Malt Shop Cookies

Do you have those folks on your Holiday list that you just don't know what to give them? I know I do and it is usually my older family members, the family we don't see often and the kids teachers. Shopping can be so stressful if you don't know what to get them and when I find something I love I want to share it with you guys.

Malt Shop Cookies is the perfect gift for those hard to shop for folks on your list.

I think what I love most about them is that I grew up loving Malted Milk everything. It is something that I definitely tie to my youth and get happy just seeing the word Malted. My grandmother always had malted mix and it was a definite favorite. My dad always bought that half gallon milk container full of Whoppers Malted Milk Balls. Who didn't love those chocolate covered yum yums?

The Malt Shop Cookies takes that nostalgic name and flavor and made cookies using malted milk.

What's great about using Malted Milk in your cookies? Well, malted milk keeps your favorite cookies softer longer.  Maybe it has something to do with the malted barley or the wheat or maybe it is the whole milk. Whatever it is, it works and the cookies are amazing.


 The guys who created this wonderful combination are named John and Ed and they have created 3 flavors of cookies that you can purchased separately in packs of 12, 18 or 36 cookies or in a combo tin of 18 or 36.

The flavors are:
Chocolate Chip

Double Chocolate 

Mocha Chocolate

Head over to Malt Shop Cookies and shop for yourself or for loved ones. You can even add a personalized message to the tin including a photo.

SO....if  you are looking for a yummy gift for someone on your list that they cannot get in stores, give Malt Shop Cookies a try.

Mini Blender for Make And Go Shakes, Smoothies and More

This Blender is perfect. It is a Stainless Mixer that comes with (2) 20 oz travel, sport bottles.  You simply put everything in the mixer, twist, change the top out and go! No more dirting up a blender and a cup! Just mix and go!!!

The bottles are dishwasher safe and get covered with an easy to use top so you can drink on the go.

With 4 Stainless Steel blades, you can guarantee the perfect mixing at a 300W power. This is a powerful baby that takes up very little space. 

This was so easy to use that you could do it with a baby in your arms. Fill with your favorite whatever. We did spinach, mango, carrot, apple, yogurt and water. You place the cup in the blender upside down which is where the blender blade is and twist. Watch it blend until it is the consistency you like. We like ours pretty juiced when using veggies.

 It doesn't have to be juice in there. You could use it for anything you would put in your blender and this is the perfect size for making marinade or salad dressing. No need to take out a big blender.

The 411:

We received a Tekno Newborn in September and love. The kitty walks (very slowly) and sings to you when you clap. There are two buttons on it's head and we had a problem with the ear falling off but for my daughter who doesn't have a live cat or dog she loves any robotic pet that sort of acts like a pet.

She loves how it flips into their air so she can catch it. Basically you push the baby's feet forward and press the button on top of his head. You will hear it with a little beep so you know it has happened. Once it does that they kitten or puppy will make a sounds a bark or in our case a Meow and will jump into your hand.

The kitty's come in pink and teal and are so cute and fun with lights, sounds and movement.

Tekno Pets interact with other Tekno Pets which is fun.

Kitty is cute
Kitty can do a few different things (jump, walk, beg and sing)

    Ever Wanted To See Your Name In Lights? See If You've Got the Chops With Be A Broadway Star

    Be A Broadway Star - the brand new board game that puts YOU in the spotlight!
    This isn't your typical board game.  This is a Broadway board game!  And that means you'll have lots of chances to show off your stuff along the way, with interactive "make or break" cards that just might have you singing and dancing on your turn!

    Just remember, at the end of the game, whoever has the most fans wins!
    Can you make it all the way to the Broadway Hall of Fame?
    Find out today when you play Be A Broadway Star, the brand new board game for Broadway theater lovers of all ages.

    The 411:

    If you are a lover of musicals, Broadway or just like to perform, you will love this game. Life and Monopoly you simply roll the dice, follow the board, draw cards, make and pay money, until the end where you are crowned the Big Kahuna or in this case make it all the way to the Broadway Hall of Fame.

    Created by Tony Award Winner, Producer and Writer Ken Davenport Be A Broadway Star is fun. Not only is it a board game but you get to perform with Make or Break Cards like:

    Reciting a line with a Russian accent
    Perform three mime moves
    Perform two Bob Fosse dance moves
    Sing in the highest note you can reach
    Impersonate the star of a current Broadway show
    Make a hero's entrance including the line "Here I come to save the day and so many more. BTW..these cards get you 4 addition fan cards. 

    Playing with the kids was hard because there were things they just didn't know but we changed it up to make it work for them like name three songs from Annie, sing a song from The Lion King, dance like no one is watching, etc.

     We had a great time playing and I know a lot of friends who would absolutely love this game.

     Oh and another thing; anyone named Tony is at an advantage because they will always get to go first.

    AND..lastly, every year the game makers will be coming out with an expansion pack that includes things like

    Songs from Matilda
    Rock out to air guitar
    Idina Menzel beats you for a Tony tell her how you really feel.

    This is so much fun that I am adding it to my Holiday Gift Guide
