Giveaway! GIR® Get It Right Kitchen Tools + A Bonus Snickerdoodle Recipe
Feeling lucky? Let’s start celebrating St. Patrick’s Day early! Today you can win three amazing pieces of GIR® Get It Right Kitchen Tools. The Mini Spatula in Red, Mini Spoon in Orange and Mini Flip in Teal can be part of your kitchen by entering to win on @makeandtaste Instagram account. I’m so excited to be partnering with GIR® for this giveaway and am equally excited for whoever wins this amazing prize. My little kitchen helper has claimed one of these mini spatulas as his own and always uses it while we make recipes. If you need more reason to enter, how about a great recipe to make one once you receive these products. Follow the rainbow of colors to your pot of gold, or in this case a small batch snickerdoodle recipe. These soft snickerdoodles have a great cinnamon flavor and sugar crunch. Simply combine the wet ingredients with a hand mixer and add the dry ingredients into the same bowl. Scrape down the bowl with the GIR® Mini Spatula in Red, Mix the Cinnamon Sugar coating mixture with the GIR® Mini Spoon in Orange and transfer the cooled cookies to a cooling rack with the GIR® Mini Flip in Teal.
My little kitchen helper always loves to mix all the ingredients and the added bonus of rolling the dough into cinnamon sugar was an extra treat. The silicone products from GIR® have been a great addition to my kid friendly tools. The mini versions, especially. Let’s face it, I use them as well, but having a tool appropriate for toddlers to use it always a bonus.
So here are the contest details. Just head over to Instagram and follow @makeandtaste and @GIR and tag two friends. Giveaway ends Sunday 3.19.17. The winner will be announced Monday 3.20.17.
