12 Days of Giveaways: Day 12 - Nutri Ninja Blender System with Auto IQ


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: 

The Nutri Ninja Blender System with Auto IQ
(a $249.99 value)
Overview: 
This system is everything you need in a blender.  You have your basic blender, though there really is nothing basic about it.  While most blenders have a blade on the bottom meaning you have to stop and stir every few seconds, the Ninja Blender has a unique blade like no other - it runs nearly the entire length of the inside of the blender meaning a perfect blend every time (plus you never have to stop and stir!).  This system also comes with a food processor, and a smaller blender system that is perfect for smoothies or food purees. 


Giftability: 
This is the perfect gift for the chefs in your life.  Last year I was making my annual batch of homemade Bailey's for my friends and family with my old (non-Ninja) blender.   Just as I was pouring the Jameson (Irish Whiskey) into the chamber, the entire thing broke and started leaking at the bottom.  I nearly cried, I had literally just poured an expensive bottle of alcohol all over the floor!  My husband saw how upset I was and ran to Canadian Tire - where he promptly purchased me my very first Ninja blender so I could finish making my homemade Baileys.  It was love at first sight, and I've been smitten with Ninja Blenders ever since! 

Good Luck!

Cuppow is a great grassroots company that makes mason jar adaptors that turn a glass jar into a to-go mug, a lunch kit, and so much more (the spout for a jar of Homemade Irish Cream Liqueur perhaps?).  Every year I make my friends and family my famous Homemade Bailey's.  Now, I like to include a cuppow so they have an easy to pour solution for their Christmas treat!  Cuppow also recently introduced a new product called a BNTO, which turns a wide mouth mason jar into a lunch kit!  They are great for packing items that need to be separate until serving like cereal and milk, salad and salad dressing, veggies and dip, yogurt and granola... like the Cuppow lid, their are so many options!  Visit their website to check out everything they have to offer!

This is another great gift that would be perfect for just about anybody on your list.  Anyone who is eco-minded would definitely appreciate the Cuppow's capabilities and no frills recycled packaging, in addition to the awesome novelty of actually being able to take steaming hot beverages inside of mason jars outdoors without the fear of spilling them all over yourself (I may have done that a time or two before my cuppow came along...

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! 
Good Luck!

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.
