Cherry Almond Croissant Bread Pudding with Fireball Whiskey Glaze

Prep Time: 25 minutes / Cook Time: 55 minutes / Servings: 8

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 6 medium size, premium quality croissants

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste

  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract

  • 3 large eggs

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 cup heavy cream

  • 1/2 cup low-fat (2%) milk

  • 2 cups tart cherries in light syrup, drained 

         (I used Morello cherries)

  • 1/2 cup raw, unsalted almond slivers

  • 2 ounces Fireball Whiskey

  • 14 ounces can of sweetened condensed milk


Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 375. Grease the inside of a 10"x2" cast iron skillet with butter and set aside.

  2. MAKE THE CUSTARD: Using a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, mix together the eggs and the sugar on medium-high speed until pale yellow and frothy, about 2 minutes. Turn the mixer off and set aside.  In a small saucepan combine the milk, cream, vanilla bean paste and the almond extract. Stir continuously to prevent a skin from forming and bring the temperature to about 170 degrees, or until it begins to bubble around the sides. Turn the stand mixer on low speed and very slowly pour the warm cream mixture into the egg mixture until well combined. Pour the combined custard mixture through a fine mesh strainer back into the saucepan and set aside until ready to bake.

  3. PREPARE THE CROISSANT MIXTURE: In a large mixing bowl, break the croissants up into small pieces. Add the cherries and the almond slivers and toss everything together. Transfer the croissant mixture to the buttered cast iron skillet

  4. COMBINE AND BAKE:  Pour the custard mixture evenly over the croissant mixture in the cast iron skillet. Press down a bit so all the pieces of croissant get soaked. Place the skillet on a cookie sheet in the center of the oven and bake at 375 degrees, uncovered for 20 minutes. Then, place a foil tent over the top of the skillet and continue to bake for another 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before serving.

  5. PREPARE THE GLAZE: In a small saucepan, heat the condensed milk on medium heat. Stir in the whiskey until warm and combined.

  6. PLATE AND SERVE:Place a large spoonful (about 1/2 cup) of the bread pudding on a small serving dish. Drizzle with the warm whiskey glaze and serve immediately.

Peanut Butter S'mores Shooters  

 Prep time: 30 minutues / Cook time: 5 minutes / Servings: 8


Ingredients: 

  • 4 ounce(s) of cream cheese

  • 12 graham cracker sheets (48 individual crackers)

  • 10 ounce(s) of bag of peatnut butter morsels

  • 7 ounce(s) of jar marshmallow fluff

  • 1/2 cup(s) of milk

  • 1/2 cup(s) of chocolate syrup


Steps:

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine peanut butter morsels, milk and cream cheese. Cook on medium heat and stir until combined and melted, about 5 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a glass mixing bowl and place in the freezer to set for about 10 minutes. Remove and mix with electric mixer until a light, fluffy peanut butter creme is created, about 2 minutes. Set aside.

  2. Place the graham crackers in a plastic, sealable bag. Seal the bag and break up the crackers with your hands, creating different size small chunks and crumbs. Transfer to a separate mixing bowl and add the chocolate syrup. Mix well until combined.

  3. Using 2oz. shot glasses, spoon about 1 tbsp. of the graham cracker mixture into the bottom of each of the shot glasses. Follow with 1 tbsp. of the peanut butter creme, then 1 tbsp. of the marshmallow fluff. Finish with another 1 tbsp. of the graham cracker mixture.

  4. Note: If using tall, narrow shot glasses, fill two separate, small plastic bags with the peanut butter and marshmallow creme, snip off a corner and pipe the cremes into the shot glasses. Serve with long neck teaspoons.

The Kahlua Pig Chocolate Cake

Prep Time: 45 minutes / Cook Time: 45 minutes / Servings: 8-10

Ingredients: 

  • 6egg yolks, plus four egg whites

  • 1tablespoon unsalted butter

  • 1-2/3cups white granulated sugar, divided

  • 3/4cup unsweetened cocoa powder, divided

  • 3cups heavy whipping cream, divided

  • 3ounces coffee flavored liqueur, (such as Kahlua)

  • 12ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • 12ounces thick cut bacon, chopped

  • 1/2cup salted macadamia nuts, chopped

  • edible tropical flowers for garnish


Steps:

  1. FOR THE CAKE: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Use the butter to grease the bottom and sides of an 8" wide by 3" deep spring-form cake pan. Use a stand mixer with the whisk attachment to to whip the egg whites on medium speed for about 2 minutes, until they become frothy. Slowly add 2/3 cup of sugar and increase the mixing speed to medium-high. Whip for an additional 2-3 minutes, until the mixture is twice its size. Turn off the mixer and add the egg yolks one at a time, mixing in between only enough to incorporate each egg yolk. Remove the bowl from the mixer and fold 1/2 cup of cocoa powder in with a rubber spatula. Transfer the batter to the buttered cake pan and bake at 325 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until an inserted butter knife comes out clean. Remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool before removing from the pan.

  2. MAKE THE CHOCOLATE CREAM: Using an electric or stand mixer with the whisk attachment, combine 2 cups heavy whipping cream and 1/4 cup cocoa powder. Add the coffee liqueur and whip on high speed until very stiff peaks form. Refrigerate until ready to use.

  3. MAKE THE BACON MACADAMIA BRITTLE: In a large skillet, cook the chopped bacon for 7-10 minutes on medium heat until crispy, stirring occasionally. Strain the bacon with a slotted spoon and transfer it to a large bowl that's been lined with a paper towel. Set aside. Next, line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Spread the macadamia nuts out on the cookie sheet. Evenly sprinkle the cooked bacon in with the macadamia nuts. Set aside. In a small saucepan, melt 1 cup sugar until it is a light amber in color, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. When the sugar is melted, pour it evenly over the bacon and macadamia nuts. It's okay if some of the nuts/bacon aren't coated in the syrup, this will make for lots of different sweet & salty bites! Refrigerate until the sugar hardens and forms the brittle, about 10 minutes. Remove the mixture from the refrigerator and crush it with a kitchen mallet, making small, bite size pieces. Set the mixture aside until ready to serve.

  4. MAKE THE CHOCOLATE GANACHE: In a small saucepan, combine the remaining 1 cup of heavy whipping cream and the chocolate chips. Stir on medium heat for about 5 minutes, until the mixture is thick, smooth, combined and melted. Remove from the heat and place a sheet of plastic wrap over the top of the ganache to prevent skin from forming on the top. Allow it to cool until ready to use.

  5. ASSEMBLE THE CAKE: Remove the cake from the pan and place it upside down on a serving dish, so the flat, even, bottom of the cake becomes the top layer. Slice the cake through the center horizontally, creating two, 1.5" layers. Set the top layer aside and coat the bottom layer with the Chocolate Cream, creating a 1.5" center filling. Place the top layer of the cake on top of the cream. Pour the ganache slowly on top of the cake, until it coats the top completely and runs a bit over the sides. Use the remaining chocolate ganache to spoon around the sides of the cake to coat it completely. Use handfuls of the crushed Bacon Macadamia Brittle to coat the sides of the cake and stick to the chocolate ganache. Sweep away the extra brittle with your hands and use a wet paper towel to clean any remaining spilled chocolate ganache from the serving dish. Garnish with the edible tropical flowers and refrigerate until ready to serve.
