What snack do you wish you could make at home?

I am having a WICKED craving for zebra domes. If I had the recipe (and a bottle of that yummy liqueur) I believe I'd make some. What snacks/treats do you wish you had the recipe for? If you had recipes, would you make treats at home? Or is it just not the same?

This isnt really a treat, but when we went to Boma... I had the Fufu and just loved it. So I knew I had to recreate it at home one time, and actually pulled it off. Wasnt too hard... but that was the first time where I actually just had to come home and recreate a dish I had elsewhere.

As for the actual topic. Those Mickey Icecream Bars are just awesome.... I know I could go to the store, and get an icecream bar thats similar... but its just not the same. I want to taste the Disney Magic!

Love Mickey Icecream bars! (of course I do!!)

Fufu - is that the juice that everyone loves so much? Care to share your recipe?

I tried to find a picture of it... but cant find one. Basically there is a couple different types of FuFu. The type I made and that is at Boma is Caribbean FuFu. Its like mash potatoes, but rather than using said potatoes... you use yams.

Basically boil yams for about 30 minutes (peel and cut them up into cubes)
Put them into a blender with a stick of butter, some cinnamon and add milk to get the thickness you want.

It ended up being super simple, and it tastes great to be honest. The hard part is cutting up the yams... they are extremely tough to cut through since they have no moister really in them. I can go more into specifics on the ingrediants and such, but it really is super simple. It goes GREAT with pork chops in my opinion. But the key is a lot of butter.

Isn't that the key to all food?

Yay food! I bought the cookbook from Restaurant Marrakesh so I could make their vegetable couscous!!

I would love to know how to make beignets though. At POFQ, they sell them and they are delicious! I just need a giant deepfryer and a lot of dough.

Basically, yes, that's the secret to good beignets Smile

Mase - rather than peeling, cubing, and killing your hands, try roasting the yams instead, in their jackets, then scoop out the flesh and proceed as before. The taste is richer, more concentrated, and you get to skip the blisters! (We learned this trick years ago for our white sweet potato casserole that we make for the holidays.)

I'm not sure...I haven't had the pleasure of Boma. It's the juice that Bella threatened to attack someone over biggrin if she didn't get it fast enough.
