I was contacted by Harvard Sweet Boutique a few weeks ago, initially because they wanted to share a recipe for Low-Carb Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies. Of course, if you're a long time reader, you know I'm allergic to nuts of all kinds, so I wasn't about to share a recipe for a food that, as my mom says, "offends me".
Instead, they sent over a bunch of goodies for me to try. My initial reaction? The packaging is so cute! My selection of nut-free goodies, came in a cute green polka dotted box with pink tissue. The package contained an assortment of brownies (salted caramel, mint chocolate fudge, to name a few) and cookies (oatmeal raisin, ginger molasses, etc).
I attempted to snap a few shots, but without opening the individually wrapped baked goods, I couldn't really get across how yummy they looked...so I'm using their shots instead.
Overall, I found the brownies a little too rich for my taste and was disappointed, because they were the desserts I was most excited about. The cookies, on the other hand- they were yummy! The Ginger molasses was definitely my favorite, with the oatmeal raisin coming in at a close second.
