February Bakin’ Friends

by Erin

It’s Bakin’ Friends time! On the 6th of every month, members are given the name of the person for whom we will be baking for and also the secret ingredient required to use. Once we find out any food allergies and their shipping address, we get busy in the kitchen in order to ship out by the 16th. Then when we receive our own package from the Bakin’ Friends baking for us, they are subjected to a photo shoot before they get devoured! You should join us next month by e-mailing stephsbitebybite(at)gmail(dot)com with Bakin’ Friends in the subject by March 2nd! For more info please check out the Bakin’ Friends page.


In honor of Valentine’s Day, this month’s Bakin’ Friends secret ingredient was dark chocolate. And I was absolutely thrilled for Stephanie herself to be my Bakin’ Friend this month. I am constantly admiring the things she bakes on her blog Steph’s Bite by Bite.

She sent me these wonderful cookies called Dark Chocolate & Pretzel Oatmeal Cookies. As the name suggests, these are not your regular oatmeal cookies. They have crushed pretzels and dark chocolate M&Ms mixed in. Can you say, delicious?

I like microwaving them for about 10 seconds because it made them chewier. But I also am thinking about sandwiching them around some ice cream, which means I’ll probably need to make more!

You can also see these cookies on her blog, since I know you’ll want the recipe ;-). She wrote a lovely acrostic poem about them which I totally understand after trying them out for myself.

Those look super tasty! Your food/recipe swap sounds like so much fun, but I have so many food rules I think I’d just be too limiting on everyone else’s creativity :(

How sweet! They look absolutely delicious!! Hope you enjoyed every bite of them!
