12 Foods on a Stick

12 Foods on a Stick
Some foods are just better on a stick. Take these State Fair recipes, for instance! MORE+ LESS-
By Burn The Wine

Here in the land of 10,000 lakes, that most sacred of all seasons is almost upon us. Yes, it's almost time for the Minnesota State Fair.

Now, for those of you who don’t know the glory of The Great Minnesota Get Together (there’s actually a Wikipedia page so it’s totally legit), get ready. It’s a great opportunity to learn about crocheting, cakes, craft beers, animal husbandry and to ride some pretty ridiculous rides.

And the food! It’s as varied as the breeds of roses on display – and it typically comes on a stick. If you’re too far away to visit in person, you can easily create the same spirit of fun right at home.  Try out some of these lovely and delicious State Fair-inspired treats! They’re sure to please, doncha know.

1. Salted Caramel Crescent Donuts on a Stick

Pillsbury Crescent Rolls are what you need for a strong donuty foundation; top it off with sweet, sticky caramel and a dash of sea salt. Yum!

2. Savory Corn on a Stick

Yes, it has to be on a stick – for safety and science. Zazz up that corn with zesty Italian dressing and Parmesan cheese.

3. Fried Tamale on a Stick

They’re so little and round and cute! And let’s not forget delicious; you’re going to end up eating about 12 of them. Just accept.

4. Brownies on a Stick

Wowie! Betty Crocker Original Supreme Premium brownie mix and Decorating Decors candy sprinkles are about all you need (plus some sticks, of course) to create this magical treat.

5. Crescent Dogs on a Stick

Now it’s getting real – real delicious, that is. You’re so enamored with the Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls wrapped around that savory meat log that you didn’t even realize THERE’S CHEESE IN THERE! Yeah. Think on that, why doncha.

6. Corn Dog Pops

Little baby corn dogs made from regular sized hotdogs!  Now that is ingenuity – the very thing that’s celebrated at the State Fair.

7. Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs

Pillsbury Grands! biscuits, whipped topping and sweet, fresh strawberries are combined in this creative and perfect-for-summer dessert on a stick!

8. Pie Pops

Ever see something so amazing that for just a second you kind of actually get a little mad? That’s the way I feel about the CUTE LITTLE YUMMY PIES ON A STICK. I can totally envision myself shoveling about three of them in my face. Such powerful and conflicting feelings!

9. Fried Mac and Cheese Balls

So you’re probably noticing a theme right? I mean, aside from the sticks. There’s a fair (Ahahaha!) amount of frying that goes on at the Fair. But it’s totes okay since it only happens once a year. Go ahead, indulge a little.

10. Mini Cinnamon Bun Treats

These yummy little cinnamon buns feature pumpkin pie spices and rich cream cheese frosting.

11. Grilled Pizza Roll Kabobs

Frozen Totino's Pizza Rolls and fresh peppers hot off the grill! Be careful though, that cheesy inside might need a second or two to calm down before you put it in your face.

12. Deep Fried Candy Bars

You need this in your life. You didn’t know you needed it, but now you realize you do. So dude, go get a can of Pillsbury™ Grands! Flaky Layers refrigerated original or buttermilk biscuits, a fistful of candy bars, and let’s get this party started.
