“You ready to cook?” asked Kristen Olson, a raven-haired beauty dressed in Betty Crocker's signature red. With a wink and smile, she settled herself comfortably at the countertop.
I’ll be honest. The whole situation felt wildly surreal. I’d flown in that morning and was now standing in the Betty Crocker® Kitchens, with its rows of gleaming appliances and the hum of dedicated staff baking up plate after plate of delectable treats.
And now, the BettyCrocker.com food editor was waiting to see if I was ready to cook with HER. How exciting is that?! I was more than ready to dive into the kitchen alongside her talented self.
On the menu was a new cookie. Beginning with a basic Betty Crocker® Peanut Butter Cookie mix, we’d be baking Fluffernutter Cookies, a crazy-fab combination of peanut butter, marshmallow and chocolate ganache.
Though Kristen and I had emailed back and forth a few ideas for the recipe, neither of us had ever made it. So we were excited to get our fingers on some spatulas to see if our creation would work (and taste!) as good as it sounded in our heads.
With bowl in hand, we mixed up a batch of Betty Crocker® Peanut Butter Cookie Mix according to package directions.
