Taste Test Tuesday: Baker’s Dipping Chocolate

Happy Tuesday Everyone!! We hope you had an amazing start to your week. We’re back this week in the kitchen with a new taste test. This week it’s Baker’s Dipping Chocolate. This chocolate comes in a small bowl that you can heat up in the microwave in a matter of minutes…such a wonderful idea. This smooth, not too rich chocolate comes in three flavors, milk chocolate, white chocolate and dark semi sweet chocolate.

Perfect for cake pops, cookies, bon bons, and fruit. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so why not be creative and make your own chocolate covered strawberries, cherries, and pineapples? You can even smother pretzels rods, marshmallows and nuts. Such a quick and easy idea, takes a lot of the work of tempering chocolate and using a double boiler out of the equation.

    

You get to indulge in your chocolate dipped food excursions sooner than you think! Grab your bowl and get to dipping. This will be our afternoon snack today.


Taste Test Tuesday: Postponed this week

So we had a post ready to go for you this morning and had to quickly stop it from going out because we realized that Oreo’s would take over the entire month of September. So we decided to give Oreos a whole week to themselves. Be on the look for a fun week next week with out friends at Oreos. There were so many flavors to choose from so we got our hands on what week could just for you.

Anything you guys wants us to include? Recipes, tips, etc. Just let us know!

Cooking With Betty Crocker ‘Sweet & Savory Cookies’

How do like your cookies, sweet, extra sweet, chewy, or how about savory? Well we had the chance to receive some great sweet and savory cookies from Betty Crocker called Chocolate Dipped Olive Sables.

 

 

 

 

 

Buttery shortbread cookies with pistachio nuts and dark chocolate chips make this cookie a great holiday choice. The cookies actually have a secret ingredient…kalamata olives!! We were shocked to find out there were olives in the cookies. You can’t even tell they are in there. The sweet and salty combination of the cookie goes great with tea or coffee. Yes, they are called ‘olive sables’ but you would expect to taste a strong olive flavor and you don’t. We think Santa would appreciate these great treats, with a tall glass of milk.

We have a two year old in the house and he got to decorate the tree over the weekend, boy did he enjoy that. The lights, the ornaments even putting the wreaths on the front door seems to make him  happy. These are the moments that reminded my sister and I about our childhood and Christmas time. Those memories had us thinking about the traditions we were brough up on and what we are looking forward to this holiday season.
