12 Days of Christmas: Day 7 - BKR Glass Water Bottle


This holidays season I've joined forces with 12 different brands to bring you 12 different giveaways!  I'll be partnering with a new brand each day leading up to Christmas! Together we'll be unveiling a new prize here on Cooking With Jax, so be sure to check back daily for your chance to win!  Over $2,000 worth of gifts are up for grabs so you're not going to want to miss out!  

This holiday promotion is a thank you to all of my readers - I appreciate each and every one of you!  Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog, try out new recipes, and leave comments!  It's because of you I'm able to follow my passion and turn my hobby of cooking and writing into a career.  This holiday promotion is a thank you to all of you.  As with any giveaway on Cooking With Jax, I've only included products that I absolutely love.  I'm really excited to bring you today's giveaway:


Overview: 
Today's giveaway is brought to you by BKR.  I've had a BKR water bottle for quite sometime, and it definitely gets a lot of use out of it throughout the year.  I hate the taste of plastic, metal, and pretty much anything other than ceramic or glass when it comes to water bottles.  Unfortunately, glass and ceramic tends to break very easily. I went through MANY glass water bottles before I finally found BKR.   Because BKR has a thick silicone sleeve around the bottle, it's well protected against damage. I've dropped mine several times and it's been fine.  I also really like the lid, which is the perfect shape to comfortable loop your thumb through. 

Giftability: 
BKR offers a variety of colours and designs for the silicone sleeve on their water bottles making this a great unisex gift for any of the men or women in your life!  They also make a great idea for a stocking stuffer!

Healthy Snack Box (Classic) by Healthy Surprise

Overview: 
Today's giveaway is brought to you by Healthy Surprise.  As many of you know, I'm a huge fan of subscription boxes.  Everyone loves presents, and this one comes in the mail and has hand selected for you each month.  Of all the subscription boxes I've tried, I would definitely say that Healthy Surprise is always filled with the best snacks.  Not only are they 100% GMO free (that scores big points with me) the quality of products are always excellent.  I always find a few favourites in addition to interesting products I've been thinking about trying.  While I don't always love all the items, that's part of the beauty of it.  You get to try a small sample for a fraction of the cost of buying a full size container of the item, like you would in the grocery store.   

The boxes come in two different sizes, classic and big box, and you can schedule them to arrive monthly, every other month, or quarterly.  They even have a chocolate lovers box! 

Giftability: 
I would definitely recommend this box if not for yourself, then as a gift for any of the foodies in your life! These snack boxes would make a great gift for anyone with specific diets (paleo, celiac, gluten free, vegetarian, vegan, wheat free, corn free, etc.) or anyone who is trying to eat healthier in the new year.  They make a great gift for people who like to try new things, and of course anyone who likes to try delicious snacks! 

Order by December 19th in order to receive by Christmas!

Brownie Mini Donut with White Chocolate Candy Cane Frosting


This post was sponsored by Hershey's Canada.  I received compensation in exchange for this post, though as always, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. 

I was was about to make brownies the other day, when my newly acquired mini donut mold caught the corner of my eye.  These were purely intended to be experimental, but what came out the oven tasted so delicious, I knew that they had to be shared immediately.  Not only are these brownie mini donuts the perfect size bite, the white chocolate candy cane frosting makes them a deliciously festive treat.

I've never tried making frosting with chocolate before, thinking that the chocolate would render the frosting to be heavy and thick.  On the contrary!  This frosting is so light and fluffy, I think I'll be trying different flavours of Chipits with this recipe the next time I need to frost a special treat (I'm looking at you butterscotch)!

Hershey's Canada has offered to send one lucky reader 20 bags of Chipits to help with their holiday baking!  Check out the bottom of this page for details on how to enter!  

Ingredients
- your favourite brownie mix (here's mine)

White Chocolate Candy Cane Frosting 
- 1 pkg Hershey's White Chocolate Chipits
- 2/3 cup butter, room temperature
- 3 cups icing sugar
- 1/4 cup milk
- 2 large candy canes

Directions
Start by preparing the batter for your favourite brownie mix.  


Scoop brownie batter into an icing bag (a sandwich baggie will work in a pinch!).  Cut the tip of the bag off, and pipe brownie batter into donut hold. 

Bake in pre-heated 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges of the brownie start to pull alway from the sides of the donut hold. 

Icing
While brownies are cooling, prepare icing. 

Melt chocolate chips in a medium saucepan over low heat being careful not to over-melt. 

Meanwhile, whip butter and icing sugar together.  Add cream, and continue whipping until fluffy.  

Once chocolate has fully melted, slowly add it to the mixture while continuing to whip.  

Once brownies are fully cooled, spread on frosting.

Using a rolling pin, crush peppermint candy canes.  Sprinkle on top of frosted brownies brownies.

Cheddar Bacon Potato Bites



This past weekend I was invited to two separate get togethers, both of which I wanted to make an appetizer for.  One friend was having a Grey Cup party in the afternoon, and another friend was having a dinner party for The Walking Dead mid-season finale in the evening.  It made sense to double up on ingredients and make an appetizer that was versatile enough to bring to both places.  I wanted something that could be made ahead, didn't require a lot of ingredients or time to put together, and of course delicious.  After some quick brainstorming, I decided to make a reconstructed baked potato of sorts... in the form of bacon wrapped fingerling potatoes.
