#35 – Lisa: “I am an e-mail subscriber.”
Congratulations, Lisa! Thank you to everyone who entered.
I went to my first food bloggers’ conference in Miami back in may through BlogHer and had the best time and made SO many new friends. It was cool being around hundreds and hundreds of other people who are just as
obsessed passionate about food and in the same field of “work”. I say “work” in quotes because this has never felt like a job to me but more of a fun hobby for the past 3 years.
There was a sponsor with a booth set up at the conference with a sign for this Sheila G’s Brownie Brittle. I had never heard of it before but was immediately intrigued. I happened to have my hubby with me at the time and they offered both of us samples. It was love at first site. I knew right away that I had to get the word out on this deliciousness as soon as I can. I was happy when the kind people at Sheila G’s Brownie Brittle reached out to me a few weeks after the conference asking if I wanted to do a giveaway on my blog. Of course, I said “yes” 🙂
I was sent a sampler pack to try. Their flavors are: Chocolate Chip, Mint Chocolate Chip, Toffee Crunch and Salted Caramel – all of which I’m giving away today! My favorite was the salted caramel and my hubby’s favorite was the mint chocolate chip (which is surprising because normally neither of us are too keen on mint.) They are all absolutely delicious! The salted caramel had just enough salt and sweet. The Mint Chocolate Chip actually has a similar taste to an Andes dinner mint.
The brownie brittle is made with natural ingredients and is just like having a whole bag of crispy brownie edges, without having to bake! You get a great brownie flavor with the crunch of a cookie. I give this product a big thumbs up and you will too.
You will just die over these parfaits. In my opinion, the ideal dessert combines the flavors of chocolate and peanut butter so when I came up with this rich parfait treat I knew it was going to be good. They are amazingly good and a great after-dinner dessert to serve to company because they look all fancy with those layers and all! The Brownie Brittle made a great “crust” to these parfaits and I think you will agree. The more chocolate, the better, right?! Scroll down to get the recipe and enter the giveaway!
- 1 - 4 oz. bag Sheila G's Brownie Brittle, crushed, flavor of choice (can use graham crackers if you can't get Brownie Brittle)
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 (8 ounce) block cream cheese, softened
- 4 tablespoons powdered sugar
- 1 (8 ounce) tub of whipped topping (such as Cool Whip)
- 1 (12 ounce) bag milk chocolate chips
- ½ cup milk
- Combine the peanut butter, cream cheese, and powdered sugar in a large bowl.
- Mix together until combined (mixture will be thick).
- Stir in the whipped topping. Save about a cup to add on top at the end (this is optional). You can also added more crushed Brownie Brittle to the top. Up to you.
- In a separate microwave-safe bowl, add the milk and chocolate chips. Microwave in 30 second intervals stirring after each cycle until chocolate is completely melted. (About 1 minute 30 seconds).
- Start with a layer of crumbled Brownie Brittle.
- Add a layer of the peanut butter mixture (I used a piping bag to make it easier and less messy.)
- Add a layer of the chocolate ganache.
- Add a layer of whipped topping (I did this with a spoon).
- Repeat layers enough times to use up all of the ingredients evenly.
- Top with whipped topping (optional) and a piece of Brownie Brittle.
- Cover with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator.
