Bunco Night – Lots of Recipes

Confetti cake. No seriously, will someone make me one. I’m hungry. Confetti cake makes my inner 5 year old self really happy.

Last night I hosted the neighborhood ladies bunco group at my house. Bonus of having baby sister in town? She can vacuum while you’re at work. I thought I would share all of my recipes from last night since they were all gobbled up!

Everything is “semi-homemade”…my favorite.

Baked Spinach Artichoke Dip

Served with tortilla chips. Recipe here.

Meatball Popovers with Marinara 


  • 1 can flaky biscuits
  • 10 frozen cooked turkey meatballs, thawed, each cut in half
  • 2 string cheese, each cut into 10 pieces
  • 1 Tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tps Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tps garlic powder
  • 1 cup marinara sauce, heated


  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Cut each biscuit in half.
  2. Place 1 meatball half and 1 string cheese piece in center of each. Wrap dough around meatball and cheese, pressing edges to seal. Roll into ball and place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Sprinkle evenly with Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning and garlic powder.
  4. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm biscuits with warm marinara sauce for dipping.

Turkey, Swiss & Pesto Ciabatta Sandwiches

Mini ciabatta rolls topped with pesto then toasted. Top with turkey and swiss.

Garlic Hummus

Sabre brand (keeping it easy). Served with Gluten Free & Wheat Crackers.

Hornet’s Nest Cake

  • 1 pkg. instant vanilla pudding (3.4 oz.)
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 12 oz. butterscotch morsels
  • 1 c. chopped pecans
  • 2 cups coconut almond milk
  1. Heat oven to 350. Mix pudding and cold milk until well blended. Mix in dry cake mix.
  2. Pour into a greased 9 x 13 pan. Drop the morsels evenly over the mixture then top with the nuts. Bake for 30 minutes.

I had two events with a small amount of people at each. I divided this mix into 2 – 8″ round cake pans. I allowed the first one to fully cool before transferring to cake stand. I placed the second one in the fridge (covered) until the next event (2 days later). Both cakes were a hit!
