My friend Vicki makes granola. It’s addictive, so it makes sense that it’s called My Favorite Indulgence. Let me tell you. There’s a chocolate one and I think I like it more than regular chocolate. It’s so addictive, I wouldn’t be surprised to see cops busting in on a granola party with Jerry Garcia, Charles Dickens, and Lindsay Lohan. That would be an odd party.

 

Seriously, I’m going to stock up on these. Fill my entire house with bags of My Favorite Indulgence. Then, get a star spot on Hoarders. I’ll be known as the crazy chick that hoards granola.

 

So it would only make sense to use the granola to make little, dainty edible spoons, right?

The spoons can hold a dollop of yogurt, or anything you like to eat your granola with. Fill shooter glasses with puréed fruit and whipped cream, then serve on a tray with the spoons. Awesome little party apps. Shoot, if you have kids these will work a lot better than the “airplane” method when getting them to eat. Edible spoon > plastic spoon we call airplane.

 

Did I mention I also have a giveaway? I will tell you a little more about that. In the meantime, check out the other raging-party-in-your-mouth flavors of My Favorite Indulgence by visiting their website here.

Here’s What You Need For Mini Granola Spoons

Ingredients

 

Tools

 

 

Yields about 6-8 depending on size of the spoons.

 

Pour granola into your food processor and pulse until granola is broken up into small pieces. Set to the side. This is  the pumpkin spice granola.

Wrap aluminum foil tightly around each tasting spoon and coat with a touch of oil.

Melt butter, honey and brown sugar in a sauce pan on medium low until sugar is dissolved and the mixture is boiling slightly.

Remove from heat and add in about 8-10 tablespoons of processed granola. You want it wet enough to mold together but still as close to dry as possible without crumbling and falling apart.

When mixture becomes just cool enough to handle, mold granola into each foil-covered spoon and pop into freezer.

Tip:
-If granola mixture hardens before you are finished molding the spoons, reheat on the stove on low to soften.

Turn oven on to 350 degrees. Remove granola on foil from appetizer spoons, and turn foil up around edges so it is now cradled inside. Bake spoons on a baking sheet for about 8-10 minutes. It will melt and bubble a little.

 

Once it is cool enough to handle, press your finger in to make a cavity so you may use your spoon to scoop and hold. You can also use a toothpick or knife to neaten up any messy parts of the spoon while it is still cooling. Store in fridge before serving.

 

Tip:

-Spoons should be served in cool temperatures, as they will fall apart and melt. I know this because my AC was broken. In Texas.

Fill shooter glasses with yogurt or whipped cream and puréed fruit. Eat with your pinkie sticking up. I don’t know why, just do it, damnit.

  3. Courtneymomof5 says:

    Will a root beer count? I just happened to ber sipping on an IBC root beer when I opened this email! I’m not a big chocolate fan….GASP! I know, but I love some fall flavors. Pumpkin spice sounds delish and I also see a kid cooking project ahead with the spoon idea. Thanks..

  4. I’m not posting for the giveaway (none of that stuff suits my dietary needs) but wanted to express sympathy for the AC being out. Ours was too…twice…with a three-week old in the house. O.o

  5. I was never big on cartoons when I was young but loved The Brady Bunch, The Partridge Family, and Giligan’s Island. I would come home from school and sit and eat my snack and watch one of these shows. I did marry a man who loves cartoons, and I have found myself watching Dexter’s Lab, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and Johnny Bravo.

  6. amy says:

    I loved Three’s Company for its grown up humor that I probably never fully understood but thought I did!

    I loved Land of the Lost when growing up. It was one of the first shows that I watched that was adventurous and exciting! :)

  83. heather c says:

    The Jetsons. I could just dream and dream some more about waking up a hideous creature then having my face ‘done’ in seconds…and let’s not even get into the instant manicure machine. WHY AREN’T WE THERE YET?

  84. mary gardner says:

    i grew up watching the brady bunch. i loved it then, although it seems a little silly now. but i can let my daughter watch reruns now and not worry about her seeing something inappropriate.
