Pomegranate Popcorn Balls

Trick or treat!  Halloween is right around the corner, and while there are plenty of gory and ghoulish recipes out there for all your festive needs; I’m going the subtle route and tricking taste buds with these inconspicuous looking popcorn balls.  You’d never guess from looking at them, but the marshmallow is made with pomegranate molasses, and offers just as much tartness as it does sweetness.  Add to that some salted sunflower seeds and popcorn, and you have all the elements of the perfect treat: sweet, salty, tangy, chewy and crunchy.

S’mores Chocolate Cookies from Manuela Kjeilen

 

*This recipe can be found in the cookbook, “Love, Manuela” by Manuela Kjeilen

This month I am so excited to introduce you to my sweet friend Manuela Kjeilen from Norway.  In 2010, she started her blog Passion For Baking and within a year she was known as Norway’s “Most Beloved Blogger”.

I was first introduced to Manuela almost two years ago when she was visiting the US, shooting images for her first baking magazine.  She had previously featured the Ankarsrum Assistant on her blog in Norway and while here, requested to use the mixer in preparing all of her delicious foods for her photo shoot.  As it turned out, her photo shoot was only about 15 minutes from my home.  My children got to meet her and instantly fell in love with her!  She ended up using my middle son JJ in her magazine and cookbook.

This month we are excited to partner with Manuela by featuring recipes from her cookbook.  Our May promotion includes a FREE copy of her cookbook with the purchase of the Pearl Pink Ankarsrum Assistant Mixer.  You are also able to purchase your own copy of her cookbook from her beautiful website: www.passionforbaking.com
