Decadent Twist on the Classic "Box of Chocolates"

A Decadent Twist on the Classic

“Box of Chocolates!”

Decadent Twist on the Classic "Box of Chocolates"

Give a Decadent Twist on the Classic

“Box of Chocolates”

This year, give her a gift she will love. Most men just stop by the local store and grab a classic box of chocolates, filled with flavors that are hard to identify, a card, and maybe some roses too. It’s pretty much the standard gift from husbands and boyfriends everywhere. It is time to do something different, give her a decadent twist on the classic box of chocolates with flavors she knows and loves.

This is brought to you in partnership with Walkers Shortbread, as a member of the Walkers Shortbread Society. All opinions expressed are completely my own.

Instead of giving her the same old boring “box of chocolates,” give her a decadent twist on the classic “box of chocolates” with Walkers Shortbread Chocolate cookie varieties. Snacking on Walkers Shortbread brings a certain self-indulgence in a real luxurious treat.

Walkers Shortbread Chocolate Cookies featured in the “box of chocolates” include:

  • Chocolate and Raspberry Shortbread,  A new combination of scrumptious raspberry shortbread, half coated with rich dark chocolate.
  • Chocolate and Toffee Shortbread The perfect blend of Walkers Shortbread and delicious chunks of toffee half coated in smooth milk chocolate.
  • Orange Royals Crisp pure butter shortbread baked with Mediterranean oranges and smothered in rich, smooth milk chocolate.
  • Ginger Royals A unique shortbread, combining the moistness of real stem ginger with the crisp Walkers traditional butter shortbread, covered in irresistible dark chocolate.
  • Walkers Chocolate Chip Shortbread Walkers traditional Scottish shortbread with luscious chunks of dark chocolate

Other Walkers Shortbread Chocolate Varieties include:

Create the “Box of Chocolates”

If you would like to create a twist on the classic box of chocolates for your loved ones you will need the following items:

  • A Decorative Pastry Box (Valentine designed or a regular one, and you create your own designs)
  • Walkers Shortbread Chocolate Cookie varieties
  • Red Tissue Paper (optional)
  • Red Ribbon and Bow
  • Scissors

Twist on the classic box of chocolates

Instructions:

  1. Take your pastry box and line it with the tissue paper.
  2. Place your Walkers Shortbread Chocolate Cookies inside the box stacking in a variety of patterns. Repeat until filled.
  3. Place lid on the “box of chocolates.” Wrap the ribbon around the box and cut it to the proper length needed to tie the ribbon around the box and attach the bow.

Make sure you put a decadent twist on the classic “box of chocolates,” with her favorite Walkers Shortbread chocolate cookies. Believe me, she will appreciate you going the extra mile and the thoughtfulness you put into her gift, over the store-bought classic “box of chocolates.”

Celebrate National Shortbread Day

with Walkers Shortbread

Did you know that National Shortbread Day is on January 6th? Celebrate National Shortbread Day with Walkers Shortbread. How will you celebrate? Will you indulge in a few fingers, rounds, or petticoat tails?

This is created in partnership with Walkers Shortbread. All opinions expressed are completely my own.

Walkers Shortbread

A Girl Rocks Life is pleased to announce we are a member of The Walkers Shortbread Society. Are you wondering what the Walkers Shortbread Society is? The Shortbread Society is an exclusive group of bloggers with a common delicious interest: Walkers Shortbread. As a member of the Shortbread Society, we will learn more about Walkers, their new products and share our feedback with YOU and with Walkers. Expect to see more post’s featuring Walkers Shortbread.

Walkers Shortbread

Walkers Shortbread is a family owned company that started in 1898, in the village of Aberlour, Speyside, in the heart of the Scottish Highlands and remains there to this day. By baking in small batches, using the same simple recipe that founder Joseph Walker created, ensures that classic taste for which Walkers are famed. Made with only four ingredients: flour, pure creamery butter, sugar, and salt. Walkers products contain absolutely NO Artificial flavorings, colors, or preservatives. Which, as a consumer, I appreciate.

