I made these and they were a HIT with everyone who tried them. They were easy but time consuming. So make sure you have plenty of time to devote to baking if you plan to do it. Oh, and make sure you’re ready to exercise twice as much to burn off the massive calories! Get the recipe over here: http://www.bakerella.com/red-velvet-cake-balls/
I love the German roasted nuts they sell at the mall in Greenwood but we go out that way so rarely these days that I haven’t had my fix in a while. Two years ago I tried to duplicate it but could not figure it out. I tried no fewer than three different recipes but none were crunchy. THIS recipe, however is! It’s almost perfect!
So head on over to the Bavarian Candied Almonds recipe and try it for yourself.
Ages ago my in-house editor asked me figure out how to make him banana pudding like they have at Ryan’s Steak House. I looked up a few recipes, saw that they required quite a few ingredients we didn’t have beyond banana and then put the request on the back burner. So when he was forced to work the entire weekend — the first weekend following his momentous graduation from college (it only took a decade or so) — I knew I had to do SOMETHING to get him through the 12 days on. So I grabbed this recipe for banana pudding and headed to Teh Walmart to brave the back to school crowds. Even though I screwed up on it a tiny bit, he was in heaven and declared that he could never eat a store bought banana cream pie again (even though I didn’t make a pie?). Anyhow, this recipe comes courtesy of All Recipes (as does the image because my camera sucks). It’s not hard at all so if you’re a fan of the banana goop they have at buffet restaurants you owe it to yourself to try this one instead. You’ll never eat their stuff again.
