Baby, it's cold outside! During these frozen and dark days, the warmth of the kitchen beckons more strongly than ever. Here at Theo, we’ve been heeding its call and have come up with a few simple and creative ideas that we hope will bring a festive glow to your own kitchen this holiday season. With little more than a bowl full of melted chocolate, we'll show you how you can make tasty and unique chocolate-kissed treats. What's more, we've designed these gift ideas with children in mind, so the whole family can take part (and the results make excellent afternoon treats, to boot).
What better time of year to gather around your kitchen table and create edible gifts to share with your loved ones? Fire up your favorite holiday tunes and let's get dipping!
With the flavors of cherries, pistachios and chocolate, spumoni is a beloved frozen treat that sparks feelings of nostalgia in those of us who enjoyed as kids. We are of the firm belief that proper spumoni should contain bits of fruit and nuts, lest the ice cream venture into Neapolitan territory. Think of these cookies as grown-up versions of the quintessential Italian dessert just right for sharing during the holidays.
Today we're sharing a delicious recipe for pumpkin chocolate tea bread that is designed with children in mind. With a couple of mixing bowls, spoons, and measuring cups, children big and small can help assemble this tasty, festive loaf.
We love Seattle in the fall, and if we could, we would send you a basket of these chocolate chip scones. We recommend baking up a batch (or two) for yourself, your family, your colleagues, your friends. They're just the thing to carry you out into these chilly mornings—to work, to school, wherever the day may take you—with a smile.
