Orange creamsicle cookie sandwiches, requested by my friend, Courtney.
I created custom baskets earlier in the holiday season and this past Sunday I attended a special yoga event where I donated a vegan treat of my choice and was commissioned to do 16 vegan/gluten-free "Butterfinger" favors (recipe adapted from Chocolate Covered Katie). The item I chose to donate was my "Reindeer Food." It's both vegan and gluten-free, packed with protein and super, super yummy :) I must have popped, like, three in my mouth after they came out of the oven but then I said to myself, Hey! These aren't for you! Stop eating them or there won't be any left to bring in!! So I listened...to myself...and stopped.
In my excitement baking I TOTALLY forgot to take a picture of the "Reindeer Food" so, fellow readers, you will have to use your imaginations. Here is the recipe:
Chocolate-Dipped Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles
Clockwise, from left: Brownie cookies, walnut fudge, pumpkin roll, "Speculoos" cookies, peanut butter pretzel truffles and macaroons.
