Some of my fondest memories as a child was the time I spent baking with my mother and grandmother. I use to love baking, especially desserts. Cakes and cookies were my favorite and a big bag of Robin Hood flour was always in the pantry. Raising my own family I kept the same tradition of family baking with my daughter using Robin Hood flour and creating scrumptious meals and treats.
During the holiday season, I love to bake decadent desserts that are mouthwatering and make you feel profoundly blissful. Christmas affords us the opportunity to hang out with family, bake and create our own special memories. This year we have lots of parties and get-togethers happening so I’ve prepared some yummy treats for these very special occasions.
Robin Hood’s recipe booklet, Bake Some Memories is filled with delectable ideas for your festive functions. I have umpteen little kids in my family that love to help me bake, so they chose several of the recipes from this tasty booklet.
All the recipes are clearly written with easy to follow instructions and they were so much fun to make. If you don’t have the Bake Some Memories recipe booklet, no problem, there is a recipe section on their website. What I really like is that all the ingredients are easy to find in every grocery store so creating your holiday treats is simple and stress-free.
The first creation we made was the Chewy Bacon Butterscotch Cookies. As a vegan, I used substitutes for bacon, butter, and eggs. The cookies were soft, chewy and divinely delicious. The veggie bacon really tasted great with the butterscotch chips. Robin Hood Oats is one of the ingredients in this recipe, adding awesome fiber to this healthy snack.
Our second project was the Creamy Filled Chocolate Cupcakes. If you’re a chocolate lover you will dive into these rich delights. The kids enjoyed creating and decorating the cupcakes. This recipe calls for sour cream and there is a vegan substitute that tastes really good. These cupcakes were exquisite to taste and smell.
What are the holidays without gooey rich squares? Robin Hood has a delish recipe Sweet & Salty Chocolate Caramel Squares that will make you want more. This recipe calls for yummy Lindt chocolate and Eagle Brand Dulce de Leche Caramel flavored sauce. Everyone in my family loved these luscious squares. I thought this recipe might be a lot of work but it was surprisingly quick and fun to make.
Ice cream may be a favorite to top pies with but how about creating some Red Velvet Cupcake Cones? The kids had a blast making these. You simply make your cake batter and add 1/4 into the ice cream cone and bake. Then get creative and add any topping you like.
Although our results may not look exactly like the image in the recipe book, my family had the ultimate pleasure of being together and creating new and endearing Robin Hood memories. All our goodies were made with lots of love, joy and laughter and I will cherish those moments forever.
