Our Secret Family Recipe: Butter on a Stick by Cleo Coyle




Marc, my beloved husband and partner in crime-writing, never knew his Aunt Felicity (she died tragically young of a massive coronary), but he grew up hearing about her fabulous holiday dinners, which included ten or twelve main courses and a half-dozen desserts.

Aunt Felicity’s meals were so legendary that, in her honor, Marc’s mother prepared one of Felicity’s favorite and most popular dishes for every family holiday: Butter on a Stick!

Like puff pastries, croissants, and pies, Butter on a Stick can be made sweet or savory. And...you’ll be amazed to learn that something this amazing is actually a "no-fuss" treat. Butter on a Stick is so easy, you can prepare it with your kids, or (better yet) have those little, freeloading rug rats make it for you!

Meanwhile, enjoy these tempting photo samples,
to give you an idea of just how versatile Butter on a Stick can be.




Here’s a tasty dessert variation. Butter on a Stick with Donut Holes! Or try coating the original Butter on a Stick (see first photo) with chocolate jimmies, or rolling it in M & M’s, crushed nuts, or crumbled Oreos. Or simply add marshmallows, Hershey’s kisses, and fun-sized, sliced up Reese’s Cups. Yes, that would a Rocky Road Butter on a Stick!!! You are limited only by your imagination, budget, and (of course) your doctor's orders.




This Easter version of this classic dessert displays the beautifully bright yellows of spring. 



Here's one for Grilling Season: Bacon-Wrapped Butter on a Stick! 
Or...if you crave sweet with your salty, try Chocolate-Dipped Bacon-wrapped Butter on a Stick with a sprinkling of French Sea Salt, of course. Oh la-la! Other popular savory versions have featured pepperoni, ham, fried chicken tenders, pork kabobs, sausages, mini-franks, and meatballs.



Butter on a Stick with Fruit! Here’s a healthier alternative. Or you can try tofu, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, apple pieces, melon slices, or bananas.
