THE BLONDE BOMBSHELL
I’d have to say that our team at Dolled Up Desserts is very competitive. We know we do something special with our treats, and like to share that with the world whenever we can…. Especially if we can win awards for it.
The Toronto Vegan Bake off is in its 10th year- 10 YEARS! It is run each year by the volunteers at the Toronto Vegetarian Association (who we love so dearly) as a fun way for amateur and pro bakers to share delicious and innovative vegan treats with the community, as well as encourage friendly competition. We were lucky enough to enter in 2017 and WIN for our Lavender Lemon Short Bread Cookies. We decided to up our game and try again this year to wow the crowd with some more fantastic inclusive dessert. And boy, did we deliver.
Presenting this years Vegan Bake Off best Professionally Crafted Gluten free and Vegan Goody- the Blonde Bombshell.
The Blonde Bombshell, fittingly named after the pin up queen Marilyn Monroe, is our signature Monroe Blondie Premium Baking Mix spiced with cinnamon into a snickerdoodle base. Then the fudgy blondie is topped with marshmallows, popcorn, coconut caramel candy and flaked sea salt.
The taste and texture juxtaposition of this treat is mind blowing, like a bomb in your mouth (hah hah).
The unique learning piece of this recipe is the coconut caramel candy. Soft caramels are typically made with cream and butter. An identical version of soft caramels can be achieved quickly and easily using coconut condensed milk. So long as you are stirring occasionally and keeping an eye on this, you will end up with perfect soft caramel each time. This can be used on top of ice cream, cakes, in cookies, and more.
Although slightly harder to track down, ask around at your local health food or bulk stores for coconut condensed milk. To make your own coconut condensed milk (not even the caramel), it takes epic amounts of sugar and hours of boiling time. Save yourself the hassle and find the condensed stuff. If you are having trouble finding it, message us or comment below and hopefully we can help you find it.
Anyways without further ado, here’s our award winning baking mix recipe. We hope you enjoy baking it!
