Baked By Me! Review & GIVEAWAY!!


Boo has got really interested in making cookies, but by the time we've found a recipe and weighed everything out I normally discover we're missing a vital ingredient or he wants something a little more exciting to give to Grandad!


Baked By Me, offer a variety of tasty cookie mixes to tempt you into the kitchen! Whether you're looking to impress the parent teacher association with your baking ability or just have a special treat at home their mixes will make your mouth water before you even start baking! We chose to try the Caramel Chocolate Cookie mix as Boo wanted something chocolatey and I loved the sound of the caramel twist!




As you can see the mix arrives in great jar, which I instantly started to wonder how I could recycle when we'd made up the cookies!





Boo loved helping to make the cookies, all we needed to add was some butter and an egg, then the mixture was easy enough for Boo to mix by hand!





Unfortunately Boo and I got a bit carried away and forgot to photograph how yummy the dough looks, and instead we hurried to cut the cookies out and get them in the oven! 




This is the what the cookies looked like while cooling, I had intended to take some photographs of them looking really pretty, but they didn't survive long enough! The cookies were super tasty and by taking them out at the minimum cooking recommended time we ended up with the perfect cookie for out taste - slightly soft and chewy! I think they'd make a great gift either as the jar ready to make, or made up and presented in tissue with a beautiful ribbon - you could even present them in the jar if you remember to cut the cookies small enough!


The lovely Baked By Me have offered the chance for a reader to win a £10 voucher to spend on their site all you have to do is follow the simple steps on the widget below:

  44. I assume I could use my voucher on partyware rather than cookie mixes? If so, I'd choose the Pastries & pearls cake stand because it's very pretty, and wonderfully retro http://www.bakedbyme.net/Pastries_Pearls_Cakestand_p/prl-cakestand.htm
    If I could only spend the voucher on cookie mixes, I'd go for the triple chocolate toblerone mix shown here http://www.bakedbyme.net/triple_toblerone_cookie_mix_p/tt.htm

  45. http://www.bakedbyme.net/Marvellous_Maltesers_Cookie_Mix_p/mm.htm would be my choice - I love Maltesers
