CHOCOLATE DRIED FRUIT & NUT CRACKERS w/ a GINGERSNAP SPREAD! These are my official entry in a Baking Contest!! Check out the details below & gosh I’d love for some love & MEGA daily voting on these lil’ gems! 🙏🏻
These were very fun to create & I think any holiday charcuterie board would be served well by sharing them! They’re both VEGAN & GLUTEN FREE too! Twice baked, similar to a biscotti & such a great texture!
Let’s make a deal!! If you comment “CRACKER” - I’ll send you a direct link to where you can vote for them & then you’ll be right at the recipe so you can make them!
To VOTE for them you will need to log in to your free @foodsocial.io account or create a new one, then vote! That’s it! So easy peasy!! ✅
You can of course head to the link in bio & find your way there as well, but I’m happy to help you out. Keep in mind, I’m sending DM’s with the link manually, there isn’t another app doing it for me, so please be patient!
Baking contest is sponsored by: @pascha.chocolate @primalpalate & @foodsocial.io - a HUGE thank you to all three! This really has been so much fun!!

🍹 FROSTED CRANBERRIES - as in the FROSTY variety!! So easy to make, freeze & keep on hand this holiday season! Use them to top off sparkling water, mocktails or cocktails! They add a lovely pop of color & a festive look to any cold beverage.
Because in the fast paced holiday season, maybe you didn’t prepare cute frozen ice cubes ahead of time & you still want to be a festive hostess/host in a moment’s notice! These cute lil’ frosted cranberries will save the day!
Check out the “frosty” details below & stay tuned to & follow my Food Social page! I’ve got a few upcoming “cranberry” forward recipes/beverages to keep you festive all season long. Check out the link in bio to follow along there & thank you!
🍹 rinse about ½ lb of fresh cranberries, allowing as much water to drain off as possible, give that colander/strainer several good shakes.
🍹 add to a shallow dish & sprinkle with about 2 tbsp of organic sugar (or sugar of choice) tossing to coat.
🍹 place cranberries on another parchment lined, freezer safe, shallow pan & sprinkle about another 1-2 tbsp of sugar on top, give the tray a lil’ shake then place in the freezer.
🍹 they freeze quickly & can be used in so many ways...add a little sprig of mint for a pop of color if you’d like, but certainly not required!
TIP: before rinsing, inspect the cranberries for any squished/sad cranberries & toss, that way, once they’re frozen you’re not topping your visitors’ drink with any questionable frosted cranberries!

🌺 HIBISCUS SYRUP - this luscious syrup is sweetened with only honey & has just a couple other ingredients. Perfect for the holiday season not only because of the color, but the taste!! The combo is like the love child of a cranberry & a cherry, truly so unique!
It’s easy to make & so DELISH...and while the hibiscus is a flower it’s got a more earthy taste & is not flowery.
TASTY WAYS TO USE:
➡️ drizzle on your holiday cakes or pies or even on that yogurt parfait
➡️ give your mocktails or cocktails a tasty kiss of flavor
➡️ mix it ½ & ½ with water, freeze into ice cubes & you have the perfect addition to your sparkling water
➡️ add a couple tbsp to your waffle/pancake batter
😋 ….so many possibilities!

Do you BRÛLÉE your GRAPEFRUIT?? When pink grapefruit are in season it’s a must try!! It’s a fun way to add some flare to your breakfast routine & it’s so delicious!
Pre-segment your grapefruit, add a lil’ sprinkle of salt (yessss, don’t skip that) then a yummy sprinkle of coconut sugar (or sugar of choice) & broil! We used our air fryer, since it is a multifunction from @cuisinart
Save this one for later, grapefruit season is headed our way!!
And...if you’d like a sneak peek at a grapefruit vinaigrette coming soon, drop a comment “salad” & I’ll share it ahead of time with you! 🤫
The handy tool I use is a grapefruit knife from Pampered Chef that I’ve had for decades, not sure if they even have them anymore? 🤔
