Mrs Freshley Recipes for the Holidays + Reader Giveaway #HolidaysSweeter

FullSizeRender (27)

I was sent a few of Mrs. Freshley’s Donut products including Mrs Freshley’s Donuts Sticks, Mrs Freshley’s Honey Buns and Mrs Freshley’s Mini Donuts.  I was then challenged to create a recipe using these products and I chose to make a snowmen out of the Mini Donuts.

IMG_1468

The kids got a good laugh out of my creation.  I guess using Chocolate chips would probably have been better for his eyes but I still think he is cute.

Holiday-Donut-Sticks-small

Their recipe for Holiday Donut Sticks looks like something that would be a huge hit with my kids as well.  Just dip half of each of the donut sticks into melted “Melting Chocolate”, lay it on a plate and sprinkle on some holiday sprinkles then allow to cool and harden.  Seems like it would be super easy to do and taste GREAT.

Merry-Berry-Honey-Bun-Trifle-small

The Merry Berry Honey Bun Trifle also looked really good. Cut honey buns into bite sizes pieces and layer with a mixture of strawberries, raspberries, sugar and vanilla extract.  Top with whipped cream and you are ready to enjoy it.  You can see these recipe and others on their website HERE.

Now its your turn to be a part of their “Make The Holidays Sweeter” social media contest.  Tag photos showing how Mrs. Freshley’s makes your holidays sweeter with #HolidaysSweeter and @mrsfreshleys on Instagram and Twitter for a chance to win free Mrs. Freshley’s treats.

Comment: trees give us oxygen some provide friut, , nut, spices(cinnamon), the cacao tree gives us the much desired chocolate ingredient. a must for a lot of people! they provide wood to built with, wood for heating with.. their roots hold the soil together to keep down erosion. they provide homes to the creatures and the bugs, even tell us where north is! we trim them, decorate our yards and homes with them……….. beavers build dams with them, which helps to form ponds for other wild life, not just homes for the beavers. and the fish………. the people would settle around the ponds………..a win win situation, that nature inspired. trees are very essential to our survival on this planet, we all need to take care of them and respect what they give to all of us. we will all survive better this way.
