Once again, my friend Kim C. does not let me down. She had recently given me the following 2 recipes. They are party faves and although I did not get them posted for Christmas or New Years, you could make them for a Super Bowl gig.
1 package Rhodes Texas Rolls, thawed (only thaw half bag for small event or lack of pans)
1/2 stick butter, melted
Take a thawed roll. Cut it in four equal sections. Place dough bites on greased sheets. I placed five across and five down on large baking sheets. Cover with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, and let dough rise until double in size. (about 1 hour) Bring a large pot of water to a gentle boil. When dough has risen, plop about 10-15 pieces into the boiling water, tossing gently for about 45-60 seconds. Remove with slotted spoon, and place bites on towels to drain slightly. Move bites to greased baking sheets, and bake at 375 degrees for about 25-35 minutes or until done and golden brown.
You can also make Cinnamon and Sugar bites or Garlic Parmesan bites.
Chocolate Rolo Cookies
1 pkg Devil Food cake mix
1/3 cup oil
1 pkg Rolos, unwrapped
Mix cake mix, oil and eggs. Take a small ball of dough and form a ball around Rolo, covering entire Rolo. Place on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 8 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Cool on wire rack. Yields 2-3 dozen.
The cookies don't really spread much so you can place them pretty close together on cookie sheet and get them done really quickly.
