No-Bake Chocolate Eclair Sandwiches #NestleTollHouse @NestleTollHouse #Giveaway #Ad

    In our home, we have special go-to desserts that we like to enjoy during the summertime.  Since it is hot and humid here in New York City, the name of the game is no-bake summer recipes that taste delicious.  NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE morsels are the perfect ingredient for these recipes because they are so yummy and very versatile.  Any treat that contains these morsels of goodness is mouth-watering as far as we are concerned.    One of my favorite desserts to make for our family are No-Bake Chocolate Eclair Sandwiches.  It's my own spin on an old-time favorite which I like to top with NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE semi-sweet mini morsels.  Chocolate mini-morsels are made with the same rich, real semi-sweet chocolate that the regular-sized morsels are but we love that they are perfect for eating right out of the bag as we are preparing our dessert.    There's also the benefit of not having to spend too much time in the kitchen. … [Read more...]

Warm Up This Holiday Season With Abuelita Hot Chocolate!

    The holidays are a great time to share traditions with families, friends, and other loved ones.  One of our favorite holiday traditions is curling up together and watching movies while enjoying a cup of hot chocolate.  From as far back as I can remember, my grandmother in Spain used to prepare hot chocolate for me and it always made me feel warm and happy.  I'm enjoying passing that family tradition down to my sons and, since they both love chocolate, they really enjoy it.    As you can see from the photos, they had a great time preparing their mugs of Abuelita hot chocolate.  They were literally slurping from and licking the spoons that they used to mix the hot chocolate.  Considering how cold it has gotten in New York City the last couple of days, it was the perfect treat to warm them up and the perfect opportunity to create lasting holiday memories together.    Abuelita comes in two varieties, Abuelita Granulado and Abuelita Instant.  Both pack a delicious punch, … [Read more...]

Nestlé Abuelita Hot Chocolate Review and Prize Pack Giveaway

       One of my fondest memories of growing up in Spain are the precious moments that I spent with my Grandmother enjoying "La merienda" with her and talking to her about my day in school.  The term "merienda" refers to a widely popular Latino custom.  It involves taking a break in the afternoon and having a snack in between lunch and dinner.  This is normally a bonding time where families enjoy a light meal as well as each other's company.     The hours between lunch and dinner can seem like a really long time when your stomach is growling.  La merienda definitely provides all of us with a solution to the problem of that afternoon craving.  One way to spend this time is to enjoy a delicious cup of hot chocolate along with some sweet pastries and share them with a close friend or family member.  It is wonderful to take a break and just "escape" for a few minutes.    Nestlé's Abuelita Hot Chocolate is a perfect "merienda" snack because it comes in convenient, single-serve … [Read more...]
