Fun Food Experiments For The Holidays
In the following weeks, friends and family will be stopping by your home for the holidays and they will be bringing over typical Christmas fare. While there is some sort of comfort in routine, having the same five dishes year after year can be a bit disheartening. If you are a parent of someone taking online cooking classes, you’ll know that he or she likes variety. Try some of these dishes to spice up the holidays:
Oreo Cookie Deep Fried Ice Cream
What you’ll need:
- 2 pints of your favorite ice cream
- 1 bag of Oreos
- 2 cups of Bisquik
- 2 eggs
Prepare the egg wash by whisking the two eggs. Don’t mix too well. Then move on to the Oreo crumbs. Break apart the Oreos and remove the cream filling. You don’t have to throw the filling away. Instead, put it aside to blend with the ice cream filling later. Before you start rolling ice cream balls, keep the pints in the freezer for an extra 30 minutes to make sure they are nice and hard. Once you take them out, beginning adding the extra Oreo filling to the ice cream. Form the balls and dip them in the egg wash. Quickly roll the spheres in the Oreo crumb mix and then place them back in the freezer. After the initial crumb layer hardens, which takes about 10 minutes, take them out for another round of egg wash and Oreo crumbs. Put the balls in the freezer for a second time, leaving them in there for about 30 minutes.
You can now start the deep frying process. After heating the oil to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, dip the balls into the oil for approximately 10 seconds. Let them cool for a minute or so and they are ready to eat.
Nutella Stuffed Pancake French Toast
You can use this recipe for the breakfast after Christmas.
What you’ll need:
- 1 loaf of bread (not sliced)
- 1 box of quick pancake mix
Heat your skillet to a medium temperature and add some butter to it. Slice the loaf of bread into pieces that are approximately 1-inch thick. Stand a slice upright. Slice open a pocket in the piece of bread and fill it with Nutella. Dip the slice in your pancake batter and place the toast on the skillet. If you’ve made thick batter, you can flip over the toast after a minute to lather on another layer of batter.
