These mingle-friendly Caramel Straws and a couple of crumbs..won’t get in the way of drink holding, Facebooking, Tweeting or even Texting! You know..all those things we like to do when we’re out “socializing”….LOL!
And..you’ll never believe how quick & simple it is to keep a crowd of sassy snacker’s happy. Each crispy, light and sweet Straw has a warm, sticky & slightly chewy vein of Caramel running through it! And then they’re all dusted with a hint of Salt and Cinnamon, just to really drive home those flavors! Ohhh yeah!
Serve up a quick batch of these the next time you need a people pleasing party favorite, a hot cup of coffee topper, OR..simply as an awesome fun, kid friendly dessert/snack
in front of the TV at the table!
You’ll L.O.V.E. them!
What you’ll need for a huge pile of Straws:
1 Box of frozen Puff Pastry Sheets (2 sheets per box)
Some Caramel Sauce (about a cup..or so)..store bought OR homemade is fine!
1 tsp. Kosher Salt..or to taste!
2 tbsp. Cinnamon/Sugar mix
Roll out each thawed pastry sheet so they’re the same size….(use a sprinkling of flour if needed)
On one of the sheets, pour about 1 cup of the Caramel Sauce..
Brush that thick Caramel evenly onto the pastry sheet…
Then top it with the other Pastry Sheet!
Slice the sheets into about 1/4″ slices..
Take two strips and start-a-twistin’ them together!
Lay each twisted straw onto a parchment lined baking sheet and brush them with the egg-wash (one beaten egg and a splash of water)….
Now for the best part..the Salty Cinnamon/Sugar Sprinkle!
Combine the Salt & Cinnamon/Sugar, and lightly top the straws! As good as the Caramel Pastry is, it’s really the salt that makes these amazing!
Bake them at 350 for about 12-15 minutes, until they’re golden and puffed!
Check out the bottoms..that’s where the $ bites are!
Serve ‘em up warm, flaky, gooey and chewy! ~Enjoy!
