baking in cupcake papers

  • k

Should I spray oil or something on the paper baking cups (made for cupcakes) if I am filling them to bake a new product, Almond Roca Buttercrunch Cookie Bar Mix, you think?

It's described as "shortbread cookie layer topped with Brown & Haley Almond Roca Buttercrunch" and directions say to bake it in n 8 X 8 X 2-inch pan. But, I want to make them in Christmas print paper cups and then add a green Christmas tree of Kellogs Rice Crispie treats (marshmallow) on top with a popsicle stick or something.

But, I want to make sure the paper will come off the almond roca cookie bar. Would the silver ones be better? But, I already have the paper ones. Can I just spray them with oil? Or need to?

  1. Hmmm...sounds like a sticky issue :-) I think that the almond roca part might stick to the paper no matter what. I would do it in a greased muffin tin and then drop them into the pretty cups when they are finished. You could try greasing one batch, see how it goes, but I think that the sugar in the roca part would just adhere to the paper...I guess lining them with parchment would kind of defeat the purpose of the cups, but there is always that option.

      Wow, when I saw the name of what you're making, all it came across as was "sugar sugar cookie mix". Sounds good but sweet. I always thought you were supposed to use both layers (paper and metal) when you baked it. Otherwise, those metal ones aren't very sturdy by themselves. If I were making this, I would just make it in the form suggested by the recipe and then cut them up and place it into the holiday paper cups (like Pepperidge Farms cookies that come in paper cups).

      BTW, it's no fun to bite into something non-edible when you're expecting to just take a big bite. I would probably use pretzel sticks (pocky?) instead of popsicle sticks.
