Mardi Gras King Cake Recipe with Crescent Rolls!

mardi-gras-king-cake-iced

I’ve posted my favorite King Cake Recipe before – but I actually remembered to take pictures when I made it again for Mardi Gras this week ;)  This King Cake recipe is different than the traditional version in that you don’t make a yeasty bread from scratch – but instead use of a can of crescent rolls for the crust.

With a delicious cream cheese, cinnamon, brown sugar and nut filling – it resembles a decadent coffee cake and would be wonderful with a strong cup of coffee!  And don’t forget to hide the baby inside….

Here’s how to make this easy Mardi Gras King Cake recipe.

Chocolate Mint Popcorn Balls on time2saveworkshops.com

I haven’t made popcorn balls in years. When I was given the opportunity to try out a cool new popcorn baller from Good Cook, I immediately said yes as I knew my kids would enjoy helping me. Also, I have learned that I can incorporate lessons on fractions and measurements when we cook together.

These were so easy to make. I started with homemade microwave popcorn, then found an easy 4 ingredient recipe for the yummy sweet “sticky” part of the recipe.

Browned Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies Recipe

I have never met a chocolate chip cookie I didn’t like.  But I’m telling you – in 32 years, I have never ever had a chocolate chip cookie this good.  Ever.  My friend Caitie made these for us on a recent visit down to Florida, and if I had been dieting to fit into my bathing suit before I got there, I decided to forget it when she put a plate of these in front of me.  They were almost worth me having muffin top in my beach photos.

Caitie used to work at a cup-cakery, so she knows her way around some sugar and butter, let me tell you.  She got this recipe from Cooks Illustrated, and altered it just a bit. These cookies are really chubby, moist, and they have that certain “heft” you want to feel in your hand when you pick it up off the plate.  And definitely go for the chunks vs. chips if you have the luxury.  The chocolate chunks can hold their own in these dense, nutty flavored cookies.  Chocolate chips would just get lost in there.
