MaraNatha®I’ve partnered with MaraNatha to bring you this Peanut Butter & Pretzel Truffle recipe along with info on their free sampling event at The Great Candy Run in Denver, Colordo on 11/12/17. #TooGoodForJelly
There’s some sad news in the world of peanut butter and jelly. MaraNatha, makers of natural and delicious almond butters and velvety peanut butters, has decided it’s ‘Too Good for Jelly’ and they’ve broken up. Jelly is absolutely heartbroken and can’t get over the breakup, so Jelly has started following MaraNatha® around. They’re both headed to Denver, Colorado for The Turkey Trot and The Great Candy Run because MaraNatha® will be there for a couple of taste test events.
Peanut Butter is a staple in most homes and it’s great in a variety of ways, like on a spoon straight out of the jar. If your a kid then it’s best on your finger. My kids love peanut butter, like MaraNatha®, and it’s a great way for me to feed them wholesome, natural food that I know they’ll enjoy. It’s easy, convenient, and goes with so many great things like waffles, apples, and crackers, but is perfectly good on it’s own too.
Taste Test Events
MaraNatha® will be holding free taste testing events this weekend at The Turkey Trot on Saturday Nov 11th and The Great Candy Run on Sunday Nov 12th. Our family is headed to The Great Candy run where my kids will be running in the (free) kids fun run, enjoying MaraNatha® nut butters, looking for Jelly, and playing at the free family activities going on.
MaraNatha® is one of America’s largest producers of natural and organic nut butters. MaraNatha specializes in crafting delicious peanut butter and velvety smooth almond
butter, including organic and flavored options for both. Born of the purest ingredients – with no trans fats, hydrogenated oils or preservatives – its wholesome nut butters are the perfect choice for nut-lovers.
MaraNatha uses only the highest quality ingredients and inspects every product for safety at each point in the production process – from raw materials, to the jarred nut butters that reach
grocery stores nationwide. MaraNatha produces nut butters in its Ashland facility under the watchful eye of its dedicated employees, some of whom have been part of the MaraNatha family for over two decades. MaraNatha sources all of its almonds from California. MaraNatha nut butters are roasted in small batches for a distinct flavor and an unforgettable taste. You can find it in a store near you to enjoy!
I love baking for the Holiday and often times will make a variety of things, put them in a tin, and give them to family, friends, and neighbors as gifts. Things like cookies, fudge, brownies, and truffles. With the Holidays just around the corner I am starting to put my list of Holiday treats together and this year I’ll be making Peanut Butter & Pretzels Truffles. With just a few ingredients these are oh so delicious!
I hope you’ll come out and join us next weekend with MaraNatha® and Jelly!
