A week or so ago, I was contacted by a marketer from See’s Candies asking if I’d like to receive a free sample of my choice to use in a dessert. In return, they asked that I mention their Easter candy is now available. I know that some bloggers may feel uncomfortable with this type of solicitation, but I’m not having a hard time with this one. My policy is if I like the product or find it useful I will put it out there. I’ve always done this, even though, up till now, I never got anything in exchange.
I have to say, it’s pretty funny that a chocolate candy company would offer to send me a free sample. To use in a dessert, no less. I’m not much of a chocolate fan and I tend to stay out of the sweet kitchen. So I guess it shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that I chose the Victoria Toffee. When I got it, the first thing I did was crush some up to sprinkle on top of homemade vanilla ice cream. Not quite the most creative way to use it, but it tasted simply fantastic. I am planning on using some of it in a cake/torte of some type. And if the stars line up right, I’ll be able to post about that soon.
Got any other good ideas? They sent me a pound of the toffee, so I've got a bit to work with. Let me know quick, because I have a feeling that I won’t be able to keep the candy monsters away for very long.
