Maple Bacon marshmallows, a pot of gold and more chocolate

Get toasted with Plush Puffs, invites makers of these big, square gourmet marshmallow makers. Mochaccino is my favorite limited edition flavor right out of the box, but I followed the good toasting advice. Vanilla Granola Chip and Toasty Coconut were toasted over candles or melted in the oven to top apples and cookies for desserts and breakfasts at my house. I can’t imagine why anyone would blink an eye over Maple Bacon. It’s like the last savory, creamy sweet bites of your pancake and sides at a greasy spoon diner. Who could resist? Not me. The coconut is pictured in a chocolate fountain. That would be almost too much goodness!

In the how-do-they-do-it category, consider UV Candy Bar, a chocolate-caramel flavored vodka. I’ve been considering it an amazing flavoring in banana-berry smoothies, in yogurt and over ice cream. Below is a ridiculously-easy recipe for a milky treat. But also consider that UV has other amazing flavors, such as apple. Just a tablespoon of  Candy Bar goes a long way to upscale desserts.

UV Pot of Gold
1 part UV Candy Bar
2 parts milk
1 piece butterscotch hard candy
Serve over ice

UV Irish Joe
2 parts UV Espresso
1 pint stout beer
Serve in pint glass

UV Sweet Green Gaelic
2 parts lemonade
1 part UV Sweet Green Tea
Serve over ice

Chocolate trumps
Nielsen-Massey was trying to tell me about  showcasing its Organic Fairtrade Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract at  a natural products expo, but I wanted to hear more about the chocolate. They wanted readers to they are the first vanilla manufacturer to offer a certified Organic Fairtrade Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract. The products are certified by Fairtrade Canada, a national, nonprofit Fairtrade certification organization and member of Fairtrade International. To qualify involves fair pricing, sustainable varming and shade-grown beans. You can get  this cold-extraction with more than 300 complex flavors  in little bottles or by the 55-gallon drum.
I wanted to hear more about Pure Chocolate Extract with  water, 37 percent alcohol and cocoa extract. I’m inhaling sweet vapors from this little bottle as I write this. I enjoyed it with just-picked berries and yogurt and plan to use the rest over time, maybe in some sort of cream frosting. The planning is part of the process. Nielsen-Massey also gets pure with almond, orange, lemon, coffee and peppermint and offers orange blossom and rose water.  The company is headquartered in Waukegan, Illinois, with production facilities in Waukegan and Leeuwarden, The Netherlands.
