Come See Us At Hello Wetzel!

Hey Y'all! 

 After a long hiatus and lots of thinking, my husband and I have decided to take my little blog here a little more seriously. Mostly for kicks and giggles. I enjoy writing and he loves taking photos and making awesome videos. But who knows? Maybe I'll be able to bring in a little income and help our little family get out of debt.

 I know, I know. This is the second blog move blog (and name change) I have made but I finally feel like I have found my niche in the blogging world. So...I will moving all my blogs from this blog to the new one and then I'll be diverting traffic from here (and my old recipe blog) to Hello Wetzel. And one day to Wordpress!

It's so exciting.

So go check out my new blog: http://www.hellowetzel.com/ See you there!

Paanipopo



My gorgeous Tongan sister-in-law introduced me to these amazing rolls when she and I were both expecting our first child. They are amazingly tasty, not overly sweet and very simple to make. I made them for a Relief Society last month and they were a major hit. So I thought it best to share them with you.

Paanipopo translates as Coconut Rolls and has 3 ingredients: rolls, coconut milk and sweetened condensed milk. I adapted it slightly from the original recipe which actually had you add more sugar to the milk mixture. To our family, the coconut milk and sweetened condensed milk together is a very sweet combination. 

 You can use frozen dinner rolls like Rhodes but I make my own partial or whole wheat version of the World's Best Dinner Rolls from Our Best Bites.  Either one is fine.

It might seem off pouring so much liquid onto the rolls but never fear. While they cook, the milks will thicken into a delicious, creamy sauce. With the first bite, you might even wish you had added more!

Below, I am making more than 12 rolls. I do believe I made these rolls for a family event in and thus they were doubled. Wow... I just realized that these pictures are from 2010. That was forever ago! How far our little family has come in 3 years. If my husband were the journalist then that he is now, he would've had a fit over these pictures!

Anyway, let's get started!

Paanipopo

12 Homemade or frozen dinner rolls

1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 can Coconut Milk
Grease/butter a 9x13 pan and place 12 rolls in the dish. Allow to rise in a warm place until double.
 
 
Preheat oven to 350.
 
Combine the 2 milks and pour over the rolls as evenly as you can.
 Bake the rolls as instructed (between 15-30minutes) or until golden brown. Let cool a few minutes before serving.
 Enjoy!
