Easy party treats
I have been made aware that some persons have Miss SVG viewing parties, as they back their favourite contestant. To help with that cause, try these easy to do and very delicious recipes.
You will need:
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 1/2 cups buttermilk (regular milk works too)
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp honey
1 (10 count) package hot dogs
10 wooden skewers or chopsticks
2 quarts oil for frying
In a medium or large pot, add the oil. Turn heat to medium and heat oil. In a large bowl, add the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir together. Then add the beaten egg, buttermilk, oil and honey. Stir until combined. (Batter should be a little thicker than pancake batter).
Remove thawed hot dogs from package. Wipe them all dry with a paper towel. Insert one skewer or wooden stick into each hot dog. Pour the batter into a tall drinking glass. Holding by the skewer, take one hot dog and dunk it into the batter, coating all of the hot dog. Slowly remove from batter and let a little excess batter drip back into the cup. Immediately place it into the hot oil, while still holding the stick.
Turn as necessary to brown all sides. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until all sides are a deep golden brown. Remove from hot oil and place on paper towels to drain grease. Repeat with all hot dogs.
You will need:
6 cups popped corn
1/2 cup parched peanuts/almond slivers/walnuts (optional)
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/4 tsp baking soda
Preheat oven to 250Â°F. Spread popcorn in a 15x10x1â pan; sprinkle nuts over popcorn. In large saucepan, combine brown sugar, margarine 2 tbsp water, corn syrup and salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat, boiling for 2 minutes and stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in baking soda; mix well. Pour over popcorn and nuts; toss until coated. Bake for 15 minutes; stir and continue baking for another 15 minutes.
Immediately spread on foil or waxed paper to cool.
Tip – If you want sticky caramel corn, just leave as is without baking.