I love shortbread cookies. It’s something about the simplicity of the ingredients that create a uniquely sweet flavor. Every bite of a Walkers Shortbread cookie creates a moment of indulging in a scrumptious treat.

Walkers bakes an extensive selection of pure butter shortbread in a variety of flavors and sizes. My personal favorites are the Shortbread Fingers, Shortbread Rounds, Chocolate Chip Shortbread and a few others. Every pure butter shortbread of Walkers has a perfect, crumbly texture, that melts-in-your-mouth.

  • The Shortbread Fingers are baked in a square and cut into “fingers”.
  • The Shortbread Rounds are traditional shortbread adorned with the Scottish thistle.
  • The Chocolate Chip Shortbread is a timeless delight. Traditional shortbread and luscious chunks of dark chocolate create a certain indulgence in a real treat.

Discover A New Holiday Tradition At Frisch’s

Discover a New Holiday Tradition at Frisch’s Big Boy this year. Recently, I was invited to dinner at Frisch’s and to a performance of the Nutcracker, presented by the Cincinnati Ballet, at the Aronoff Center. Little did I know at the time, that I will discover a new holiday tradition for my family and friends to enjoy.

At Frisch’s we ate a sampling of their holiday dinner menu items; Carved Turkey, Country Fried Chicken, Roast Beef, Country Fried Steak, and Meatloaf. Served with Creamy Mashed Potatoes, Rich Gravy, and Farm Fresh Green Beans. Served up family style, since we had a bunch of my blogger friends from the area attending as well. It’s hard to choose a favorite since I liked them all. All dinners are available for $7.99.

Check out how delicious these dinners look in the picture below.

A New Holiday Tradition

For dessert, we were introduced to the new Peppermint Hot Fudge Cake. Frisch’s classic dessert, the Hot Fudge Cake, has received a holiday twist. If you love the original hot fudge cake, then you will definitely be in love with the peppermint hot fudge cake. Put it this way; I am not a fan of peppermint and I loved the Peppermint Hot Fudge Cake. The ice cream is the perfect sweetness. The peppermint chips sprinkled atop the whipped cream with cherry, is not overpowering as some peppermints can be. It is the perfect combination of ice cream layered between warm chocolate cake, hot fudge, whipped cream and a cherry sprinkled with candy cane bits, for the just a hint of peppermint crunch in every bite. Chef Greg did a great job putting a holiday twist on the classic hot fudge cake.

Discover a New Holiday Tradition

The Peppermint Hot Fudge Cake is available for a limited time (until Feb. 7). This is the first time since the original dessert debuted in 1970, that it has been offered in another flavor. Don’t worry all you original Hot Fudge Cake fans out there, it’s still available in restaurants. Both the original and the limited edition peppermint hot fudge cake are $3.29.

The Nutcracker

When dinner was over, we were off to see a performance of The Nutcracker, performed by the Cincinnati Ballet, at the Aronoff Center. From the very first performance of The Nutcracker in 1974, Frisch’s has been proud to be the Ballet’s primary sponsor. Wow! That is a long time for a corporation to sponsor an event. In fact, it is one of the longest-lasting examples of corporate sponsorship in American Arts history. Frisch’s Big Boy presents The Nutcracker runs Dec. 9-18, at the Aronoff Center.

Before the show, we were able to meet with some of the ballerinas and the Nutcracker. At showtime, I quickly found my seat and settled in to watch the performance. We were surprised at the end of the show with autographs from the dancers. I really enjoyed the performance and had a wonderful evening out on the town courtesy of Frisch’s Big Boy. Another bonus of the evening, when we were leaving the ushers gave us a coupon for a free peppermint hot fudge cake at Frisch’s. Woo Hoo!! More Peppermint Hot Fudge Cake, YUMM!

Hurry!! Get to Frisch’s before Feb. 7, to try the new peppermint hot fudge cake before it is gone for good.
