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.

Almond and pear cupcakes for summer, for sure!

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterCourtney

At first I would try something simple..like an almond pound cake or tea cake. There are so many yummy sounding recipes to use this product in.

Praline everything! Praline cookies, praline ice cream, praline truffles, praline ganache, praline streusel for muffins! yum yum yum i love praline!!!

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterGaby

I would love to try the almond schmear and plop it on brownies or ice cream.... or IN ice cream!

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterMeg

I would love to make almond/cheese croissants - Oh Yum! Have a great week-end and thanks for give-away!

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterCharlene

I'm not sure WHAT exactly, but something coffee flavored with the hazelnut.

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterMary

Not original at all, but I would make some filled cupcakes. Yum!

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterStaci

I'd be inspired to make chocolate croissants, or even chocolate hazelnut croissants!

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterJeanne

Oh my heavens I think I would make the already DELICIOUS Magic 7 Layer Bars. I think it would make them I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E!!!

I would for sure make the Berry Berry Almond Crisp using the almond filling. I grow my own raspberries and loganberries, so I would definitely try it with those. I go to the mountains and pick wild huckleberries. I would try peaches, pears and apples, as well, since those are all grown here where I live.

Mmm, the hazelnut praline filling in crepes. With strawberries. And bananas.

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterCandin

Maybe just eat them on graham crackers? That's better than straight from the jar, right?

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterJackie

I would try to incorporate the hazelnut praline paste into an Italian Meringue Buttercream and the almond schmear would be great for homemade Bear Claws. The chocolate schmear would be amazing in Pain au Chocolat, I'm willing to bet. And the almond paste would definitely go in a tart as frangipane!

June 17 | Unregistered CommenterTonya

i would make rice krispy treats.. and spread half the mix in the bottom of the pan.. top with the chocolate schmear.. and then top that off with the other half of the rice krispy treat mixture.. thus making a rice krispy chocolate schmear filled bar... sounds yummy!

June 18 | Unregistered CommenterJani

I think I would have to try using the hazelnut or the chocolate (or both?) in place of the ganache that I use in the middle of my little shortbread cookie sandwiches. NOM NOM NOM!

June 18 | Unregistered CommenterMaggi

Definitely rugelach for that chocolate. Yum!

June 18 | Unregistered CommenterGina

Hazelnut praline filling in between two sugar cookies-- that sounds PHENOMENAL. : )

June 18 | Unregistered CommenterJuls

I would make a Hazelnut filled cake w/ fresh strawberries using this product.

June 18 | Unregistered CommenterBaine

I think I'd try whoopie pies or linzer cookies... Lots of options though...

June 18 | Unregistered CommenterAmy S.

I'd love to make the macaroons

June 18 | Unregistered CommenterMargie

I would love the try the chocolate hazelnut filling as a rich decadent filling for a chocolate cake - somehow I need to have chocolate mousse in between those layers too...yum!

June 18 | Unregistered CommenterSusie

As a transplanted New Yorker I'd love to make some rugalach. Yumm...

June 19 | Unregistered CommenterPinkLibrarian

I would try out a delicious layered cake!

June 19 | Unregistered CommenterMary

A hot out of the oven calzone filled with ricotta and Nutella and sprinkled with a generous amount of powdered sugar like one we tried in Italy. I'd love to try to make this incorporating any one of the fillings!

June 20 | Unregistered CommenterSheila

I'd go for a simple cookie to spread any of these on. After that, I'd try to experiment with a filled cupcake - or maybe incorporate some into the frosting. Thanks for the giveaway.
