1. Crispy Cinnamon Sugar Biscuit Bites
If you’re looking for a less-ingredient breakfast, after-school snack, or dessert, we’ve got you covered with mini donuts dipped in cinnamon sugar. The ingredients include biscuit dough, cinnamon sugar, salted butter, and sugar. With every bite, you will feel the fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth charm of the crunchy biscuit.
The best part is that you don’t need to make the dough batter from scratch, just grab a can of canned biscuit dough, and voila, you have perfect bite-sized cinnamon rolls for everyone to devour!
2. No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Mousse
You can never go wrong with cheesecake. This No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Mousse has layers of cookies or cracker crumbs, deliquesced strawberries, and a rich cheesecake filling.
You can make it for a potluck, picnic, or someone you care about. It is an easy-to-carry dish, as it can be assembled in whatever container you want, but we suggest short drinking classes, large wine glasses, or ramekins.
3. Linzer Cookies
Amidst a batch of delightful gingerbread and cherry pecan cookies, the nutty-flavored linzer cookies take the spotlight. Yes, these cookies are filled with jam and butter with a cutout design on top.
The almond extract and grounded almonds create a nutty shortbread texture and flavor, and you can top it with powdered sugar and fill it with raspberry and apricot jam.
But the fun part is the lattice design on top that creates a glimmering stained-window glass effect.
To create the best cutout shapes on linzer cookies, use a fluted-edge cookie cutter and make classic shapes, such as hearts, circles, flowers, stars, snowflakes, etc.
As with other sandwich cookies, roll the dough thinly (no thicker than 1/8 inch), or the jam-to-cookie ratio will be wrong, and the stacked cookies will be too thick. A baker’s tip for extra crispy, crunch linzer cookies is to bake them longer!
4. Lemon Blueberry Muffins
What could be a better combo if you enjoy the tart flavor of lemon in your sweets than lemon blueberry muffins? These light and fluffy blueberry muffins have a creamy butter taste, soft texture, and a burst of million flavors in every mouthful.
These cupcakes are incomplete without a finishing touch of lemony-brown sugar crumb topping. Their light and fruity flavors make it perfect for a breakfast treat or evening tea-time snack. Who wouldn’t want cupcakes with mouthwatering blueberries and fresh tangy flavor?
For the crumb topping, you can make it sugary, lemony, and sweet. Make a mixture of butter, brown sugar, flour, and lemon zest to liven up your guests’ taste buds.
5. Cookie Dough Bites
At some point, everyone might have munched up the classic cookie dough even before it made its way to the oven. With edible cookie dough bites, you don’t have to bake! You can just get to the good part of rolling it into balls and dipping it into chocolate to make it a one-bite snack.
You can either dip the cookie dough bites straight into chocolate or use a mold. Sure, the dipping method may be faster, but the mold method will convince everyone that you picked your treats from a fancy bakery.
It is not entirely a cookie dough recipe since the classic recipe contains raw eggs contaminated with E.Coli, giving you stomach cramps and diarrhea. But these cookie dough bites are edible, and there are many ways to ensure they’re safe to consume.
6. Chocolate-Dipped Pretzel Rods
These crunchy, salty pretzel rods are covered in decadent milk chocolate, combining the contrasting flavors of sweet and salty. Let your creativity run wild by adding sprinkles, crushed mint, candy canes, or chopped nuts.
These pretzel rods are perfect for special occasions or as homemade gifts for friends and family and can be kept in airtight containers for weeks.
Though you can use any type of chocolate, milk, dark and white chocolates are great choices for various rich, decadent chocolate flavors.
