DaVinci Gourmet

I received in the mail as part of a product review DaVinci Gourmet syrups. The flavors I got were Sugar Free Raspberry, Classic Hazelnut, Classic Vanilla. Zero Calorie White Chocolate and Zero Calorie Caramel Syrup. These can be used in coffees, Lattes and Italian Sodas. I was excited when I got these and could not wait to try them as it is starting to become cooler and will be perfect for my lattes I like to drink in the fall and winter months. I tried the Hazelnut and it gave me drink a nutty flavor. I went to their website and checked out all their syrups as the offer a wide variety and the prices are reasonable. They also have a recipe section were you can try different things with the syrups besides drinks they have desserts and entrees, what a great idea! Try them today and see which your favorite flavor is. I really enjoyed the flavors in my drink and can’t wait to have friends over to try them out and find out their opinion. I have to share this recipe from their website it is:
Blackberry Blondies with Caramel Icing
1 tablespoon DaVinci Gourmet Caramel Classic Syrup
1/4 cup DaVinci Gourmet Blackberry Classic Syrup
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup blackberry jam
2 tablespoons grated lemon rind
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons butter
1 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar, sifted
2 tablespoons cream
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 pound (1 stick) butter, softened
1 large egg
1/2 cup granulated sugar
Caramel Icing
Heat butter in saucepan until it is a light brown color. Remove from heat. Add syrup, cream and sugar to the saucepan. Mix and frost blondies.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl combine butter, egg, and sugar until well blended. Stir in syrup and flour mixture. Add nuts and spread 1/2 dough into 9 inch square pan. Mix blackberry jam with lemon rind and lemon juice. Drop jam mixture in six places over the dough. Carefully spread the remaining dough on top. With a knife, swirl through the dough in two directions, making a ribbon design. Bake for 30 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Frost with caramel icing after cooling.
Yield 2 dozen bar cookies
Doesn’t’t this sound yummy! You may even have to experiment on your own and post it online.
