If you didn't realize that dessert dumplings are a thing, you're in for a treat. Not only are these dumplings sweet, they include a special ingredient- Mountain Dew! Who knew that soda could be incorporated into a dessert? The warm flavors of cardamom and nutmeg combine with citrus to make a delicious flavored butter. Add this to crescent rolls and sweet Mountain Dew icing and you have yourself the delicious Mountain Dew Apple Dumpling!
Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings
I love this recipe that calls for Mountain Dew in apple dumplings. It’s unexpected to me but maybe not crazy enough for a book mention. It’s ridiculously yummy. My college roommate made them for me, and I overlooked her failure to do her chores for weeks after eating them.
If you've ever wished for a smaller, easier version of apple pie, this dessert recipe is your solution. These apple desserts have all the warm, autumny flavors of pie but in bite-sized portions. The best part is, you don't have to worry about making crust- all you have to do for the "crust" in this easy recipe is unroll your crescent rolls. The best apples to use are generally tart ones like Granny Smith Apples. These typically hold their shape while baking and result in the perfect amount of sweetness when combined with sugar.
For an alternative to the Mountain Dew in this apple dumpling recipe, use Sprite instead. This will result in a similar tasty treat, with slightly more lemon-lime. You can also substitute for Ginger Ale, which will yield less citrus and more ginger. When it comes to the fruity side of things, peaches are a yummy replacement for apples if that's what you have on hand. For an extra indulgent dessert, enjoy your apple dumplings with a whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!
