I was in the local upscale grocery near my office (boy I'm in there alot) and I found this mix:
Cherrybrook Kitchen Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
I have heard such good things on the boards about their products, but I always took it with a grain of salt. Did people like it because it was the only thing their child could have, or was it really good?
I thought - what the heck- and tossed it in my cart. They obviously are aware of peanut allergy (look - it says Peanut Free! right on the box in big letters), so I'll give it a shot.
I have to say - this mix could not be easier to make. It was a great activity for an adult and a 3 year old. Just enough mixing and rolling into balls. And there's no eggs, so you can eat the batter without worrying if you are going to get salmonella.
She declared them 'delicious!' and proceeded to eat 3 of them.
The only thing that struck me was that they were a little cakey in texture, and you can definitely tell that you are eating a mock chocolate chip of sorts.
Later on we fed them to my brother, who is a major foodie and he thought they were 'rich' and 'fabulous'. I chuckled a little bit and told my sister in law that I would love to give her the recipe (but I never told her they were from a mix so my secret's still safe). If she only knew :)
But overall, I will definitely be trying more of these mixes in the future. Especially with one of Bella's good pals at daycare having a milk allergy. He'll love these.
Way to go Cherrybrook Kitchen!
