Chopped Jr.: Home Version Mystery Basket 3

Dessert Basket:  Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal, Canned Biscuits, Medjool Dates, and a red Tamarillo!


I had never used red tamarillo before… so yea. Let's just taste it. Problem solved!

Nope, definitely not problem solved!! That thing is so sour! So I cut them up and add some sugar and it helps a little but it still needs something. So all I need is to make a dessert sweet enough to make the red tamarillo taste good! My idea is to make a cobbler type thing with the biscuit dough and add in the tamarillo! So I get the biscuit dough rolled out and in to the ramekins for the crust and brush on some melted butter on the bottom and sides to give it some buttery flavor. Now I have to fill it, top it with the rest of the dough sprinkled with sugar.  Boom…in the oven!

With the dates I think that I can make a sauce like thing to go on top with milk, sugar, and dates! So I blend all that up and I realize that I have 5 minutes left! My cobblers are done so I take them out and top them with my sauce right as I hear 10,9,8,7,6,4,3,2,1,0! Then I now realize that I didn't use Cinnamon Toast Crunch!😱😰   I must get better at getting all the ingredients on the plate before I head to New York!

Well, lets see how it tastes!  It's pretty good, I could have incorporated the cereal in my crust to add a nice crunch!
