter and “stronger” tasting.

3) (I guess it’s a continuation of the last) The natural pectin in the fruit/tomatoes is being developed by the cooking. So cook it more to thicken it.

Happy cooking, and thanks for the recipe!

Baked Caramel Apple Waffles with Crumb Topping

Baked Caramel Apple Waffles with Crumb Topping 

This recipe was totally inspired by Paula Dean. She has a recipe for a killer, Baked French Toast Casserole with Maple Syrup. This is where the inspiration came from for this Baked Caramel Apple Waffles with Crumb Topping. Thank you darlin’! She’s one of my foodie heroes. I love the woman. She reminds me of the women in my family, on my dads side. One day I would like to meet her. Yeah, it’s on my bucket list. 🙂

This dish could easily pass for breakfast or dessert. If serving for dessert, may I suggest a la mode style?! Bring. It. On. Baaaby. Whoops, forgot for a moment I was watching my calories. 🙁

Don’t let the ingredients list/directions fool you, this was easily put together!

Ingredients

  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 2 boxes (11.6 oz.) each Eggo thick & fluffy – cinnamon brown sugar waffles
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup 1% milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • pinch of allspice
  • sprinkle of salt

Caramel Apple Topping

  • 3 large granny smith apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch caramel topping + extra for drizzling the crumb topping.

Crumb Topping

  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup salted butter

Directions

  1. Spray a 3 qt. baking dish with non-stick cooking spray, set aside.
  2. Arrange 10 Eggo waffles in your baking dish, in two rows, overlapping each one. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs,  1 1/2 cups heavy cream, 1/2 cup 1% milk, 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon sugar, 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, pinch of allspice, sprinkle of salt. Pour this mixture over the waffles, making sure that each waffle is covered evenly. If needed spoon some of the mixture into the waffle indentations. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or until the waffles soak up most of the milk/egg mixture. You may have a bit of the milk/egg mixture left over in the bottom of the baking dish, this is okay.
  3. Using the same large bowl that you used for the milk/egg mixture let’s make the caramel apple topping by combining diced apples, 1/3 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon allspice and 1/2 cup butterscotch caramel topping; stir. Set aside.
  4. Once waffles have absorbed most of the milk/egg mixture, remove from the refrigerator. Spread caramel apple topping over the waffles.
  5. Let’s make the crumb topping. In the same large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup salted butter, mix together with a fork or pastry blender to make pea sized crumbles. Top caramel apple topping with crumb topping. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F. oven for 45 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and drizzle generously with butterscotch caramel topping. Serve as is or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
