First up, the Fat Tuesday fest of little desserts.
This is a Donut Muffin. These are super simple and pretty tasty. I covered mine in cinnamon sugar, but I'm thinking you could also roll them in powdered sugar, or cover them in a chocolate glaze. I'm planning on trying that sometime soon and will post the recipe and results then.
6 T evaporated milk
3 cups flaked coconut
1 egg, beaten
Preheat oven to 375.
Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl. Shape by hand into small balls. Place on a greased baking sheet sprinkled with flour.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool and then dip bottoms in chocolate.
These next goodies where kind of made up on the fly. I had come across a recipe for a Chocolate Ganache Cherry Macaroon Tart, and took parts of it to come up with these Chocolate Cherry Tarts. They were nice, but I don't think they were any one's favorites. Back to the drawing board for these guys.
If your teeth aren't hurting yet from all the sugar, I have one more treat to share with you. For Samantha's school Valentine's Day party, I made sugar cookies for all the kids.
