Report this ad

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a nonstick

popover pan

Scoop mixture into popover pan and press to the bottom and sides, making sure to leave a hole in the middle for the milk to go later. You only need the sides and bottom to be about ¼ inch thick. It's hard to get it much thinner.

Place a cork wrapped in foil inside to make room for the liquor later…

Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes until cookies get a golden brown kiss.

Carefully remove the cookies from the popover pan. This can be done by placing a large cutting board or pan over the popover sheet and flipping it over. Gently tap the bottoms of the popover cups to loosen. Let cool completely.

Carefully melt the remaining 1 cup of chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl by microwaving for 15 seconds at a time, removing and stirring, until chocolate is melted.

Coat the holes in the cookie cups with the chocolate. Drizzle some in and swirl, or if your chocolate is on the thicker side just give it a good smearing.

Refrigerate until chocolate is set.

Important Information !!!!! 

TSA Alcoholic Beverages Regulation 

Travelers may now carry through security checkpoints travel-size toiletries (3 ounces or less) that fit comfortably in ONE, QUART-SIZE, clear plastic, zip-top bag. 

*According to the FAA’s Federal Aviation Regulations, Sec. 121.575, “no person may drink any alcoholic beverage aboard an aircraft unless the certificate holder operating the aircraft has served that beverage to him.” In other words, you can’t drink it unless a flight attendant serves it to you. 

You could be fined anywhere from $3,000-$5,000for violating federal law if you decide to start mixing up your own cocktails, so it might be a good idea to just pay for your own drinks. Better yet, ask the flight attendant to make it for you!

Friday, July 1, 2011 - Shotsicles (Booze-sicles) 

Collect your favorite juices: pineapple, guava, raspberry, acai, kiwi, mango, peach, the list goes on. 

Pick up some flavored alcohol like Bacardi rums in coconut, watermelon, lemon, raspberry or Zone flavored vodkas: banana, melon, peach, lemon and tangerine. 

Mix the juices with the alcohol using this ratio: 

3 cups of juice 

2 oz. of alcohol 

(You don't want to make them much stronger because the alcohol will not freeze.) 

For extra credit add frozen chunks of fruit like mango, banana and raspberry. You can even add herbs like chopped mint or basil. 

Pour the juice and alcohol mixture into the popsicle molds and freeze. 

 

This drink was a split decision. Dean & Rog both SPIT, but Producer Mark and Suzi said SWALLOW.
