Maple Bacon Donuts

I can’t make donuts and leave off my favorite!  I know I’m on a maple bacon kick, but I can’t help it, it is seriously SO good!  I honestly did NOT expect to like the maple bacon craze, but I has me, completely!

Homemade maple and bacon donuts are delicious and easy to make

For me the key is the Candied Bacon, I haven’t liked it with just plain bacon.  Which is probably for the best, it makes it take longer so I don’t make them as often as I crave them…  I think if making the candied bacon went faster I might just eat these every day!

Start out by using this homemade donut dough recipe.

When it says to roll the dough out to 1/2 an inch roll it out to 1/4 of an inch instead.  And rather than using a donut cutter use a round cookie cutter or a glass.  I went with 3 1/2 inch circles.

Next brush milk over half of the circles. Then add the chopped candied bacon.

Then place the other half of the circles on top, press down and pinching the edges around the circle. This will spread out the circles a bit.

Then take the same cutter or glass and recut the donut, this will totally seal the edges so you won’t have to worry about the insides coming out when your frying the donuts!

Now go back to the instructions, let them proof and then fry them.

Now your ready for the glaze, pour it into a wide bowl. Press the donut into the glaze, twist, then life and let it drip off.  And while the glaze is still warm cover the top with more chopped candied bacon.

Kermit and Constantine Cake #MuppetsMostWanted

kermit-constantine-cake

This is a sponsored posts, all opinions are 100% my own I love the Muppets, I always have, I own EVERY movie they have made and my kids love watching them too!  The latest movie, Muppets Most Wanted is no exception, it's HILARIOUS!  Mrs. Piggys is, of course, a favorite.  I have always had a thing for pigs, and she's just great, a strong woman who goes after what she wants, and she wants it all.  Gotta love her! But this movie is all about Kermit and his Doppelganger, Constantine, the worlds number 1 criminal!  It's seriously so cute!  My kids have already watched the Blu Ray 4 times since it came in the mail (on sale August 12th, yay)!  And I have found my self singing the songs … Finish reading (let's face it, see more pictures) here...

S’more Ice Cream Recipe

smore-ice-cream-recipe

It's the final day of this years S'more week and I have found yet another new favorite!  I seriously didn't even want to share this with my kid's cause I knew they'd love it and eat more than I'm willing to share.  I see more of this ice cream in my future, like LOTS more.  I will make ONE change, still looking for the best graham mix in... This is actually a mix of two different ice creams and some mix in's.  By doing it this way you get ribbons of flavor and while it's a bit more work it is worth every second of it.  I will say if you will want to have an ice cream machine that came with 2 freezer bowls, or buy a second bowl. … Finish reading (let's face it, see more pictures) here...

Basic Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe

chocolate-ice-cream-recipe

Everyone needs a good basic chocolate ice cream recipe!  It's great alone but because it's not super rich and heavy there is so much you can do with it, so many mix in's, toppings, etc...  Seriously the possibilities are endless, Rocky Road, Chocolate brownie, S'more and more! Because it's custard based it's super creamy.  I know a lot of people are scared of custard based ice cream, but I promise it's easier than you think.  This is one of those recipes that I always have the ingredients on hand for so if I'm in a sweet mood I can easily get it ready during the day for a sweet treat that night!  And then add whatever candy I have on hand and create something new (or make up some … Finish reading (let's face it, see more pictures) here...

Marshmallow Ice Cream Recipe

toasted-marshmallow-ice-cream

Yup, SERIOUSLY, Marshmallow Ice Cream.  And YES it is as AMAZING as it sounds.  I love making ice cream and my ice cream maker (best birthday gift EVER) has been getting quite the work out this week!  This recipe is a basic vanilla custard ice cream with toasted marshmallows mixed in, easy and tasty.  You'll be SO glad you made it. This Marshmallow ice cream is great plain, but I'm dying to try it with my Hot Fudge... Or maybe with chilled hot chocolate as a float?  Okay, I'm totally inspired and Mmmm, I'm TOTALLY doing that tomorrow!  My husband thought it would be terrible and almost refused to try it, but even he was totally won over my this treat! The flavor all comes from … Finish reading (let's face it, see more pictures) here...

Graham Cracker Crust Recipe

graham-cracker-crust

This is my go to Graham Cracker crust recipe.  For cheesecakes, pies and S'more donut topping.  It's easy and tastes AMAZING.  You can use regular honey graham crackers, cinnamon or chocolate for different flavors. I'm sharing my caramel toffee ice cream pie over at 30 handmade days you should check it out! I also like to use ginger snaps or ground nuts.  As long as the ground "crackers" amount stays the same your good!  But the classic, basic honey graham cracker crust is always a good way to go. You can use a food processor to turn the crackers into crumbs... OR manual labor...  This is a great job when you want to get your frustrations out OR a great job for your kids. … Finish reading (let's face it, see more pictures) here...
