With a steady stream of holiday parties from Thanksgiving all the way to the New Year, I want to make delicious desserts that are truly special to share with our friends and family.
I recently learned about Miss Jones Baking Co. and am so excited to share their products with you! Not only are their baking mixes and frostings completely amazing—they're certified organic, non-GMO, plant-based, responsibly sourced, and contain no artificial colors or flavors. Talk about guilt-free indulgence! Check out my creation:
Doesn’t that look amazing? I am so excited to surprise my boys with these later today! I also made chocolate waffles and topped it with ice cream, which is a guilty pleasure of mine, their chocolate cake mix made it so easy to do!
Want to enter the Bake-it-Better Challenge? Here's how:
Between November 11 and December 23, Miss Jones Baking Co. is holding the Bake-it-Better Challenge, which gives you the chance to win a Grand Prize worth over $1,500—including a $1,000 gift card, the full line of Miss Jones products, a KitchenAid Mixer, William-Sonoma Goldtouch Baking Set, Scharffen Berger Chocolates, and much more!
Plus, every entry means $1 donated to the SF-Marin Food Bank. At this time of year, I know every little bit helps—so join in the fun and make the holiday season sweeter for everyone.
It's super easy to participate:
Step 1: Bake something fantastic using a Miss Jones baking mix or frosting. Get creative with ideas like pumpkin cake bars, chocolate and pecan cupcakes, or even maple and walnut sugar cookies. The Miss Jones website has great inspiration, and using one of their mixes makes it super easy.
Step 2: Take a photo of your beautiful treat and post it to Instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #betterwithmissjones. If you're submitting via Instagram, be sure to tag @missjonesco, too! If you're submitting via Facebook, be sure to post your entry directly onto the official Miss Jones Baking Co. Facebook page.
That's it! For each entry containing the hashtag #betterwithmissjones, $1 goes to the SF-Marin Food Bank—and you can enter multiple times!
