Chocolate Cherry Crescents / #15 Minute Friday

It is 15 Minute Friday, and today we have some Chocolate Cherry Crescents to share. Made with fresh cherries and semi sweet chocolate, these are sure to become a favorite treat!
 Chocolate Cherry Crescents
(makes 8 crescents)
(printable recipe at end of post)
1 package regular Crescent Rolls
1 cup fresh Cherries
1/4 cup semi sweet Chocolate Chips
1/2 cup Confectioners Sugar
1 tablespoon Milk


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

 Pit cherries and then chop the cherries in to quarters.
Unwrap the crescents and cut apart from each other. Add 1 tablespoon cherries across the bottom section of the crescent. Add a small amount of chocolate, like above, depending on your preference for chocolate.
Turn in both sides, and roll the crescent. All sides should be closed so nothing can leak out. Place crescents on baking sheet, bake according to package directions.
While crescents are baking, make glaze by adding milk to confectioners sugar. You can also use water instead of the milk.
Mix together until glaze is smooth.
Remove crescents from oven, let them cool. Drizzle with glaze.  
Let glaze set up. 
 



I tried to keep this to 15 minutes, but it may go over a little. You could use canned cherries and it would be quicker.  

Thank you for dropping by today! Enjoy!

Creamsicle Doughnuts / #TasteCreations

This month we are all about Doughnuts at #TasteCreations, so I made some Creamsicle Doughnuts I would love to share with you! Would you do just about anything for a doughnut? I think a lot of people would! I lived in Las Vegas when the first Krispy Kreme opened in the city. Everyone was excited! The television news talked about it, it was in all the papers, and the lines were out the door everyday for at least a week. It seemed everyone had a story about waiting in line for the delectable doughnut! It was craziness, and everyone was talking doughnuts! Fun and a little nutty at the same time!
Well, these doughnuts are very tasty and easy to make, but I'm not sure they will get that much press! But, then again, you won't have to wait in line to get them! Even though they are worth it!
Creamsicle Doughnuts

(makes 15-17 doughnuts)
(printable recipe at end of blog)
 2 cups Cake Flour
3/4 cup Sugar
2 teaspoon Baking Powder
3/4 cup Buttermilk
2 Eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoon Butter, melted
1 teaspoon Orange Extract
2 teaspoon Orange Zest
1/8 cup fresh squeezed Orange Juice from zested Orange
Orange Sprinkles

Glaze 
2 cups Powdered Sugar 
4-5 tablespoon Light Whipping Cream

Preheat oven to 350° F

Place the cake flour, sugar and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Add the buttermilk, eggs, and butter. Mix together. Add the extract, zest and juice. Mix together.
Grease a doughnut pan.Fill each doughnut cavity with batter, about 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 6 1/2 -7 minutes. Remove from oven. Take a toothpick around the edges of the pan to loosen the doughnut a little. Let cool for 2 minutes, then remove from pan and cool.
Place all doughnut on a baking sheet, or something similar. This is where they will be iced.
Make the glaze by mixing together the powdered sugar and cream. Add the cream a tablespoon at a time until the glaze is thick but pourable.
Pour the glaze into a small bowl. Drop each doughnut onto the glaze, then lift off, let drip a little, and set back on tray.
Decorate doughnuts with orange sprinkles or jimmies, and enjoy!

Red, White and Blue Marshmallow Lollipops / #15 Minute Friday


Today I have some quick and easy Red, White, and Blue Marshmallow Lollipops to share with you! There is absolutely nothing difficult about these fun holiday lollipops, and everyone will love how cute and festive they are!
 Red, White and Blue Marshmallow Lollipops
(scroll down for printable recipe)
(makes 6)

6 large Marshmallows
1 Cocktail pick for each lollipop
Red Frosting Tube
Blue Frosting Tube
2 Decorating Tips (Wilton #3)
Patriotic Nonpareils or sprinkles
Candy Stars

Here are the marshmallow squares and a pick for each one.
 Attach the decorating tips to each tube of icing.
Use  a rolling pin to flatten the marshmallow. You will have to roll several times on each side. Place the star on the marshmallow to make sure it fits. If not, roll again. Place the rolling pin on the cookie cutter and roll back and forth. Doing this will help you cut the marshmallow with a clean cut.

Pour the sprinkle into a small bowl. Dip the cut edges of the marshmallow into the sprinkles. The cut edges are sticky and the sprinkles will adhere nicely. Add a cocktail pick to each star.
 
Start adding 1 color of frosting squiggles to each star. Then add the second color.
Add the nonpareils or sprinkles, and some stars. Place on a tray and cover with plastic until ready to serve!

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
