Yummyday Tuesday - Lemon Scones, Chocolate Gravy and Grand Berries

The following post is a contiuation of my Simple Party Planning Course and the menu items are from my Simple Brunch.

Final week in the Simple Brunch Menu Series. Links to the previous recipes and your printable grocery shopping list is at the end of this post!

My Secret Lemon Scones

You would not believe how many people BEG for this recipe - lucky for me, there' nothing to it!

One box of Duncan Hines Blueberry Muffin Mix
One Box of Duncan Hines Poppy Seed Muffin Mix
Bake the blueberry muffins, as directed, LEAVING OUT THE BLUEBERRIES, and use mini muffins cups
Use the Lemon Glaze out of the Poppy Muffin Box on top of the mini scones.

That's it! I came up with this recipe after I bought the Poppy Seed mix one time and forgot to put on the glaze. The next time I made scones and needed a glaze, I remembered the left-over glaze and used it. It was a hit and nothing I make compares!
Chocolate GRAVY - Serve warm on top of homemade Pound Cake (that recipe is for another day!)
1/3 Cup Cocoa
1/4 Cup Milk
1 Cup Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
1 Stick Butter
1 box Powdered Sugar
Melt butter in milk on LOW - stirring constantly. Add sugars and cocoa - stir until melted. Add vanilla. You are now in Heaven!
Grand Berries - serve chilled on top of homemade pound cake (sorry - you still have to wait for that one!)
24oz Fresh blackberries - frozen will work if you must
1 MINI Grand Marnier
1 Tbsp Honey
Mix well and marinate overnight.
