Cheng Can Cook: Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe ★★★

Came Up with My Own Recipe. Brussels Sprouts is my all-time favorite appetizer. It could go $8-$15 at restaurants. It is about $4 at grocery stores. Perfect snack. Can explore with different toppings such as Pancetta and chopped Macadamia Nuts.

Brussels Sprouts – about 8 pieces
Shaved Cheese (such as Parmesan, Ricotta, Blue Cheese, Cheese Blend, etc.)
Oil – about 2.5 Tablespoons
Vinegar – a light splash
Salt – a big pinch
Furikake (optional)

1. Preheat oven to Broil (High-heat baking)
2. Wash, dry, and halve Brussels Sprouts
3. Toss Brussels Sprouts with Oil
4. Top with Vinegar and a pinch of Salt, then Broil with the inside faced up
5. Broil till it turns brown, then turn and have the outside faced up (so that outside skin cures up and creates nice texture)
6. When the outside turns brown like picture above, it's done. Add cheese and can bake for 1-2 minutes additional for the cheese to melt
7. Serve and add Furikake on top (optional)

Jack Jack's Disneyland Num Num Cookies Recipe ★★★

Jack Jack's Num Num Cookies at DCA. Released by Disneyland. Studying the recipe led me to undiscover Disneyland's trade secrets. If you follow their recipe, there is no way it will look like the ones at Disney's California Adventure. I added a few steps to achieve the look. Tips in captions below. I used Ghirardelli Semi-Sweet Chocolate Premium Baking Chips for this. Worth the premium. My first time baking cookie.

The one I baked. Final product.

The one I had at Disney's California Adventure last year

Extra Step – Pre-melt and stir chocolate chips in warm water in a square container

Refrigerate a little bit and cut into square chucks
also cut some smaller squares




I would not add the chocolate chips until after placing the cookie dough on baking sheet
Scooping into balls might not be necessary
Need to double the time to bake for 20 minutes for thicker cookie in a Pyrex

What it will look like if you mix the chocolate chips in the batter before

A mixture of large chocolate squares and smaller squares or chocolate chips

1st Try Baked – cookie flattens without a container

2nd Try – bake with 950 mL cylindrical Pyrex to hold its shape
Line with parchment paper beforehand
