I love to buy appliances that make my life easier, but I don’t like to buy appliances that only have one purpose, like a cake pop maker. I know I should think outside the box and find a different use, but until I see or am given an idea, sadly, my mind currently doesn’t stretch beyond the obvious! (Give me a few years and I might be a little more alert in those areas, say when my youngest is about 5…maybe 😉 )
Thankfully there are other very smart people in the world who have discovered other, awesome uses, for specific purpose machines such as your cake pop maker. Did you ever think of using it to make something other then cake pops? I sure didn’t! That’s where the new cookbook Savory Bites From Your Cake Pop Maker by Heather Torrone comes in, giving you 75 funs snacks, adorable appetizers and delicious entrees that can be made in your cake pop maker. And best of all most of the recipes are super easy to prepare, using ingredients that you likely have on hand or that you can purchase rather easily from the grocery store.
Some of the cake pop recipes include Pancake Balls( um yes please!), Grilled Cheese (how fun would that be for the kiddos!), Mac and Cheese (another fun idea), Burritos (my hubby’s favorite!), Burgers (burgers?? Oh yes you can!) and Chicken Parmesan(Mmmmm…). Crowd pleasing recipes for every palate if you ask me. There are even 10 other desert ideas besides cake pops! The only thing I wish the book had was a picture for each savory cake pop recipe, I’m a visual person and I like to see an example of what I’m about to make, just to make sure I do it right! 😉
I’ve been wanting to buy a cake pop maker and now I have another reason to buy one! I can’t wait to try these recipes out for my kids.
The book is available for purchase online at most online retailers as well as your standard brick and mortar stores for a cover price or $14.95 (US).
