Look, I would never call myself a “lazy” mom because that just feels like an oxymoron. Efficient is more accurate, especially when it comes to getting treats into my mouth. I thought I’d share with you a few of my favorite dessert hacks and shortcuts to help you do the same. Because, I’m a giver. That’s why.
Enjoy my fellow comrades in motherhood, treat yo’ self 2016!
1⁄2 cup Nutella
16 wonton skins
1 banana, sliced into 15 thin rounds
Olive oil or nonstick cooking spray
Confectioner’s sugar (optional)
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Place 1/2 tablespoon of Nutella into the center of each wonton skin. Put a banana slice on the Nutella. Dip your finger in some water, run it along the edge of the skin, and fold the skin in half, pressing to seal. Arrange the prepared ravioli on a greased baking sheet. Brush the ravioli with olive oil.
Bake until the skins are crispy and golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool slightly, then serve. If desired, dust the ravioli with confectioner’s sugar just before serving.
Nutella Marshmallow Fluff Pound Cake Sandwich
1⁄2 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon Nutella
Pound cake (2 slices)
1 tablespoon Marshmallow Fluff
In a nonstick grill pan set over medium-low heat, melt butter. Spread Nutella on 1 slice of pound cake. Spread Marshmallow Fluff on a second slice of pound cake. Add a sprinkle of sea salt. Press the slices together to make a sandwich and put the sandwich in the hot buttered pan. Cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Serve immediately.
