It's back! Our annual 12 days of recipes featuring our favourite gift ideas and local producers to help you check off everyone on your list. This year, we're adding a contest to our series where you can win one of the feature products by responding to a question and sharing the contest with your friends and family on social media!
This series pairs a gift idea with a great recipe that you could write in a card to inspire your gift recipient or for you to try out for your own table this season!
On the third day of recipes, we suggest you try making our Chocolate Almond Toffee (see recipe here). Dutch process chocolate or Dutched chocolate is chocolate that has been treated with an alkalizing agent to modify its colour and give it a milder taste compared to "natural cocoa". It is used in everything from ice cream, to hot cocoa. It's a must have for the serious baker!
Today's recipe also calls for some Marcona Almonds. Simply write today's recipe in a card and pick up a package of Marcona Almonds (what we call "the queen of Almonds") for a lovely gift to the baker or nut fanatic in your life!
We're giving away a free tin of Dutched cocoa and a package of Marcona Almonds for in-store pick-up to one special customer who fills out today's sweepstakes form and answers the question:
Marcona almonds are really special and make a BIG flavour difference in this recipe - have you ever cooked or baked with them before?
We will be drawing our winner* at 6PM on December 6th and will announce it on Facebook! You can get extra entries into the contest by referring your friends to our daily recipe and product feature on social media and by email. Good luck!

I have never used these almonds however I love roasting almonds in the oven, I would love to see the difference with Marcona almonds compared to other almonds.
I live in Kamloops BC and have tried on several occasions to get into your store to see what all you carry. I just love kitchen stores and especially ones that also carry foods of different types. Will keep trying to get in one of these days. We are coming to the coast for Xmas on Dec 22 this year and I am hoping we will get down there early enough that we can come for a visit. Thank you for the great emails I received from you.
Visited your shop for the first time today, awesome. Will beg back, would love to try one of your classes.
