Nutella Toast Rolls

image

Ingredients:

– 1 jar of nutella

– rolling pin

– 6 slices of bread (or the amount of nutella rolls you would like, 1 slice of bread makes one roll)

– banana, strawberries, blueberries, or other fruit

– 2 eggs plus 3 tablespoons of water plus 1/4 teaspoon salt

– a couple tablespoons of butter, I recommend 4, then divide it

– 1/4-1/2 cup powdered or caster sugar

– 2 tablespoons cinnamon (optional)

Directions:

1) On a plate, mix powdered sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.

2) In a bowl, combine eggs, water, and salt. Mix good, then set aside.

3) Roll your bread flat  (either white or wheat, both work well) and remove crusts. Spread on about 1 tablespoon of nutella to each slice of bread. Add fruit to the slice of bread, then roll closed. The nutella will help to keep the slice of bread closed. If you are having trouble keeping the roll closed, you can add a little bit of nutella at the closure and that should hold it. In a skillet, heat the butter at medium heat.

4) Once all your rolls have been rolled, (:p that is really fun to say!)  dip them in the egg mixture. Yeah, it is kind of gross to do this part. You can where gloves, or you can use tongs like me. Dip them completely, then, put them in the pan with butter (if the butter is burnt, add some more which clears everything up, that is why you have extra tablespoons of butter instead of one) and cook for about 1 minute on each side, flipping and rolling, or until everything is golden brown. Cool for a couple seconds before proceeding to the next step.

5) Once you cooled your roll, put it on the plate with the powdered sugar/cinnamon mix. Roll it around until it is covered in the mix. The place it on another plate.

6) Repeat to remaining rolls. I find that 2 rolls per person is a good amount since they are sort of small, and plus, even though one is small, 2 fills you up pretty quickly. But, you can have as many as you like.

7) This part is completely optional. So what I did was plate my rolls in a tower, then cut up some remaining fruit and placed it on the outside of my rolls, just to go with it. You can see the picture above for how to plate nicely for ideas. That’s how I plated mine. Sprinkle some powered sugar and cinnamon on the fruit for extra taste. By the way, honey and syrup go really well with the rolls, but again, that part is totally optional.

8) Now for the best part: eating it! Serve and enjoy as a breakfast. Enjoy!!

I had a bake sale! My bake sale goodies included: cake pops, home made Rice Krispies, home made donuts with creme, cookie-muffins,and cupcakes!

Ingredients:

-1 packet of cake mix of any kind

-the ingredients on the back of the cake mix box 

-1 can of vanilla frosting 

– 1 packet of white candy melts or 2 bags of white chocolate 

-25~50 cake pop or lollipop sticks of any size

– sprinkles, food coloring, or any other decorating items you might want to use

– pans and aluminum foil

– SPECIAL: stove or microwave to melt white chocolate or candy melts

Directions:

1) Make your cake according to the instructions on the back of the cake mix box or use any one of your own recipes (see dessert section for my cake recipes). Bake accordingly.

2) Once the cake is done baking, let it cool throughly before the next steps. To do this, cake cuts in your cake anywhere and put it into your refrigerator for 10-15 minutes. It doesn’t matter, we will be rolling into balls and other things later. 🙂

3) Now the cake should be done cooling. Now it’s going to get REALLY MESSY! So I recommend using gloves for this unless you want cakey-hands, which you are always able to wash later!:) In a bowl, crumble your cake. Do this by cutting pieces in your cake and rubbing them against each other, or, you can just straight on crumble with your hands instead of way one  like I did to save time, which works well too. Crumble your entire cake, and try to leave out the crust. If the crust is inside your cake crumble bowl, it will make for harder shaping later. But, if you’re like me, you can eat the crust for a snack! 🙂

4) After crumbling your cake, add 3/4 a can of frosting. Use your hands (using gloves) or a wooden spoon to work the frosting into your crumble. When it’s done, it should look kind of like grainy batter, or, well, it’s hard to explain, but you’ll get the idea!

5) Next, line a pan with aluminum foil or baking/wax paper. Roll your batter-dough-cake crumble mixture into balls about the size of a tablespoon. Place into the freezer for 10 minutes. When it’s about five minutes left, start to melt your chocolate or candy melt.

6) When the cake balls are down freezing, dip a stick just a little bit on the top into your chocolate or melts, and place them into your cake ball. Put back in the freezer for 5 minutes to harden.

7) Once the balls are finished hardening the sticks, it’s time to dip. It’s helps to have melted your chocolate in a deep bowl for this. Take your ball and dip it into the chocolate or candy  melt. Use a spoon to spread the base onto your ball if needed. Make sure the ball is completely covered, then tap of excess. Place on a pan lined with foil to have downwards pops’, or place on a styrofoam block to have upwards pops’ if you know what I mean.  🙂

8) Let the cake pop harden. If you want to add sprinkles, add them while the pop is still wet with your base (chocolate or candy melts). You can add food coloring to extra base when your done and drizzle the pops like me, add sprinkles, or anything else! Have fun, be creative! I did mine for a bake sale with lots of other goodies. If you’re doing them for a sale or event, you can wrap then nicely by getting the “wrappers” and tying it around the pop with ribbon then curling it for a nice touch. A bit confused? Yeah, these instructions were hard to write, and since I haven’t posted for a while, that made it even harder. But if you get it, then these should be as easy as pie (not literally since pie is sort of hard to make :P). Enjoy with friends or family! Like, comment, and share with friends if you enjoyed!
