At this rate, I think my mom (#heynanc) and I are on the path to opening up our own surprise party business. Everyone should know that if I ask you to join me for a drink at Wells Street Tavern in Delafield there is a 100% chance that there are 50 people in the basement waiting to yell “surprise” at you! And the other weekend that is exactly what happened to my dad for his 60th birthday.
For dad’s celebration I made over 200 Nibbles. On the menu was Lemon Chiffon Nibbles topped with raspberry buttercream frosting, Brownie Turtle Nibbles topped with caramel and crushed pecans and Red Velvet Nibbles topped with cream cheese frosting. As usual, the Red Velvet Nibbles continued to steal the show. I managed to get the Brownie Turtle Nibble to have the dense consistency of a chewy brownie and with the drizzled caramel combined with the crunch of the pecans, this Nibble was consumed at a rapid rate.
It seems as thought the “Nibble trend” is 2 – 3 Nibbles per serving and Nibble-eaters continue to eat them in 1 – 2 bites. Nibble requests are rolling in and 2017 will be a year of experimenting with new flavor combinations. In the meantime, happy birthday dad; you’re my favorite.
