#Torani Recipes: Salted Caramel Frosting and Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookies


#Torani Recipes and Review

A couple of weeks ago I received two bottles of Torani Syrup to review and experiment with in my holiday recipes. I couldn’t have picked two better flavors, Salted Caramel and Peppermint! I completely admit that this was the first time I’d ever used Torani in my home. I had no idea I could find them in Wal-Mart, Walgreens, etc. When I initially added the Salted Caramel to my coffee I went a little overboard and had to dump it.  Since then I’ve perfected my morning cup (2 Tbsp syrup, splash of half&half, coffee) and I’ve created these two recipes.

@Torani @mvemother Salted Caramel Frosting

Salted Caramel Frosting

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter flavored shortening
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup Torani Salted Caramel Syrup
  • Milk as needed to reach desired consistency

Mix shortening with half of the powdered sugar until combined. Add syrup and rest of powdered sugar and beat until smooth.  Add milk if necessary to reach your desired consistency. Spread onto cake ( I used spice cake) and enjoy!

@Torani @mvemother Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookies with Cake Mix

Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients

  • White Cake Mix
  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup of Torani Peppermint Syrup
  • 4 Peppermint canes crushed
  • 1 cup of white chocolate chips (optional – these cookies are pretty sweet you might want to omit these)

Preheat over to 350 degrees. Blend together first four ingredients. Fold in the chocolate chips and half the crushed peppermint canes. Drop by the spoonful onto a greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with remaining crushed candy canes. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet promptly to avoid the crushed candies from sticking to your pan. Cool on rack before serving.

*Note: Personally I hate having sticky crushed peppermint candies on the tops of the cookies, if you feel the same way, you can always mix all of it into the batter.

If you like these recipes, take a moment and visit the Torani site for other recipe ideas and heck, just to peruse the many flavors they offer, you might be surprised at just how many and how off the wall some of them are! ( Bacon flavored syrup?)

This was a sponsored post. I was provided with two free bottles of Torani syrup for review through the SheSpeaks review program. That said, the opinions expressed are my own and I was not compensated in any other way.
