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 would make my sister a cake for her birthday.

I recently tried adding a filling to my lollicakes and everyone loved the addition! So I would try some new fillings like almond paste to do a rainbow cookie lollicake...

I would love to combine these for a brownie/blondie layer bar! Yum.

I would try a chocolate croissant!

I'd love to try out the pear and almond tart from smitten kitchen with the almond paste!

I would make some homemade cookies and smear some hazelnut praline filling on them and make something resembling an oreo.

These flavors are making my mouh water!

I would absolutely love to try making the Blackout Cake Crumb bars. They look amazing.

i would love to make homemade perfect rugala but i'm too lazy. i would make some kind of fake rugala with these yummy fillings.

I think the almond filling would be wonderful used in spice cupcakes.

I love different kinds of buttercream, so the Almond Paste Buttercream would be one I would try first. Maybe use the hazelnut praline for a tasty pastry cream rendition, and since I'm a chocoholic, well, that chocolate filling would be everywhere, yum!

Mini almond pound cakes... Yuuuuuuuuum!

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterLizE

I would make layered graham cracker bars for July 4th.

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterDonna

Almond paste = macarons! But I kind of suck at making those still, so I'd probably figure out a way to work them into sammich cookies.

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterAnne

I think I would experiment by mixing the chocolate and hazelnut schmear together and then putting it in a moist layered chocolate cake!!!

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterMaria Ramundo

I would try them in a cinnamon roll or possibly enhance the flavor of cheesecake! I would definitely try the hazelnut and almond flavors first.

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterJori

I would totally make a marzipan cake of some kind. Yummy!

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterCheryl

I would definitely make the Almond Paste Buttercreme frosting that is on the blog page!!! It is on a Triple Ginger Cake with Almond Paste Buttercream and that sounds great, but the almond frosting is what really caught my eye!! I love almond flavoring and I love buttercreme frosting so I know that it would be heavenly.

The first thing I would try, OF COURSE, would have to be the blackout crumb bars. I use hazelnut paste to make some delicious mock rocher candy, so those would be a definite too!

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterTara

I've got a Dutch husband and the first thing I would make would most likely be Amsterdammertjes (aka Rondos). A delicious buttery pastry with an almond paste center. Mmmmm. There's a recipe here: http://notitievanlien.blogspot.com/2007/06/in-de-ban-van-de-ring.html (though I would leave the cherry out!)

I have tons of rhubarb and strawberries right now. I would love to make a strawberry rhubarb tart with almond filling and almond flavored pastry.

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterAlisa

Well, those blackout bars for one..haha.

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterMelissa

I would use this for Rugelach!!!

I'd try a wedding cake. YEA I SAID IT!

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterNisa

I would love to try them on my next layer cake...mmmm...

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterKristi

I think I would try some mini-empanadas with the hazelnut praline cream.
