Blarney Stones, pound cake cubes dipped in frosting and rolled in dry roasted peanuts, are the perfect St. Patrick's Day treat.
Soooo yummy! However I did use a homemade pound cake with a touch of lemon in it. It makes the dough taste like a doughnut after they are coated. Secondly I used salted honey roasted peanuts, makes the sweet and salty ratio balance. I also put green food coloring in one batch of icing. It made it looks so festive and moss like! Lastly, this recipe way underestimates the amount of icing and crushed peanuts you will need. I had to triple mine, but I coated them very well. This recipe also does not say to refrigerate anything. However i refrigerated the pound cake until completely cooled before cubing and i refrigerated the finished blarney stones when i was done coating them so they could set up overnight. After that it is ok to leave them out as long as it is not too hot. Enjoy!
pretty close recipe to my mother's - except she made a white cake & ground Spanish peanuts (rather than dry roasted) in her meat grinder for topping! ;)
Loved them, and they were fun to make. I made some with toasted coconut also which were also very good. They taste like little donuts. I have been making them now for the past few years and now it isn't St. Patrick's Day without them,
Yummy and simple. My husband thought they were too sweet, but I LOVED the combination of sweet and salty. I think the milk should be cut in half to make the frosting not too runny. And, my preference is for only 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Otherwise, this is the perfect fix for "boring ol' pound cake."
