Program Type:Cooking Classes
Join Food Explorers to create a delicious sweet treat! What do you get when you put together crescent roll dough and chocolate hummus? (Yes, hummus, but we promise it's great!) Chocolate Croissant Bites! Roll out your dough, fill with chocolate hummus and seal them up tight, then watch them transform in the cake pop machine to delicious golden brown treats. This recipe is nut free.
Like all our teen events, this program is totally free, open to residents of any town in Grades 6-12, and sponsored by the Friends of the Southbury Public Library.
