This past Easter we were delighted to have a business associate join us for the holiday. She needed to meet with us and the only time schedules coordinated was over Easter weekend. We wanted her to feel welcome and included in our celebration, so asked what she typically served for Easter dessert? Since she is currently living in Fiji and had recently relocated from Australia, but originally hails from the UK, we had no idea what to expect and were admittedly a little nervous. Something with pineapples, or coconut? A dessert you can quickly fashion on the bar-by? Or some bland (no offense England…) minced meat pie thing?
If you ever need to whip up something delicious in a jiff – this is for you. Yesterday I got a call from a friend I haven’t seen for months. She was in the area and was going to drop in for a quick cup of coffee. Well, you know how it is….you don’t want to just pour a naked cup a coffee, so not having any fabuous French pastries on hand (joke…) I wondered what to serve. I really needed something quick and tasty to go with my notoriously bad coffee. Yes, I make weak coffee and everybody complains. Knowing my coffee needed a companion, I rummaged through the pantry and found a box of lemon cake mix. I didn’t really have time to make a full blown cake with frosting, as she said she’d be here shortly but I remembered a quick cookie recipe I had heard of using cake mix and Sephra chocolate chips. Yep, it pays to have those on hand at all times. A staple in my house. You can NEVER go wrong adding Sephra chocolate.
This recipe is totally amazing. It needs a post of its own. We may need to create the category “Bacon” which is really not our genre, but this is awesome stuff. This recipe is not difficult, but does take a little attention. You need to be available to slather on more maple syrup and pepper from time to time. Trust me. Totally worth it.
Throwing an Event? Make it Fabulous! Whether you’re looking to throw an amazing baby shower, wedding shower, or celebrate Mother’s Day in color, here’s a few fast easy tips to coloring your chocolate fountain to match! Nothing completes an event more perfectly than a chocolate fondue fountain with dyed to match chocolate flowing over the tiers. Trust me. You will get more ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ throwing a baby shower for the soon-to-be mother of a little girl a with a soft pink chocolate fountain. Or equally as adorable is a baby blue fountain for a boy. Too stinkin’ cute. Am I right? I know I am. Not to mention the delicious fruit and treats dipped into the fountain will be the highlight of the menu, as well.

One day each year we take time out to honor our Mothers. It’s Mother’s Day – this year on Sunday, May 8, 2016. A day when we do special things for a special lady. Now this should probably happen more than once a year, but as a mother myself, I’m going to take what I can get! Did you know scientific research proves that 14 out of 10 Moms LOVE CHOCOLATE! Folks here at Sephra can totally relate to moms!
These delicious crepes are perfect for a Cinco de Mayo dessert or a Mother’s Day brunch! Our tasty Sephra Crepe Mix makes these an even easier dessert – just add water for perfect crepes every time! The filling is a decadent combination of cream and Sephra White Chocolate Chips (Don’t skimp and buy white chocolate coating at the craft store. The amazing quality of the Sephra Chocolate is what makes these divine)
Asking yourself “What is Schaum Torte?” Well, my Aunt Vi, who was the best cook in our family, called it Schaum Torte. You may know it as “Pavlova” or simply “meringue shells”. At any rate, whatever you call it, it became a family tradition to serve Schaum Torte on Easter and Mother’s Day. For years I’ve tried to make Vi’s recipe with little success. Then I discovered the key. Patience!!!
With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner, I decided it was time to take our Sephra Select Fondue Fountain for a little cheese fondue test run. People have been using cheese fondue in our fountains for years, but, I personally, had never had the opportunity to try it. I checked out #cheesefondue on Instagram. There were thousands of results, but not much with a cheese fondue fountain. Pinterest has quite a few nice photos – happy to say most of the good ones are with Sephra fountains.
