Recipe: Mardi Gras Treats

Southern Hurricane
In a shaker with ice add:
1½ ounces Southern Comfort
1½ ounces sweet and sour mix
1½ ounces orange juice
1½ ounces pineapple juice
Splash of grenadine

Shake and strain into a hurricane glass with ice and garnish with a cherry and orange slice.
Bananas Foster
¼ cup (½ stick) butter
1 cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ cup banana liqueur
4 bananas, cut in ½-inch slices
¼ cup Southern Comfort Bold Black Cherry
Pound cake cut into 1-inch slices 
Whipped cream
Chocolate syrup

In a pan over low heat, combine the butter, sugar and cinnamon. Cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Stir in the banana liqueur and then add the bananas. When the bananas soften and begin to brown, carefully add the Southern Comfort. When the sauce is very hot, tip the pan slightly to ignite. When the flames subside, generously spoon the bananas and warm sauce over the pound cake.  Top with whipped cream and drizzle with chocolate syrup. 

Easy Chocolate Beignets
1 tube refrigerated buttermilk biscuit dough
1 bag miniature dark chocolate chips
Canola or peanut oil
Cocoa powder and powdered sugar (equal parts)

Open the tube of biscuits and roll each one out flat.  In the center of each place a heaping teaspoon of chocolate chips.  Fold the dough over and seal with the tines of a fork.  Repeat with the remaining biscuits and chocolate chips.

In a frying pan, add one half-inch depth of oil and bring up to 300 degrees.  Carefully place several of the folded biscuits in the pan and fry until golden brown.  Be sure not to overcrowd them, you can make several batches.  Sprinkle the beignets with cocoa powder and powdered sugar then let the good times roll!
