India Tree® - Night In Baking With My Friends!

Where inappropriate jokes are shared and the calories don't matter...

When friends get together and bake, something magical happens. Smiles are had, good food is eaten, and new inside jokes and memories are created. 
It doesn't happen often enough with our busy lives, and I can't wait for this to become something we all do regularly. Alternating houses of course! (Sorry about your poor carpet and counters Loni!) 

Getting my collection of goods from India Tree® set off this budding tradition. I was so lucky to have been chosen to review some of their amazing products. I knew I wasn't going to be able to keep it to myself, so I recruited my friends. Everyone was impressed with the products, and keep coming up with more ideas of what to use them for!  

India Tree® Mulling Spices! Check them out!

Araya did an amazing job with creating bathtub paints from India Tree's Nature's Colors Decorating Set. These turned out so awesome, I created a blog just for them. If you missed it, you can check out the details here! I highly recommend these colors if you have sensitivity to artificial dyes and colors as these are made from nature. Beets, for example, are what gives the red it's beautiful color!

The Dark and Light Muscovado Sugars had me SUPER intrigued. And I'm ashamed to admit I could have taken a spoon to either of these sugars!

The India Tree® website describes the Dark Muscovado Sugar as "a fine, moist texture, a high molasses content and a strong, lingering flavor that goes well with other rich flavors such as gingerbread, coffee, chocolate cakes and fudge. Use INDIA TREE Dark Muscovado Sugar in recipes calling for dark brown sugar"
They aren't kidding when they say this sugar has a STRONG molasses flavor. It was very surprising and the quality of this sugar is apparent upon first taste. While other brown sugars are incredibly sweet, this sugar is full of FLAVOR.

The Light Muscovado Sugar is also incredibly flavorful, but not quite as strong! The website says, it "is a fine, subtle and versatile molasses sugar. With its rich aroma and delicate flavor, it is a superior substitute in any recipe calling for light brown sugar" Store bought light brown sugar has NOTHING on this sugar! SUPERIOR is quite the perfect word for this product.
