A Holiday Season of Simple Gifts

Ambitious Kitchen's Grain Free Hot Cocoa Brownie Bites

While most of us think of the holidays as a time to bake up a batch of cookies for Santa, we just can't forget about our long lost love - brownies! Monique of Ambitious Kitchen brings together two of our favorites: hot cocoa and our Chocolate Muffin & Cake Mix to form these fudgey works of art. Don't forget the mini marshmallows on top and an optional but highly recommended drizzle of chocolate!

A Clean Bake's Chocolate Covered Grain Free Cracker Toffee

What's a holiday party without a little toffee? Nora from A Clean Bake took a twist on your average toffee to not only simplify it but make it gluten, grain and refined-sugar free.  She topped our Fine Ground Sea Salt Crackers with a combination of dark chocolate, coconut sugar and maple syrup. To make these toffee pieces your own, you can add sprinkles, nuts, shaved coconut or extra chocolate chips. Wrap them in cellophane and hand them out at any last minute holiday party or use as a stocking stuffer. Yum!

Lake Shore Lady's Cinnamon Raisin Pecan Coffee Cake

Lauren of Lake Shore Lady put together the ultimate Christmas morning treat of a coffee cake made from our Vanilla Cake Mix. To give the cake a little extra love, she topped it with a cinnamon, coconut sugar and pecan crumble that makes this gift the ultimate holiday breakfast, brunch option or even side by side with a scoop of ice cream, one dreamy dessert. We don't blame you if you make this one on your own but if you're giving it as a gift, you can print the instructions here too.
