Holiday Baking Giveaway!

Holiday Baking Giveaway

I have a couple of great items that have been sitting around my office, just begging for a great giveaway opportunity. In fact, I might have a few giveaways coming up! With the holidays upon us, I couldn’t think of a better time to start than now. This giveaway is for a box of holiday baking goodies from Nestle – including coupons for holiday baking essentials, such as Tollhouse chocolate chips (I have to recommend trying the Dark Chocolate & Mint Chips that I found at the market the other day), as well as some samples of their other products – and a pair of matching Adult and Child aprons that will help keep you clean during your holiday baking.

To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment naming your favorite holiday treat to bake and winner will be chosen at random when the contest closes. Be sure to include your e-mail address on the comment form so I can contact you if you win (e-mails will not be viewable on the site). This is a holiday weekend so you have until midnight PST on Sunday, November 28th to enter! Good luck – and great holiday baking!

Update: Contest is now closed! Thanks for entering!

    I have been making pumpkin cookies with homemade cream cheese frosting the last few years. I’am now asked to bring these to all of the Fall get togethers! They simply melt in your mouth. So darn good!

    Gluten-free Chocolate Peanut Butter Surprise Cookies! (Chocolate cookie dough wrapped around a sweet peanut butter filling and baked to slightly gooey perfection)
    Or, what I call, Apocalypse Cookies (delicious, but so involved they’re only made on such occasions as the apocalypse).

    I love making homemade chocolate truffles — they are so easy, but really delicious and have a great “wow factor” — I love to make them as gifts because they are inexpensive, but don’t look it.

    I love to make cookies! Every year I make cherry and dark chocolate chunk cookies bc my family requests them – they are just a basic chocolate chip cookie base, but with chopped up dark chocolate and dried cherries mixed in. I also love to try new recipes every year, and your somoa cookie recipe has been a recent fav!

    It’s funny that you mentioned the dark chocolate and mint chips because I was wondering if they were going to be sold this holiday. I tried them last Christmas, which is my favorite holiday, and they were a hit at the office. My favorite treat to bake are all kinds of cookies (personal favorites are chocolate chip and oatmeal). Happy Holidays!

    Coconut Cake…….. something about them just reminds me of a snowy night. Makes me want a piece of cake and some hot chocolate next to the fire with my favorite person, my husband.

    I LOVE pecan pie. And have to eat it at some point in the holiday season to keep happy.

    Because I’m sort of intimidated by baking pie on my own, I found an awesome pecan pie cupcake recipe! Soooo good!

    Lady fingers. That’s what my Nana called them, but they were more like Mexican wedding cookies rolled into the shape of a finger. She could make them so fine – they’d crumble when we’d pick them up. Yum.

    I love baking almond cookies. They were my favorite cookies when I was a kid and now my daughter and I bake them. Of course, I practically have to fight her for them.

    I would be remiss to not mention my Grandma’s Chocolate Chip Cookies. They are by far the biggest crowd pleaser. And if they were left off the Christmas table, I would have a lot of explaining to do.

    I make my grandmother’s apricot bars for my father and every year he gets a tear in his eye when he eats them. He tells me that I made them just as good as his mother once did. Enjoy the season!
