Mini Treats!

by Jen

In honor of my last post about my mini-kitchen, I thought I should share two of my most recent recipe finds that are mini treats!

The first one is from my favorite mini-recipe website, Dessert for Two, and is Salted Almond Brittle. Not only is it a small recipe, but it was super easy! You use the microwave!! It took less than 10 minutes!!! And I just happened to have all the ingredients on hand when I found this recipe. Mom wanted to try it too, so she entertained Thomas for the 10 minutes even though she was “off-duty”… ; )

Verdict? Delicious! Matt gave it the compliment of it being like his grandmothers – which is huge by anyone’s standard. I’m going to try it again with other nuts – I think cashews! And I may chop the nuts up a little, I kept getting pieces with one almond and Matt’s would have like 10… unfair!

The other delicious mini was Mini Chocolate Lava Cakes, which seems like the greatest idea ever – I can eat so many before feeling guilty! I took an idea from Dfor2 and halved the recipe so each of us got 3 and it was the perfect serving size. Of course in the chaos of dinner planning and baby watching I overlooked them a tiny bit and they weren’t so lava-y. No matter, that’s why Blue Bell ice cream and Hershey’s syrup were invented!

I’m so making these again too! As good as they were, I can’t imagine how much better they will be when full of melted chocolate goodness! Mmmmmm….
