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 JELL-O Pudding Snacks

Good day everyone, June is finally here. Some kids are out of school and other will be getting in the next few days. Summer plans are being finalized, picnics on the beach, overnight camp, sleep overs, etc. All of these things need snacks don’t they? Today we are going to share a classic snack that has added some new flavors to their line. Growing you remember the classic commercial of Bill Cosby and JELL-O Chocolate Pudding? We still love that one. This week’s Taste Test Tuesday post is about JELL-O Pudding Snacks.


Orange Ice Cream Shop 

This one tastes like an orange creamsicle in a cup, you know the ones you got as a kid from the ice cream truck. Creamy orange flavor with the hint of vanilla cream, makes this a great dessert snack. Just think, no messy ice cream on your hands and no sticky fingers afterwards.

Strawberry Sundae

The kids loved these, they thought they were great. Great afternoon snack for them without rushing to the nearest ice cream shop, and it’s less sugar. Strawberry flavored pudding with a strawberry sauce on top. Well you could tell there was the flavor of strawberry in the pudding but we were expecting a more intense flavor. But if you don’t want a strong strawberry flavor then this will definitely work for you.

S’MORES

Let’s say it’s raining out and you can’t make a fire in the back yard but you are craving you camping favorite S’mores. Or, you have an electric stove so there is no fire for you to use. Either way this JELL-O Pudding Snack will help your craving.  Chocolate pudding with a marshmallow topping in a cup. The marshmallow topping does taste like it has some graham cracker flavor to it. We just added more graham crackers to ours. The kids loved it, the adults loved it.

As always, we appreciate any feedback you can give us, whether it be on the blog, Facebook, Twitter or email.  Thanks for checking us out every week.
