Amy's Ice Creams

Christmas is almost here...are you done with your shopping yet?  I can't believe how many people I am seeing leaving comments online that they haven't even started shopping yet.  What are you waiting for?  I had to run to the store the other day and couldn't believe how picked over the shelves were.  There were tons of boxes that hadn't been unpacked, and so many people racing around with their carts trying to find the perfect gift for each person on their shopping.  My husband used to leave his holiday shopping to the last night and loved it. He said he loved the rush of last minute shopping and seeing everyone else shopping last minute like him.

Well, if you are like my husband and the others I am seeing online who haven't started or only just began their holiday shopping, I wanted to share a couple great last minute gift ideas that could take care of everyone on your shopping list, so that you don't have to stress and run around like crazy last minute only to be disappointed that you can't find what you were looking for.

Have you heard of Amy's Ice Creams?  Don't worry if you haven't, as I wasn't aware of the either until last week when I stumbled upon their website looking for a S'mores Kit to gift a good friend of mine.  I fell in love with the Big Kid S'mores Kit from Amy's Ice Creams as soon as I saw it, and then was over the moon excited when I saw they also offered a combo gift set that includes a box of Mexican Vanilla Marshmallows along with a jar of Hot Cocoa Mix.

Hot Cocoa + Mexican Vanilla Marshmallows Combo

If you follow my blog then you know that I LOVE hot chocolate, and will usually have a cup of hot chocolate each night (almost year round).  So, I am always up for trying new hot cocoa mixes and adding ones that taste good to my favorites list, and stocking up so I have to enjoy year round.

Who doesn't love making s'mores?  I have so many great memories this summer of our family sitting around the firepit making s'mores.  The girls are finally old enough to roast their own marshmallows and put together their s'mores themselves.  Oh, how I miss eating their overly toasted marshmallows they would cook up for me. :-)  We even had fun this summer on rainy days making s'more indoors thanks to our microwave and our s'more supplies.  Even though the Big Kid S'mores kit from Amy's Ice Creams could be enjoyed by kids and adults, I see this kit being a great gift to give your sweety or picking up to enjoy during an upcoming at-home date night.  What is better than take out, followed by making your own s'mores with gourmet chocolate and biscuit, and ending the night with a good movie.  Great idea, right?! 

The kind folks at Amy's Ice Creams sent along their Big Kid's S'mores kit and their Hot Cocoa + Mexican Vanilla Marshmallows Combo set the other day for me to review (you can buy these gifts separate as a S'mores Kit Combo where you get the S'mores Kit and the hot cocoa and marshmallows all for only $29.99.  

Big Kid S'mores Kit

What a great way to wrap up with holiday gift guide this year, which features over 300 wonderful products for everyone on your shopping list (from kids to adults).  I planned a fun at-home date night for my husband and I Friday night.  I didn't tell him we would be making s'mores...which are one of his favorite snacks and guilty pleasures.  After dinner, I pulled out the Big Kid S'mores kit to show him, and he was all smiles.  He had no idea, though, that this kit was more than just your average milk chocolate bar and graham crackers.  

Take a look at what you get when you purchase the Big Kid S'mores kit from Amy's Ice Cream...

I love Biscoff gourmet cookies.  They have just the right amount of crunch and are great to dip in teas, coffee and hot chocolate. I never thought to use them in place of graham crackers to make s'mores.  But, after trying them with the Mexican Vanilla marshmallows and the rich Belgian Callebaut dark chocolate included in the Big Kid S'mores Kit, I don't think I can eat a s'mores any other way now.  This was SOOOOO good!  While I would cute the marshmallow in half next time for easier eating, I didn't mind scraping up the ooey gooey marshmallow off the plate after I sunk my teeth in the crunchy Biscoff cookie and tasted all the delicious big kid flavors -- gourmet cookie, chocolate and marshmallow.  Yum!

 I am getting hungry just thinking back to how good these s'mores were. 

Because the cookies are only small, you may find yourself thinking you will be able to eat a few in seating.  But, be warned, after one or two you will find yourself getting full.

I had paired the s'mores with the hot cocoa and marshmallow from Amy's Ice Creams, as I was eager to try the hot chocolate. 

And, I have to say, after having tried so many hot cocoa mixes over the years, this is hands down one of my favorites.  It was easy to make and was so rich and creamy. 

If you are a chocoholic like me, then you must try this hot cocoa and the big kid s'mores kit from Amy's Ice Creams.  

Just look at the marshmallows below.  And, they don't melt down into the hot chocolate, but get softy enough that with each sip,you get a little bit of the marshmallow stuck to your lips and will have to lick it off.  

But, the best part is when you are done with the cocoa and get to eat the marshmallow left in the bottom, which has soaked up all the chocolate goodness of the hot cocoa.  It is like the icing on the cake, as you finish off your cocoa for the night.  Your belly will surely be happy, and match the smile you will have on your face. :-)

With only Monday (Tomorrow) and Tuesday left on their shipping schedule to order and receive your holiday gifts in time for Christmas, don't delay in heading over to Amy's Ice Creams today and placing your order for their big kid s'mores kits, the hot cocoa or the Mexican vanilla marshmallows. I will be heading over to their online store after I finish this post to stock up on the hot cocoa and my marshmallows.  My girls saw the s'mores kit Saturday morning and wanted one for breakfast.  I couldn't say "No," as I was secretly hoping to wake and make another one to enjoy, after having them the night before.  You can't help but want to indulge in this gourmet version of everyone's favorite comfort snack, s'mores.  And, once you try it with the Biscoff cookie and Amy's Ice Creams marshmallow, you will not want to enjoy it any other way.

So, what are you waiting for?  Head on over to Amy's Ice Creams today and order from their online store.  In addition to the items I mentioned above, they also offer a wonderful peppermint bark, peppermint hot fudge, their popular hot fudge and even a Mexican Vanilla candle that smells just like their delicious tasting marshmallows.
