My recipe for Easy Petits Fours is, by far, my most popular post. I have people coming to that post every single day! So, here you go!
When you're done reading the recipe, please make sure and read about my blogging friend, Cindy at Blessings From Cindy, and the gorgeous craft idea she came up with! Her Craft Blotter is so easy---you could make one today for a Christmas gift---and make one tomorrow for yourself!
|For several years, I would make these really easy petits fours for different church functions. Here's how you can make a simple petit four with basic ingredients and supplies you likely have on hand.|
Begin with a boxed Pound Cake mix and the ingredients mentioned on the back (eggs, water, etc.) You will also need a package of vanilla almond bark and food coloring if desired.
|Line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper. I like to spray the pan with nonstick spray or water first to help the paper stick to the pan and not roll up. Mix your cake ingredients according to the directions on the box, spread batter into pan, and bake at 350 for 15-20 min. or until done and lightly golden brown.|
|If you desire a decoration on top, add it as soon as you place the cake on the paper to cool. Almond Bark sets up pretty quickly and you want your decoration to stick. I found these pearly candies at Target in the Easter section.|
|Once the coating has hardened, you are all done! I got several compliments on these today from my homeschooling mom friends! In the past, I've taken the time to fill them with jelly or frosting. This makes for a much taller petit four, but one could always cut the cake in half before filling---although this will make it less stable as the cake will be pretty thin. Have fun making these and make sure to send me pictures of your own creations!|
