Try these recipes for your next Mexican Train Dominoes game night
Mexican Train Dominoes is a train load of fun with your friends or family. But you level-up your game and show how serious a player you are by preparing some special domino-themed snacks and treats.
For the less-talented bakers out there, you can’t get much easier than this recipe from Nestle, archived on STLCooks.com:
That’s it! You take some pre-made cookie dough, cut them in half lengthwise, roll out the door over a lightly-floured surface, and cut into 10-12 rectangles. Press down some chocolate chips and score down the middle for a "crease" and bake for 10-13 minutes at 325°F.
1 package (18 ounces) Refrigerated Sugar Cookie Dough Bars
1-3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup (1.5 ounces) Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
Bonus idea: a similar idea from MouthsofMums.com has another variation on this similar idea. Perfect for our British friends who want biscuits and not cookies.
Another semi-homemade idea uses white cake mix, chocolate frosting, white candies, and white frosting. It’ll take about an hour for the whole thing. More from BHG.com:
Bake the cake to directions in a 13x9 baking pan at 350°F, spread frosting on top, and decorate with candies.
1 2-layer-size package white cake mix
¾ cup canned chocolate frosting
¼ cup canned white frosting
2 tablespoons white candy-coated milk chocolate pieces or other white candies*
Bonus idea: use M&M’s as colored dots, akin to your favorite Mexican Train Dominoes app.
Dice cheese "ball"
Make your own cheese ball or grab one from the store and shape it into a cube. Use black olives cut in half to mark the dots and serve with crackers. Get all the details from tasteofhome.com:
3 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened, divided
2 cups shredded Italian cheese blend or part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
1 teaspoon whole milk
8 medium pitted ripe olives
Peanut Butter Domino Brownies
This recipe calls for a special brownie mix, but just about any brownie mix will do. Just make sure it can handle having a little melted peanut butter added in.
Or, if you have a nut allergy to work with, leave the nuts and peanut butter out. This via tastefullysimple.com:
Bake to directions and cut into bite-size rectangles to decorate once cool with white icing.
1 pkg. Truffle Fudge Brownie Mix
½ cup (1 stick) melted butter
2 large eggs, beaten
½ cup creamy peanut butter, melted
White decorating frosting with narrow decorating tip
