Bakin’ Friends

bakinfriends200

This is the first month that I joined Stephanie over at Steph’s Bite by Bite for Bakin’ Friends. Stephanie has organized a baking group where participants are given a secret ingredient to incorporate into a baked good and to send that baked good to another person/blogger that they are paired with.

“Bakin’ Friends is all about connecting bakers, bloggers, foodies, and people who just like sweets! We’re in the business of baking and making friends!”

This month’s secret ingredient was peppermint and I was lucky enough to get paired with Stephanie herself. Stephanie sent me an adorable card with the recipe for her Peppermint 7-Layer Bars along with a large batch of the bars. My box arrived just before Christmas and I was able to share these yummy bars with friends and family for the holidays. Peppermint was the perfect ingredient for December since it is reminiscent of the holiday season.

These yummy bars have about everything you could ask for in them-Oreos, white chocolate chips, peppermint M & M’s, white chocolate peppermint pretzels, marshmallows and sweetened condensed milk.

I’m so glad I decided to join Bakin’ Friends. Below is a little more information if you are interested in joining in as well!

On the 6th of each month you will be paired up with a Bakin’ Friend. You’ll contact your newly appointed Bakin’ Friend to see if they have any allergies or dietary restrictions and you’ll also get their mailing address. Then you’ll bake your goody and have it in the mail and on its way to your new Bakin’ Friend by the 16th of each month. You’ll of course want to include the recipe for your baked goody so that your new friend can recreate the yummies at home! How cute would it be if we all did our recipes on vintage recipe cards, just sayin’!

Then, on the last day of the month we’ll post about who our new Bakin’ Friend is, what they baked, and how they used the secret ingredient. (This group right now is only open to US and Canadian residents. US residents will be paired with US residents, and Canadian residents with Canadian residents)

Are you ready to make some new friends? Then send an email to stephsbitebybite(at)gmail(dot)com with Bakin’ Friends in the subject. Emails MUST be received before the 2nd of each month so that I have time to get all the match ups done. Please make sure to include your full name, your email address, your blog name and URL (if applicable), and whether you live in the US or Canada.

I sent Peppermint Meltaways to Abby. Abby isn’t a blogger so I’ll be posting about the cookies I sent to her soon!
