For this week’s Tasty Thursdays review, I had the delectable opportunity to try our new treat, the Chocolate Hazelnut Square. Upon first bite, I was surprised at the crisp outer layer, yet creamy and gooey filling. The filling is a hazelnut cream (made with nutella, yes NUTELLA!) sandwiched between two shortbread-like chocolate cookies studded with toasted hazelnuts. This treasure is loaded with tons of textures and flavors that will blow your mind! So what are you waiting for? Join me in enjoying this sophisticated treat! Cheers!

Tasty Thursdays: Maple Cream Sandwiches
By: Jay Carlon
It’s officially October and I’m officially obsessed with all our Fall treats. For this Tasty Thursday, I present to you our scrumptious Maple Cream Sandwiches. Packed with flavor, this bite-sized sandwich cookie will make your day! It’s pretty simple: two soft and delicate maple cookies are sandwiched together with fluffy maple cream—tastes like a pancake!

Tell us a little about yourself
I am native to the beautiful Central Coast of California, and I’ve lived my whole life up and down the Southern California coast. I love dance, art, and New York City. I attended UC Irvine for my BFA in dance and CSU Long Beach for my MFA in Dance. I’m a big contemporary art nerd and fanatic!
What about Baking for Good interests you to join our team?
What is there not to love about Baking for Good? Quality handmade ingredients and proceeds go to a cause! It’s like a match made in heaven. But what really makes me excited is that all the people on the Baking for Good team are extremely amazing and talented, not to mention very kind and selfless (a perfect reflection of the BFG mission).
What would be your dream job?
I think I’m living my dream job already. Aside from my awesome job here, I perform with an international touring aerial spectacle company called Australia’s Strange Fruit (hence my picture!). The company provides free public, accessible art all over the world for people of all ages, social classes, and backgrounds.
What’s your favorite BFG treat so far or can’t wait to try
My favorite treat, at least so far, is the Pumpkin Whoopie Pie! In fact, I just wrote a short story on it in our blog! You could find it here: http://bkfr.gd/159hSJ7
Anything else you’d like to share?
My favorite color is mustard and I miss my dog back in CA. His name is Kristofer Brown.
