If you ever wanted a good cheesecake or sweet pie, it must have bothered you not to find those pre-made pie crusts in the store. At least you can now make them easily with these graham cracker crumbs and some melted butter.
In all honesty, I used to by their animal cookies graham cracker and grind them up myself. I guess they became smarter and started selling them already crumbled for me.
Kinnikinnick definitely has some great gluten free products on the market. Say for example the k-toos cookies, pizza crusts and more.
I happened upon this delicacy while shopping at HomeGoods one day.
Very hard to find but most definitely worth the search. I’ve only found it once more since then.
It’s a crispy rice wafer / cigar roll filled with a yummy chocolate gooey center.

6 1/2 Ounces Heavy Whipping Cream

set aside to cool slightly
Begin boiling the sugar with just a bit of water and use a thermometer to monitor the temperature
In a mixing bowl or stand mixer whip the egg and yolks until ribbon stage -
this is when the eggs are thick enough that you can run a “ribbon” of eggs over the top and it will stay.

slowly add it to the whipped eggs while mixer is on highest setting
After the sugar is mixed in, add the chocolate in increments of thirds until fully combined – on medium speed
