Chocolate Peppermint Cookies Dipped In Homemade Ganache

Thanks to our friends at Harry & David for this Chocolate Peppermint Cookies Dipped in Homemade Ganache recipe.

Looking for a new Christmas cookie to bake this season? A delicious recipe for chocolate peppermint cookies highlights one of the top holiday flavors, made with Harry & David Peppermint Bark.

Harry and David peppermint Bark

Harry and David Peppermint Bark

We’re all for a classic gingerbread man or traditional sugar cookies, but what about peppermint? As one of the most iconic holiday flavors, this recipe deserves a spot on your holiday cookie menu.

Tempting Cookies With Homemade Ganache

What’s More Wonderful Than Homemade Ganache?

These cookies start with a chocolate cookie base reminiscent of a brownie. But, it’s not until you fold in some chopped peppermint bark that the Christmas party really starts. After a dip into chocolate ganache and a sprinkle of peppermint bark, the cookies are ready to serve. Cozy up by the fire with a mug of peppermint hot cocoa and your favorite Christmas movie for the perfect winter treat.

 

For the Cookies:

1 cup chopped Harry and David Peppermint Bark

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup cocoa powder

1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup light brown sugar

2 large eggs

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract

 

For The Ganache:

16 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped

1 cup heavy cream

Chopped peppermint bark pieces

 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line the baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl mix together flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda, then set aside.
  3. With a mixer cream butter and sugar together until smooth. Add in eggs one at a time. Next add vanilla and peppermint extract and mix until combined.
  4. Add flour mixture to butter/sugar mixture and beat until just combined. Stir in chopped peppermint bark.
  5. Scoop the dough into rounded tablespoons and place on a prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.
  6.  Bake cookies for 10 minutes and set aside on cooking rack.
  7. Make Ganache: Add the chocolate to a large bowl. Heat the cream in a small saucepan over medium heat just until it bubbles around the edges. Remove the cream from heat and pour it over the chocolate. Let the mixture stand for 30 to 45 seconds, then stir until the chocolate melts and a smooth ganache comes together, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  8. Lay out on a large sheet of parchment paper. Dip the cookies, halfway into the warm ganache. Place the dipped cookies on paper. Sprinkle with peppermint bark pieces.

Enjoy!

Pear Gin Fizz Cocktail for Holiday Sipping

December 18, 2019
Pear Gin Fizz Cocktail With floral Flavors For Christmas Parties

Pear Gin Fizz Cocktail With Floral Flavors

Thanks to our friends at Harry & David for this Pear Gin Fizz Holiday Cocktail Recipe.

Holiday entertaining can get stressful, but with this delicious cocktail recipe by Elizabeth Harris of Floating Kitchen you can start the season off just right. By infusing floral flavors like Elderflower and Rosemary as well as adding Royal Riviera Pears, this holiday drink will become a seasonal favorite.

It’s the season for sipping on fancy cocktails! This Pear Gin Fizz with Elderflower and Rosemary has a secret… it looks fancy, but this seasonal cocktail is actually incredibly easy to make. There are no crafty bartender skills required, and you won’t have to go on a chase for hard-to-source liqueurs. This cocktail makes holiday entertaining fun and low stress.

 

Pear Gin Fizz Cocktail made from sweet and succulent Southern Oregon-Grown Royal Riviera® Pears

Pear Gin Fizz Cocktail With Southern Oregon-Grown Royal Riviera® Pears

 

This cocktail recipe starts with a homemade pear-rosemary purée, made with Harry & David’s famously delicious Royal Riviera Pears. The purée will be thick on its own, but it thins and smooths out beautifully once incorporated with the other ingredients in the cocktail. The result: a beverage with lots of lively, luscious pear flavor.

The pear-rosemary purée will keep for a couple days when stored properly in your refrigerator. Plus, you should have enough to easily craft a dozen cocktails. You can make it in advance, then just shake up individual drinks once your guests arrive.

The Elderflower liqueur adds some subtle floral notes to this cocktail while adding a touch of sweetness. Depending on your taste buds, you can choose to use either club soda for a less sweet version, or tonic water for a sweeter version. Either way, this Pear Gin Fizz Cocktail will be one of your favorite holiday cocktails, Happy Sipping.

INGREDIENTS:

PEAR-ROSEMARY PURÉE

4 cups peeled and chopped Harry & David Royal Riviera Pears

3/4 cups water

2 tablespoons sugar

Juice from 2 lemons

1 sprig fresh rosemary

COCKTAILS (recipe makes 2)

3 ounces pear-rosemary purée

3 ounces gin

1.5 ounces elderflower liqueur

Ice Cubes

Tonic water or club soda

GARNISH

Sliced Harry & David Royal Riviera Pears

Fresh rosemary

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the chopped pears, water, sugar, lemon juice and rosemary. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10-12minutes. The pears should be softened.
  2. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let cool. Remove and discard the rosemary sprig. Then transfer the cooked pears and any remaining liquid in the saucepan to your blender and blend on high until smooth. Transfer the pear-rosemary purée to a clean re-sealable container and refrigerate until well chilled. The purée can be stored for 2-3 days.
  3. For the cocktails, add the pear-rosemary purée, gin and elderflower liqueur to a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously until well chilled. Then strain the liquid into two serving glasses with ice. Top with tonic water or club soda. Garnish with sliced pears and rosemary. Enjoy immediately.

Bake Me A Wish Heavenly Cakes

November 8, 2019

Hey, Can You Bake A Birthday Cake?

