Cheesecake with TreFoil shortbreak GSC as the crust.
I made apples covered with melted marshmallow, fudge, caramel (I made the fudge and caramel!!) and sprinkled with broken Samoa GSC. The apples won the best overall treat! Not only did I win - I won the best overall! Yes - winning a baking contest, I think I have made it in life. I named it the "Wellness program approves way to eat GSC" (we have a wellness program at work...if you didn't gather that). I didn't want the apples to brown so I put it all together at the office. Everything exploded in the microwave as I reheated it - EVERYTHING! There were three microwaves and three things I needed to heat up - basically I was multitasking too much! I had an entire mason pint jar full of fudge and ended up with a molten lake in the microwave and bearly had enough to put on my creation. As I was cleaning it the caramel spilled over...and so it continued. Upside: all the microwaves in the break room are very clean.
I was totally surprised! I was crouched taking pictures (I'm the official marketing photographer...it'd be great if I didn't suck!) and I just sat there as it sunk in that it was me! Husband told me when I married him that Wright's never win anything - proved him wrong! And,yes, we're watching round 64 of March Madness. My bracket is currently surviving nicely.
Trying to figure out which item of mine won...waiting with baited breath!
I won an ice cream maker. I have one. But this one runs on batteries, way cool if your camping. Potentially way cool. Where am I looking?
