With a steady stream of holiday parties from Thanksgiving all the way to the New Year, I have a lot of opportunities to make delicious desserts that are truly special to share with my family and friends. But, you know what? Sometimes, and I know this will come as a shock, I am really busy from Thanksgiving until New Year’s. Crazy, right? Who knew? Sometimes, I need a little help in the kitchen.
I just learned about Miss Jones Baking Co. and am so excited about using their products as my baker’s helpers this year! Not only are their baking mixes and frostings completely and utterly drool-worthy—they’re certified organic, non-GMO, plant-based, responsibly sourced, and contain no artificial colors or flavors. They are practically guilt free!
Miss Jones Baking Co. sent me some of their spectacular fudgy brownie mix and Salted Caramel frosting to try out. (OK…twist my arm…)
In no time flat, I was able to whip up some gooey Turtle Brownies, with the simple addition of some chopped toasted pecans on top.
The brownies were deliciously rich and fudgy, and the frosting was so light and fluffy you’d swear I’d whipped it up myself in my mixer.
(And nobody needs to know otherwise. Wink wink.)
Between November 11 and December 23, Miss Jones Baking Co. is holding the Bake-it-Better Challenge, which gives you the chance to win a Grand Prize worth over $1,500—including a $1,000 gift card, the full line of Miss Jones products, a KitchenAid Mixer, William-Sonoma Goldtouch Baking Set, Scharffen Berger Chocolates, and much more!
Plus, every entry means $1 donated to the SF-Marin Food Bank [https://www.sfmfoodbank.org/]. At this time of year, I know every little bit helps those in need—so join in the fun and make the holiday season sweeter for everyone!
It’s really easy to participate:
Step 1: Bake something fantastic using a Miss Jones baking mix or frosting. Get creative—ideas like pumpkin cake bars, chocolate and pecan cupcakes, maple and walnut sugar cookies. The Miss Jones website [www.missjones.co] has great inspiration, and using one of their mixes makes it super easy (and yummy, obviously).
Step 2: Take a photo of your beautiful treat and post it to Instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #betterwithmissjones. If you’re submitting via Instagram, be sure to tag @missjonesco, too! If you’re submitting via Facebook, be sure to post your entry directly onto the official Miss Jones Baking Co. Facebook page [https://www.facebook.com/missjonesbakingco/].
That’s it. For each entry containing the hashtag #betterwithmissjones, $1 goes to the SF-Marin Food Bank—and you can enter multiple times!
