So extremely excited to announce, Country Heart Blends will now be available in Volant Mills.    Volant Mills is a unique country mercantile shop featuring Amish made furniture, quilted wall hangings and many other locally made Amish goods.  Be sure to check out the Pantry section to not only purchase all your favorite Country Heart Blends products but try some of the great jams, jellies, and pickles they have on hand.  I know I can't wait to try the Peach Amarertto Honey Butter, can't wait to go back next week and spend a few minutes shopping after I stock up all the delicious chocolates!  So grateful for this new and exciting venture!

So I went to Volant yesterday and was thrilled to see an empty counter!!! Thanks Volant customers you're the greatest! Have no fear though the counter got filled with lots of "Sweet Treats".

This week we created a special brownie just for that peanutbutter lover. A chocolate brownie topped with peanuts and popcorn tossed in melted marshmallows. This week a "peanutbutter lover's brownie" A peanutbutter chunk brownie with peanutbutter buttercream icing sprinkled with crushed peanuts. We also made some cakes that will be perfect for Dad a coconut cake, cherry chocolate cake, and apple pie cake. There are lots of fresh cookies and whoopie pies as well as monkey bread.  Head over to Miss Scarlett's in Volant to get Dad his favorite Country Heart Blend Sweet Treat for Father's Day.

Next Saturday, June 25th is Volant's Independence Festival from 10:00 - 7:00p.m. We will have red,white, and blue star cookies, more unique brownie recipes, whoopie pies, monkey bread, and many more "Sweet Treats" to celebrate. Miss Scarlett's Gift Parlor (in addition to our yummy treats)will have face painting. There will be music in town, hulahoop and limbo contest, apple pie contest, colonial demonstrations, and much more. Sounds like a day of fun.

Catch Up With Country Heart Blends

It has been awhile since I've written in our weekly blog, guess it isn't really hasn't been a weekly blog. I promise to start doing better, especially with craft show season almost upon us.

So this week was a crazy baking week as we also were starting to but the walk way and deck onto the building so our gift shop can open soon. We started the building project on Wednesday and hope to finish it in the next few weeks.

I've had some time to be creative with my baking. It has been fun to experiment/create some new recipes. Last week we created a special "stadium brownie". A chocolate brownie topped with peanuts and popcorn tossed in melted marshmallows. This week a "peanutbutter lover's brownie" A peanutbutter chunk brownie with peanutbutter buttercream icing sprinkled with crushed peanuts.

We've also started gearing up for craft show season. The truck delivered many, many, many containers of different spices so I can start making dips. We were extremely low on spices so was very happy to receive my order this week. Never thought I would be happy to see chili powder, parsley, chives, and cilantro among other things to arrive at my door.

Personalize Birthday Treats & Favors

Just finished a cookie order for a customer for her daughter  to take to school as her birthday treat tomorrow.  We individually packaged chocolate chip cookies and created a personalized birthday tag for each one.  They turned out really cute, hope she likes them.  Remember when you want a homemade "Sweet Treat"  for that special birthday celebration let Country Heart Blends help with homemade cookies or cupcakes.   We can personalize tags on many products including chocolate covered oreos, pretzels, marshmallows, and cookies.  We can also create the personalization to reflect a shower, wedding, birthday, or any party theme.
