Have you ever been to New Orleans for Mardi Gras? Kate and I visited New Orleans last year and we had a blast! One place you need to stop while you’re down there for Mardi Gras is Bourbon House – and get the Bourbon Milk Punch – it’s awesome! Bourbon House restaurant is literally one of the very first restaurants on Bourbon St., just off Canal St. Stop in for a bite and drink.
Today we’re making this recipe for King Cake Bites! It’s a spin off of the classic New Orleans dessert recipe for King Cake, and perfect for your Mardi Gras party.
Also, if you’re lucky enough to spend a few days in New Orleans, I highly suggest the Honey Island Swamp Tour! You’ll get to see alligators up close and personal as you ride on a guided boat through the waterways and into the swamp! Read about our Cajun Encounters Swamp Tour!
Back to our delicious King Cake Bites recipe, these little dessert bites are packed with all the flavors of King Cake, without the big mess in your kitchen. This recipe will make enough King Cake bites for you to serve up as a Mardi Gras snack at your party or bring them into work to share – it makes about 32 little Mardi Gras desserts! Just don’t forget to include a King Cake Baby in one (or a few) of them! I probably wouldn’t cook the babies into these, but serve them along side. Best not to melt the baby Jesus.
