Pinterest – Love that place. Let me say right off, if I’m not following your boards, holler at me. The more people you follow there, the more you’ll see and learn about. (Seriously, leave your link below.)
Instead of just “pinning” and never actually doing, I’ve been working putting my Pinterest account to work.
For years I have dipped Nutter Butter Cookies in white chocolate or almond bark. Something about this combination is very irresistible. Any time they are a simple treat, but at Halloween, they can be ghosts. At Christmas, they can be snowmen (cut a miniature Reese’s Cup in half for the hat.) Great fun for the kids to make and decorate.
Here is what I came up with:
When I was experimenting on some recipes for my son’s wedding shower, I came across the above dessert. I laughed and thought why not and why had I not thought of that earlier? My only concern was the cake drying out. My nephew and I started experimenting.
Small cookie cutter any design (we used a tiny heart)
Sara Lee Frozen Pound Cake
White Chocolate or Almond Bark – melted**
We sliced the thawed cake an 1 ½ thick and then took our little cookie cutters and cut out as many heart shapes as we could out of each piece, placing them on wax paper.
We melted our Chocolate in the tray that it comes in just as directed on the package and using a fork, we gently put the hearts in the chocolate. We were careful to get it completely covered and then placed on wax paper to harden. We topped them off with the sprinkles.
They were absolutely delicious! He said they reminded him of Little Debbie Zebra Cakes.
Our wedding shower was going to be big (we were expecting 50-60 guests,) so I had wondered if they would be ok overnight, in case I needed to make them a day ahead. I literally left these on the wax paper overnight, covered them up and the next day they were still delicious! Storing them in an air tight container will be perfect for them. I wouldn’t suggest refrigerating them as it can dry out the cake.
**use this type of chocolate for other things like pretzels, Ritz Crackers with peanut butter in the middle, etc. lots of uses! THINK Homemade Gifts!**
I believe this is a PinWin but feel free to let me know your thoughts.
