My review: I was asked to make one of the recipes found on the Auntie Anne's site with my at home baking kit. They have dessert pizza, pretzel rolls, monkey bread, apple dumplings, deep dish pizza,pretzel dogs, pretzel stuffing, pumpkin bread pudding recipes and more. I chose monkey bread for a couple reasons. One is it's delicious and two is it's fun for the kids to help roll the balls in the sugar mix. So once we started it was pretty easy to make. I used my electric stand mixer to combine the yeast, water mix and flour. Then you just set it out to rise for 30 min. and you are ready to roll it into balls and cover it with the sugar mixture and butter.Place the balls in the bundt pan and bake. The kit has a lot of the ingredients although you do need a little sugar, butter, cinnamon and cooking spray.Those are probably things you already have. Check the recipe here for more detailed instructions. This is a great product to use during the holidays because there are so many options of different recipes to make for family guests and friends. We liked the monkey bread and I am interested in trying out some of the other recipes too. The pretzel dogs look good.
Thank you Auntie Anne's for providing the product for the purpose of the review.
