St. Patrick’s Day is only a couple weeks away, and I don’t know about you but I think it’s such a fun holiday to celebrate!  This year, I’ve looked up different festive recipes and so many of them make the use of Lucky Charms.  They’re so creative and yummy!  Here are a few Lucky Charms snacks and treats that make celebrating St. Patty’s Day ten times better.

  • Lucky Charms Dirt Cake.  Chelsea Crockett - Lucky Charms CupcakeIf you’ve had dirt cake, then you know just how good it is.  All you need to make is vanilla pudding and add food coloring to make it green.  Then, in a large glass bowl, fill in a layer of pudding, whip cream, then lucky charms… and repeat! It looks and tastes great!
  • Lucky Charms Cupcakes.  This recipe is extremely simple!  Just make a fresh batch of cupcakes, ice them, and finish them off with some Lucky Charms like the picture on the right!  You can make different designs out of all the different marshmallows!
  • Green Lucky Charms Pancakes.  When I was little, my mom would always make me a full green breakfast for St. Patrick’s Day.  If you want green pancakes, put food coloring in the batter.  Add some whip cream to the top followed by a sprinkle of Lucky Charms!  They’re perfect for the occasion! 🙂

Which one are you going to try out for yourself?  Feel free to let me know in the comments below! 🙂

Mango pancakes? This phrase combines two of my favorite foods in the world! Start off your day right by making these sweet treats for breakfast.

Ingredients:

  • 3 mangosdownload (2)
  • 4 tbsp icing sugar
  • 300 ml thickened cream

For the pancakes:

  • 6 eggs
  • 4 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil

For the pancake batter, whisk the eggs and sugar together and then add the milk in. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour and salt and then whisk it into the egg and milk mixture gradually. Add in the vanilla and oil, then stir. Remove any lumps from the mixture and allow it to stand for 30 minutes at room temp. It will be watery. Make your pancakes in whatever pan you usually use, and then cover them with plastic wrap and store them in the fridge.

Whip the cream and the powdered sugar until it is firm. Peel the mangos, and then slice them thick. Spoon some cream onto the top of the pancakes and then top them with two slices of mango. Cover the mango with a bit more cream and then roll the pancake up. Let them chill in the fridge for a few minutes and then gobble them up!

Wow, my tummy is rumbling just typing this recipe! Do you think they sound yummy?

 

XOXO, Chels

Pancakes are one of my favorite meals to have for breakfast… and what’s better than being a little creative and making them cake batter red velvet pancakes? Since I spend a lot of time on Pinterest, I thought I’d share this delicious recipe I found. Not only is the recipe for the pancakes, but for a cream cheese drizzle as well! Yum!

Chelsea Crockett - PancakesFirst, you need your ingredients: 2 cups of red velvet cake mix, 1 ¼ cup of milk/water, 1 egg, ½ cup of flour, 4 ounces of cream cheese, ½ cup of powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, and 2 tablespoons of milk.

Second, heat your pan or skillet at medium heat. Take a large bowl and whisk the egg and milk together. Then, add in the red velvet cake mix, milk, egg, and flour. Mix together until the batter is completely fluffy. After that, you’re ready to go! Whether you want mini pancakes or big ones, grease the pan with butter or oil before pouring on the batter. Then pour the batter on the pan and wait till a bubble appears to flip. Each side should cook for about a minute. Once the pancakes are done, you’re ready to make the cream cheese drizzle!

This part is simple. Take a smaller bowl and mix together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk. Once all ingredients are fully mixed together, pour the drizzle on top of your pancakes. How delicious does that sound :)?

Enjoy! – Chelsea

Saint Patty’s day is fast approaching (can you believe it is almost MARCH already?!) so I thought I would put a little gold in your recipe pot. I found an amazing St. Patty’s day breakfast recipe on BettyCrocker.com that is to die for. What is it? Lucky charms pancakes, of course!!

Ingredients:

–          Bisquick pancake mixpancakes

–          Lucky Charms cereal

–          Green food coloring

In a large bowl, whisk Bisquick mix, milk, vanilla and eggs just until blended. Add some green food coloring and whisk again. Now for the yummy part! Add 1/2 cup marshmallows from Lucky Charms cereal and mix. Pop a few in your mouth if you dare! For each pancake, pour a little less than 1/4 cup batter onto a hot griddle. Cook each about 3 minutes or until bubbles form on top and the edges are dry. Flip them and then cook until the other side is golden brown.

Top them with some whipped cream and Lucky Charms marshmallows and you are all set! As the Lucky Charms Leprechaun would say, “They’re magically delicious!”

XOXO, Chels

Falls Favorite Duos: Caramel and Apples

Hi Insiders,             Oh the sweet smell of fall!  Tis the season for bonfires, chilly air, cozy clothes, friends, and of course, caramel apples.  Ever since I can remember, caramel…

Hi Insiders,

            Oh the sweet smell of fall!  Tis the season for bonfires, chilly air, cozy clothes, friends, and of course, caramel apples.  Ever since I can remember, caramel apples have been my go-to fall snack.  I crave them every fall!  Lucky for you, I’ve got some unique caramel apple recipes for you to try.  If you love caramel apples, then you’ll be drooling over these desserts!

  • Caramel Apple Bites:  All you’ll need are apples, melting caramels, your favorite toppings, toothpicks, and a melon scooper.  Start by placing parchment paperChelsea Crockett- caramel apple bites on a plate or baking sheet to get ready for the final outcome.  Next, wash your apples and dry them off.  Using the scooper, scoop out little balls and place them in a bowl.  Place the melting caramels in another bowl and microwave for about a minute.  Using a toothpick, dip each apple bite into the caramel and then roll it in your favorite topping (if you want).  Place them on the sheet and put it in the refrigerator.  Enjoy!
  • Caramel Apple Ice Cream Parfait:  This one is really simple!  All you need is vanilla ice cream, apple preserves, caramel, and graham crackers or cinnamon granola.  Place a scoop of ice cream in a tall glass or bowl.  Next, layer the ice cream with the apples, caramel, and crushed graham cracker or cinnamon granola.  Repeat until the glass or bowl is full.   
  • Mini Caramel Apple Pancakes:  Start by whipping up your favorite pancake batter, mixing in a pinch of brown sugar.  Next, Slice your apple down the middle and take out the core.  Cut thin slices of the apple so you have apple rings.  Then, dip each apple ring in the pancake batter and place them on the skillet.  Cook them as if they were regular pancakes.  Once done, drizzle with caramel (you can use the ice cream topping for this) and enjoy.  It’s like dessert for breakfast!

I hope you’ll enjoy these recipes.  I know I sure have!

Love,

            Chelsea
