Mardi Gras!

Is soo soon! And I feel like since I have major slacked on Valentine's day I need to make up for it!
Nothing too major but who doesn't love beignets?!
Planning on making some of the cheater version with some praline sauce, I'm using this recipe from Family.com


Ingredients
    1 cup packed light brown sugar 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter 1/2 cup chopped pecans 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Directions
  1. In a heavy bottomed sauce pan combine butter and brown sugar over medium-high heat. Stir until thick and sugar begins to dissolve.
  2. Add evaporated milk and stir well. Heat until bubbling. Continue to cook and stir for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and add pecans and vanilla. Stir well and let cool for 10 minutes or until slightly thickened before serving.

The kids loved them last year!

If the cheater version isn't for you, I've seen the Cafe du Monde mix at Cost Plus!

Another option would be to make these Mini King Cakes from Pillsbury!

  1. What is your cheater version of beignets? World market has a box mix that is pretty good. I love to make vanilla,raspberry and chocolate sauces to dip them in..... Oh so tasty!

  4. This looks so decadent, what are you using as the beignets, is it puff pastry? Will definitely be trying your sauce, yum!
