DISCOVERING BAYS ENGLISH MUFFINS

We love English muffins but had no idea that we could get them so incredibly fresh, until we discovered Bays English Muffins. You won’t find them with the bread, instead they’re kept in the refrigerated section of the grocery store, usually by the eggs.

Whether you like your English muffins ever so lightly toasted (like we do), or toasted to golden brown and crunchy, they will end up tasting like they were just freshly baked.

I got inspired by Bays’ chocolate chunk cheesecake spread, and swapped out a few ingredients to make this decadent, whole ingredient, chocolate raspberry cheesecake spread.

Although Washington gets quite cold in the winter, we live in the valley and don’t get a lot of snow. But every once in a while, we get a doozy of a snow day, and it’s pretty much our favorite day of the year!

The memories of the day come in two parts. First is the excitement and fun of playing in the snow together. The second part is warming up inside with hot cocoa and sweet treat.

This chocolate raspberry cheesecake spread is made from goat cheese creamed together with maple syrup and vanilla extract. Then chunks of rich dark chocolate, chopped walnuts, and freeze dried raspberries are gently folded in for a creamy spread that’s simply irresistible.

While we like our chocolate raspberry cheesecake spread for an afternoon snack, it also makes a GREAT holiday party dessert. Just whip up a batch in minutes, and serve alongside a basket full of toasted Bays English Muffin halves.
