I big puffy heart Cafe du Monde!

Have you ever been to New Orleans?? If you have not, get your backside down there for a little Spring trip. Spring is so beautiful there!

I have a wonderful college friend that has included me in so many fun New Orleans adventures…and Cafe du Monde is ALWAYS a part of all of those adventures! There is really nothing like a hot cafe au lait with an even hotter fresh beignets topped with sweet powdered sugar!!!  Oh man, my mouth is watering just thinking about it!

However, I do not get as many chances in the ole calendar to get down to Louisiana now as I used to (*sigh with sadness*). Thankfully for me, Cafe du Monde will ship both their coffee and beignet mix to you!  When I first moved home from Texas I had a regular order of their coffee shipped my way….was ever so thankful for those boxes on my doorstep.

And then one day I happened on the mix at a Cost Plus World Market. Really!?? REALLY! And I’ve been buying it there ever since.

They really are beyond easy to make.  Start to finish, MAYBE 20 minutes.

For some reason last week I pulled out a heart cookie cutter rather than making the little beignet squares….and who knew….they turned into BIG PUFFY HEARTS when I fried them up! The kids had a big kick out of this. We’ve been testing differnet shapes and so far hearts and flowers are still our favorites.

Give it a shot, I think they will become a Big Puffy Heart Favorite!
