Tailgating treats . . .

BYU football is in full swing, and I can’t wait to get my hands on a Cougar Tail. It’s a golden brown, 2 foot long maple bar that always hits the spot.

For my game day tailgate, I whipped up a semi-homemade Cougar Tail that’s just as sweet and a fraction of the size. You can’t compete with this maple buttercream–it’s far better than any you can buy at the store.

You’ll need:

plain donut bars (no frosting)
2 sticks of unsalted butter
3/4 c. powdered sugar
1 c. (high quality) maple syrup
2 tsp. Mexican pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
Nestlé® candy for topping

Add the butter, powdered sugar, maple syrup, vanilla extract and salt to a stand mixer and whisk on low for 1-2 minutes. Once the ingredients are all combined, increase the mixer speed until the mixture is light and fluffy. This usually takes 5-7 minutes. Use the maple buttercream frosting immediately, spreading it generously on top of the plain donut bars. Store any extra frosting in an airtight container for up to a week.

To kick things up a notch, I crumbled up a Nestlé® Crunch® bar and sprinkled it over my Cougar Tails.   This ties in perfectly with my ‘Crunch those Broncos’ candy themed party favor.
