Valentine’s Day Gift Guide Giveaway: Baked Explorations & More!

by Jamie on February 13, 2011

I can honestly say that I could spend hours in a Williams-Sonoma store. I find their selection to be the epitome of a baker’s heaven!

It can pretty much be assumed that if a product has come from Williams-Sonoma, that it will be well-made and a great addition to anyone’s kitchen. With that being said, I have the perfect Williams-Sonoma sponsored giveaway for all you brownie lovers and just in time for Valentine’s Day.

The first component of this giveaway is 3 boxes of Baked Brownie Mixes. Baked Brownie Mixes come in three flavors: Deep Dark Brownie, Peanut Butter, and Brown Sugar Blondie. If you’re not familiar with Baked, it is a popular bakery in Brooklyn, New York that was founded by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito. Baked has been featured on the Martha Stewart Show, Oprah’s Favorite Things, and Throwdown with Bobby Flay!

Wanting to create the ultimate brownie, Matt and Renato developed a recipe using Guittard Cocoa Rouge Chocolate. The result: a rich, gooey brownie showcasing the deep, dark splendor of world-class chocolate. These amazing brownies are perfect for that everyday indulgence or as an impressive dessert for entertaining.

Also, included in this giveaway is one of the two Baked Cookbooks: Baked Explorations. This lovely cookbook contains over 75 recipes with over 40 color photos (you know this girl is a big fan of the photos) that will leave you drooling and plotting your weekend baking for months in advance. I’m telling you, I have had this cookbook for a little over two weeks and it’s already full of post it flags. How can you resist recipes like Caramel Apple Cake and Sweet and Salty Brownies?

What good would delicious Baked Brownie Mixes and the cookbook be without a rocking pan to bake in? So, we have also included a Williams-Sonoma Traditional Finish 9 x 13 inch Rectangular Cake Pan. If you have never experienced baking in a Williams-Sonoma pan, you are definitely missing out. The aluminum-coated steel assists in even baking, so those brownies and cakes that you make using your new cookbook will come out baked to perfection.

I like the look of the malted cake! (Fluffy malted flavored white cake layered with milk chocolate whipped ganache.)

The Sweet & Salty tart looks delicious.
A sweet tart dough, with a fleur de sel caramel filling. Topped with a rich chocolate ganache.

I would choose the Oatmeal cookies! My dad is always asking me to bake him some, (instead of the unhealthier chocolatey ones I make), but I never got around to it! I would love to surprise him with this :)

Amanda February 18, 2011 at 4:38 pm
