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.

Copenhagens. I'm a native Seattleite and our IKEA always has these tasty treats. They're pretty much a must-have for me whenever I stop in. Definitely worth trying to duplicate at home.

You are all making me hungry. Such interesting , delicious recipe ideas we'd never thought of before. S'mores bars, lava cake with hazelnut filling. So much fun. Many thanks for your enthusiasm. Priscilla from Love'n Bake

I'd make a 3-layer chocolate cake using the Hazelnut praline between the layers. Would also mix a bit into the mocha frosting that wouls encase all that goodness!

I'd make my very first macaroons with the almond paste!

I would love to try croissants filled with the almond paste - yum!

Thanks for the giveaway!

I am new at baking and decorating, I hve been looking for great fillings for cupcakes, this sounds like a great option.

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterVaton

I would make twice baked almond croissants with the almond schmear.
I love eating them @ Bakery Nouveau so I should try my hand @ my own. :)

Ohhhhhh! That Orange Coconut Almond Cake looks absolutely divine!
Even with the temperature hovering around 100 here in Arkansas, I believe I'd heat up the kitchen for that one!

I think I would use that chocolate "schmear" filling and use it in a cinnamon roll recipe.

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterKaci

I would use the almond paste for an apple pie recipe I have that calls for almond paste in a layer on top of the bottom crust. It's always sounded good to me, I just never have almond paste!


June 17 | Unregistered CommenterMelissa

I would put the almond in with a crumb topping to put over a blueberry pie.
Blueberry + almond + crumb topping = heaven

a blondie with a praline swirl!

June 17 | Unregistered Commenterkitty

i would try swirling the almond or praline filling into moist brownie batter. yummm!!!

June 17 | Unregistered Commenterangie

Maybe filled crescent rolls, they would be really good with the chocolate and hazelnut together. or a layer cake, yellow with chocolate filling.

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterSamantha

A giant Chocolate Cake!! Maybe with each layer having a different filling! So much can be done with their fillings! I would live to win this sampling!! Thank you for sharing with us!!

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterLauri

I want to try making some filled croissants!

June 17 | Unregistered Commenterannalene

The Italian Almond Jam Tart and that Almond Paste Buttercream are both calling my name!

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterErica

I'd used the hazelnut praline in a layer cake!

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterAmy

I would use the chocolate on mini chocolate chip cheesecake bites.

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterKatie

almond-vanilla cake!

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterMelynda

I've actually used this stuff before - it's great! I used the hazelnut praline to make a hazelnut cream filling for some Kinder Bueno cupcakes I invented. They were rather delicious if I do say so myself!

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterKelly

Oh, where to begin first! They all look so yummy! I think I'd have to begin with my family recipe for amaretto cheesecake - so divine! Then, maybe a strawberry rhubarb pie with some almond paste to add little bit of flavor that sets it apart. Thank you for the chance to win these!

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterDebra

Without a doubt I would do a chocolate layer cake with the Hazelnut Praline. Absolutely my favorite!

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterJen

I would like to try the Chocolate Blackout Crumb Bars. They look delicious!

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterChrish

Some stuffed cinnamon rolls might be good with one of these fillings.
