CLOSED: Sweet Giveaway: Win a Love n Bake Sampler Pack!

Free stuff is the best--especially when it's sweet and delicious and when it has the potential to make you very, very, happily, fat.

This is all to say: how about a giveaway? Love n Bake, a manufacturer of what I can attest are completely delicious fillings for baking, has kindly offered a sampler pack of some of their most popular products for one lucky winner! It consists of a can each of almond filling, chocolate "schmear" filling (which one would use to make Blackout Crumb bars!), hazelnut praline filling, and almond paste. 

So, first things first. This giveaway is only open in the US--but other than that, entry is open! How do you get yourself in the running? Simply leave a comment letting me know what baking project you'd try first with these sweet fillings (don't worry, you won't be judged on originality--this is just to satisfy this spy's curiosity. Oh, and if you need ideas, get some on the Love n Bake blog). The giveway will close next Friday, June 25, at 12 pm PST, and a winner will be announced shortly thereafter.

So here goes: What sweet recipe would these fillings inspire you to try?

Update: the winner! We have a winner! Katie, who is going to put her prize to good use: "I would use the chocolate on mini chocolate chip cheesecake bites." Nom! Find Katie online here.

I've been wanting to try a Bakewell or similar tart with almond paste...this would be the motivation I need!

Your Dulce de Leche Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars are crazy-good-looking, so I'd be tempted to see if I could work some of these spreads into them! Thanks for the opportunity. You are generous. And sweet.

I would try to make a coffee cake, especially with the almond filling. Also kolichs. I only make the fruit version but I would totally make the nut versions with these filling.

June 16 | Unregistered CommenterJoy

I'd experiment using them in cupcakes and/or different types of frosting to go with my cupcakes. Mmm, cupcakes.

June 16 | Unregistered CommenterJessie

Oh, without a doubt, I would use these fillings for cupcakes and cream puffs. So many ideas going though my head! I really want to try the Hazelnut, YUM, my favorite. I would put it between my fabulous chocolate cake.

I just got a brownie book, so that might be an option and I've been wanting to do do something with almond cupcakes and fresh fruit. Many options available.

anything w/ almond paste...why am i too lazy to just purchase things on my own??

June 16 | Unregistered CommenterLauren

Definitely the Chocolate Hazelnut Brownies! Or maybe I would just grow fat and happy with chocolate schmear crescent rolls!

June 16 | Unregistered CommenterErin

Homemade sweet potato 'cinnamon' rolls - only instead of butter, sugar and cinnamon I'd use the schmears! Well, and maybe a little sugar and cinnamon.

June 16 | Unregistered CommenterAshlae

I'd like to try thumbprint cookies! I think all of the flavors might work...what do you think?!

June 16 | Unregistered CommenterLiz

June 16 | Unregistered CommenterLaurel G

brownies, cheesecake and cookies.

June 16 | Unregistered CommenterSara Pea

Oooh those all look/sound so good! I would love to make a cake filling with the Hazelnut Praline schmear. Mmm!

June 16 | Unregistered CommenterCourtney

let's seeee! the possibilities are endless! :)

for the almond schmear, would make petit fours with pound cake and royal frosting!
for the chocolate schmear, perhaps some cookie sandwiches. muahaha. inverted oreos anyone?
for the hazelnut praline, hazelnut macarons!
and with the almond paste, perhaps some lovely marzipan-like decorations for simply best chocolate cupcakes :)

June 16 | Unregistered Commenterdumdeedumdi

almond pillow cookies...yum!

June 16 | Unregistered Commenterarlene

Oh my goodness, what WOULDN'T I make with this. I'd like to just rub it on my face! Each variety sounds soooo delicious!! I'd like to use the praline filling with my maryanne cake pan and do some good!

June 16 | Unregistered CommenterAndrea

Drat! I am a Canuck and not eligible to win, but I'd love to use that chocolate schmear (so fun to say) in a no-bake cheesecake. Schmear, cream cheese, cool-whip... mmm...

June 16 | Unregistered CommenterJulie

Chocolate babka!

June 16 | Unregistered CommenterMeg

The almond paste would go into a cherry almond tart!

June 16 | Unregistered CommenterSpycandy

Hmmm I've been wanting to try these fillings out for a while now. Are you reading my mind Cakespy?? :D I just got the Artisan Bread in 5 mins a day book and I'd love to try out one of their sweet pastries so this filling would be perfect for that.

June 16 | Unregistered CommenterKristin

Wow, I'm thinking some yummy layered blondies with chocolate schmear in the middle.

June 16 | Unregistered Commenterangien24

All of these would be delicious stuffed into a croissant!