When the answer is no, sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands and start mixing. Our partners at Bake Me A Wish share the story of their first shipped cake (for a VIP customer) and the rest is luscious cake and frosting history:

Your Wish Is Granted

Bake Me A Wish! began in 2005 when our founder wanted to send a cake to his mother for her birthday. He had just moved to New York and was miles away from her, but he wanted to help her celebrate. Her favorite cake flavor was tiramisu, and he asked multiple bakeries in New York City if they could mail a tiramisu cake to her. Since no one was able, he decided to do it himself and Bake Me A Wish! was born.

Gourmet Pies, Brownies and Cookies

Since then, Bake Me A Wish! has delivered over one million birthday cakes nationwide! We’ve also expanded into so much more over the past 15 years with gourmet cookies, brownies, pies and gift towers. We take pride in giving you the opportunity to celebrate your loved one’s special occasion even if you’re miles away. Each gift we send includes a gift box and is carefully packaged so that edible delights look just as good as they did in the bakery. We also give you peace of mind that your special gesture will arrive on your loved one’s special day – guaranteed.

Exclusively From 1800Baskets.com

For 1800 Baskets, we created an exclusive Bake Me A Wish! Chocolate Mousse Birthday Cake as well as offering some of our finest, best-selling gifts through our valued partner.
Birthday Heaven in a box! Two rich, chocolate cake layers are filled with luscious chocolate whipped cream mousse, then covered with chocolate fudge frosting. This best-selling delight is then garnished with chocolate curls and includes a festive Happy Birthday milk chocolate plaque. Each cake is a celebration in itself!

The World’s Most Fabulous Cheesecake®

September 12, 2019
The best cheesecake in New York City

Junior’s Red Velvet Cheesecake

“The Best Cheesecake in N.Y.” – New York Magazine!

Hail a taxicab anywhere in New York City and tell the driver, “Take me to the best cheesecake in New York.” Odds are you will end up at the corner of Flatbush and DeKalb Avenues in Brooklyn, at Juniors. Founded by Harry Rosen in 1950, Junior’s landmark restaurant is known as the home of New York’s best cheesecake.

For decades, Brooklynites (and other New Yorkers) have come to eat, laugh, and kibbtiz (argue) over cheesecake. In the 1950’s, an entire generation came of age at Junior’s. Our cheesecake was as important as the Brooklyn Dodgers…the Fox Theater…Coney Island…Brighton Beach. Today loyal customers still come –from all over and all walks of life. Famous Mayors. Presidents. Hall of Fame athletes. Authors, singers, movie stars.

The secret to Junior’s moist cake is the premium ingredients

Today, you can enjoy a genuine Junior’s “World Most Fabulous Cheesecake” at any of their four landmark location restaurants or have one delivered directly to your home from 1-800Baskets.com.  And though times have changed, Junior’s cheesecake is made the same way—premium ingredients slowly blended and baked with tradition in a family-owned bakery.

In fact, it’s as true today as it was 60 years ago when we started, “You haven’t really lived until you’ve had cheesecake at Junior’s.”

Summer Symphony: Cheeseboards

July 11, 2018
the taste of Italian Gargonzola

Fresh Fruit & Cheese Gourmet Gift Box

For a sensational appetizer that appeals to guests with many different palettes, some with restricted diets consider serving a Summer Symphony of flavors and textures: Cheeseboards! Cheddar, Goat, Bleu, Feta, Parmigiano and Farmstead pair superbly with fresh fruit, jam and nuts.

Salty, Sweet, Tangy and Sour Mingle

Did you know that there are 2000 plus hard and soft cheeses in shades of white, cream and yellow? You can’t go wrong if you start with what you love. Cheddar, originating in England, is always a star. You’ll want some exotic sounding cheeses too. Hit your local farmer’s market, sample a few new cheeses and be inventive. Cheesemongers have profound love for cheese and will help you select the best!

Bold, Complex, Regional

Through a long, caring and patient process that starts with raising cows and goats, cheesemongers craft elaborate cheeses. The result is more a work of art than a savory snack! Go for it and try an intriguing French cheese like Normandy Camembert, a Spanish cheese with smokiness like Idiazabel (Northern Spain) or a Sonoma California  Bellwether Farms® Carmody Cheese. Elevate the taste of cheese by adding jams, chocolate and surprises like lemon curd.

Create a colorful cheeseboard with fresh or dried fruit. Present the summer symphony cheeseboards on marble slates that will keep the cheese slightly cool to room temperature. Accessorize the boards with a few quality cheese knives. Style the cheese in bite size squares, pie slices and uneven cubes. Serve crackers alongside in rustic baskets. Trending now: Straight lines of fruit, cheese and nuts on rectangular plates.

Prepare a sweet, hearty or Italian cheeseboard for summer entertaining. What’s your favorite?

The Sweet Goat

Creamy Goat Cheese, Fresh Apricots, Fresh Ripe Peaches, Brie Creamy Cheese Spread Cream Cheese Topped with Lemon Curd, Charcuterie, Italian Dry Salame Whole Almonds, Small Jar Of Cherry Jam, Small Jar Of Honey, Partners Olive Oil & Sea Salt Crackers

Hearty English Cheddar

Cheddar, Stilton, Bleu Cheese, Bing Cherries, Walnuts, Fig Jam, Milk or Dark Chocolate, Chocolate Pralines, Raisin Crispettes

Mama Mia Mozzarella

Water Buffalo Mozzarella, Wide Beefsteak Tomatoes, Fresh Basil, Olive Oil, Crusty French Baguette

A Pretty Box, A Rustic Basket & Cheeseboards

What could be more perfect for summer entertaining than a pretty display of gourmet cheese and fruit? Our Fresh Fruit & Cheese Gourmet Gift Box is reminiscent of the Gorgonzola cheeses of Italy! Vintage Gourmet Fruit & Cheese Gift Basket features delicious ripe fruit ready for guests, Sierra Nevada® Jack Cheese and a tempting chocolate pairing.
