Mugging! from Shirley J {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.
My sister-in-laws and I have started collecting mugs together.  You know, those cute “You Are Here” mugs, found at Starbucks, and its sure been fun to pull them out almost every other night for warm treats and drinks!  There is something about cold weather that makes you want to eat nothing cooler than fresh-out-of-the-oven.  Or in this case, fresh out of the microwave.  Its true, I’m going to tell you about a most delicious treat, called Mugging!, from Shirley J, that involves mixing a few contents in a mug, microwaving for a couple minutes, and eating right out of the mug.

These are PERFECT for the holidays!  Especially in these new and darling mugs from Shirley J:

There are 8 different flavors, and we’ve been able to try five of them–all favorites.  They are really very simple to make.  Dump the contents in a mug, follow to directions to add water and usually one other ingredient, like canned pumpkin, chocolate chips, or an egg.
IMG_8896I first fell in love with the Pumpkin Spice Bread.

The finished product has a good consistency–not fluffy and airy like cheap cake, but something thicker, more like a bread pudding.  And OH how filling!  Three of us had one to ourselves on an empty stomach, and not one of us could finish.  This is not just a snack, but really a full-size dessert or meal, so you could half it or go into it solo if you’re very hungry.  You could easily split this between two people and feel like you had a full dessert or meal.  I just tried the Quiche in a Cup for breakfast, and its almost 2pm and I’m still not hungry.

These flavors are delicious!  What really makes these fun are the add-ins on the back of the packet.  There are usually three or four ideas of how to take this to the next level, like adding in particular ingredients such as tomatoes, more cheese, green peppers, or in regards to the desserts, add-ins like chocolate chips, walnuts, raisins, marshmallows, etc.  The Chocolate Brownie Cake is a real winner.

We found that with each of these packets, we had to microwave for atleast an additional 1:30 beyond what the directions said, but the possibility of this happening is indicated on the back, and we do have a very weak microwave.  Even with interrupted cooking times, everything turned out scrumptious.
 mustache
And aren’t these the most darling mugs?!  Very large and solid.  We’ll be pulling these out all winter long!
I love that the baking dish is also the serving dish–cook and eat, one mug to clean.  In all, these are just the perfect cold-weather treat!  Visit Shirley J and see what other goodies are available.
One lucky winner will receive:
1- Snowflake Mug
1- Santa Mug
3 Mugging Mix Flavors (Chocolate Brownie Cake, Pumpkin Spice Bread, and Quiche in a Cup)
A $37.90 value!

I often marvel at how the fall and winter holidays can be so centered around food!  Some might argue that the point of Halloween is to obtain candy, there is practically nothing to Thanksgiving without a huge turkey feast, and what would Christmas be with all the beautiful and delicious treats and candies!  One year, we gave all our family members a box of chocolates, and since then, I think of Christmas and fine chocolates together!  If you’re also a chocolate-lover and a Christmas fanatic, you probably already know about See’s Candies and their delicious fine chocolates.  They carry a lovely array of Christmas gifts and chocolates that are so beautiful and tasty, they’d make fantastic gifts, stocking stuffers, or just wonderful treats to enjoy while cozied up around the fireplace.

Sees-Candies

Having reviewed See’s before (see my previous review HERE), I knew what I really loved, so this time around, I went straight for a box of Holiday Fancy.  I have only raving reviews for this box.

Charlie and I were trying to get out the door for a 5th Wedding Anniversary getaway weekend, and knowing these were on the way, we were pretty bummed that they hadn’t arrived yet.  Surprise, surprise, they had JUST been dropped on our doorstep on our way to the car!  We snatched them up with glee, and spent all weekend eating these lovelies.  So. Dang. Good.

 IMG_8652This box is filled with milk, dark and white chocolates, including Cashew Brittle, Caramel, Divinity Puff and Almond Square.  Every piece was remarkable.  Honestly, after ever piece, we would moan about how good it was.  Even the cream-filled, which are usually not my favorite, were just wonderful in my book.

See this thick round one that looks like an ottoman?  Scotchmallows.  My all-time favorite See’s chocolate.

We also tried See’s Old-Fashioned Fudge Assortment!

IMG_8857This we saved for when we had company visiting.  We opened the box and passed around the fudge all night while we played Clue :).  This is perfect for holiday get-togethers.

fudgeThese fudges are packed with nuts.  Vanilla Walnut, Chocolate Walnut, and Bordeauxâ„¢ Pecan.  I’m a nut-lover, so I thought these were delicious, and boy, does this fudge last forever.  My less-of-a-nut-lover hubby still ate practically the entire chocolate bar (see above right picture) without complaint.
