I love anything that is served in a creative way...and aren't these just adorable
2 oz Vanilla Vodka
2 oz Chilled Chai Tea
1 1/2 oz Orange Liqueur
Combine the Vodka, Tea, and Orange Liqueur in a cocktail shaker with ice.
Donut Bread Pudding with Espresso Whipped Cream
I have been making some version of this recipe for ages.
Who needs a plain old Krispy Kreme when you can have this?
1 1/2 dozen glazed doughnuts, cut into sixths
1 quart heavy cream
2 cups milk
10 large egg yolks
2 large whole eggs
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup brewed espresso, chilled
Bread Pudding has to be my favorite "to go" favor!
Chocolate Covered Bacon Caramel Popcorn
Whether you want to serve it tableside or package it in a cute bag to take home...this is just SINFUL and yes the bacon is AMAZING!
I have eaten gelato in I think about 20 countries and I can assure you that Sugarland on Franklin Street in Chapel Hill has some of the best. My Fall favorites...Pecan Pie and Mexican Chocolate! Mmmmm.
It is so much fun to pass these at a party.
A true crowd pleaser!
Speaking of Sugarland...they host a couple more of my favorites..
What a great way to keep your guests going! They can be served with or without alcohol.
The flavor combinations are endless.
My Ulimate Favor Pick
If you have never had a french macaroon you just don't know what you are missing.
I once stood in line in for two hours in the freezing cold just so I could have a few from my favorite pastry shop in Paris...Laduree....or as I like to refer to it...heaven on earth.
I didn't realize how crazy I was about these little treasures until I stepped off of the tour bus with a bag of them and tripped. With my face quickly approaching the ground all I could think was..oh no...my macaroons are going to be crushed. I did the only thing I could think of. I threw the bag in the air and screamed for my Dad to catch it. They survived...and I limped back to the hotel room with a sprained knee and enjoyed every single morsel of those goodies.
Miel Bon Bons in the Historic Car Hill Mall in Carrboro, North Carolina carries these dainty French creme filled sandwiches.
In the spirit of Autumn, Miel Bon Bons has just added a
Cinnamon Macaroon with a Hazelnut Praline Creme to its menu.
Package them in boxes or serve them in a champagne glass.
These are especially adorable for wedding and baby showers.
Enjoy the Fall season!
All of these items and so many more are available for your events at The Carolina Inn
I think I'll head to Sugarland before the big game for my gelato and a cupake.
Once the sugar rush kicks in I should be able to properly cheer for UNC!
Do Me A Favor...Try some of these goodies!
