This is going to be a super quick giveaway turnaround. Normally I give 7-10 days for giveaways. I would really love to get these fabulous kits in the hands of some super creative people ASAP.
If you read my blog on a regular basis you’ll know that I’ve been giving away these cool “kits” from OREO to help five lucky winner “Play Up Dessert” with OREO cookies. I really love what the winners have come up with this far. Sadly, not all kit winners have submitted photos of their creations to me like I had hoped they would. The whole idea of these great kits is to see what fun things people can create for dessert using one of our most beloved cookies – OREOS!
I have FIVE of the December Kits to giveaway to FIVE lucky readers. Before you enter please take this into consideration. I would LOVE to see what kind of great dessert you create with the kit. Please only enter if you are willing to create something and e-mail a photo to me and show me what you made. As an added incentive one of the kit winners who submit a photo will win a $100 gift card. I don’t know about you but a $100 would certainly come in handy.
This month’s kit is wonderful! I had wanted to make chocolate dipped OREOS but due to my not-so-lovely stomach bug and a few other things I was unable to gather up the supplies I needed. What I had planned on doing was taking the holiday edition OREO cookies and dip some in milk chocolate and others in white chocolate. Then I wanted to sprinkle some broken candy cane pieces on them. The kit comes with peppermint flavored candy cane sprinkles. I probably would have used them too.
Where do I begin with this kit? First of all the container is great for storing holiday decorations in. I plan on re-purposing the container to sore some of our Christmas tree ornaments in. It’s too cute not to reuse.
The kit came with two packages of Winter edition OREO cookies. They are the ones with the red cream in the middle.
My kids pounced on them like they haven’t eaten in weeks. I told them not to eat all the OREOS because I wanted to do something with them (dip them) but my kids didn’t hear me say that because half the cookies in one of the packages were gone by the next morning (I think my hubby might have helped them a bit).
Also included in the kit are the following goodies…
– Lovely Crate & Barrel Bowls in festive designs. I plan on using these to put nuts, candy and other goodies in and leave out for guests to enjoy.
– Place cards and a place card holder.
– 2 packages of Winter OREO cookies
– Peppermint flavored candy candy sprinkles
– Food coloring
– Star shaped cookie cutter
– Gift boxes (great for sharing freshly baked holiday cookies with)
– OREO recipe book
Thinking about the contents of this kit, can you think of something creative to make with them? What kind of an OREO dessert or treat can use make? Of course you are more then welcome to get as creative as possible. The recipe book is filled with great recipe ideas. You don’t have to use the kit contents (but it would be nice).
I still plan on making the dipped OREOS. Maybe I’ll make them for Christmas day dinner with my father and stepmother. We need to bring dessert and this would be a fun way to Play Up Dessert with OREO cookies. We’re also going to a friend’s house for dinner on the 29th. I’m going to see what other OREO dessert I can create and bring with us.
Now for the giveaway. I want to get the addresses of all the winners ASAP tomorrow (12/20/12) so I’m making the contest end at 3:00 PM EST and I will pull and contact the winners immediately. If you enter please check your e-mail around 3-3:00 and if you are a winner please get back to me right away so the kit can be mailed out on Friday.
PLEASE ONLY ENTER if you can take a photo of your creation and e-mail it to me. It’s no fun not having great photos to show everyone what great things they can create with OREOS. If you think you can’t do that for whatever reason, please reconsider entering so that someone who can share a photo can win. I’m not going to fault you if you don’t. I know life happens. Trust me, I’ve been having a lot of “life happens” going on in my life recently.
I’m going to make this entry really easy. Simply leave a comment on this post and tell me what you THINK you might want to create if you are one of the kit winners – or – if you don’t have any ideas yet simply tell me why you would like to win the kit?
This giveaway is open to US residents only and will end at 3:00 PM (EST) on December 20, 2012.
