Twisted Tuesdays

A Twist on Olives is excited to announce Twisted Tuesdays! Every Tuesday we will feature a new recipe highlighting one (or more) of our products. As a gift to our customers we will offer a 10% discount on the featured product(s) for that week only. This is a great way to try a new flavor or stock-up on a product you already love!!

Since we are officially in the hot dog days of summer, we set out to create a new “no-bake” recipe!   This week’s Twisted Tuesday Recipe, Coconut Almond Snack Mix, will keep your kitchen cool and features our Coconut Balsamic Vinegar and Butter EVOO!

If you like Almond Joy candy bars, then this is going to be your new favorite summer treat!  Our recipe is adapted from the traditional “puppy chow” recipe that uses cereal, peanut butter, chocolate and powdered sugar.  Our “twist” on the recipe is to swap out almond butter for the peanut butter, add milk chocolate chips, Butter EVOO and dash of our Coconut Balsamic Vinegar.  The almond mixture is then heated in the microwave and poured over the cereal.  To finish off the recipe, we simply placed the coated cereal in a Ziploc bag with powdered sugar and finely chopped coconut.  The end result is a delicious sweet treat . . .  made in about 5 minutes without breaking a sweat! 

Stop in the store this week and receive a 10% savings on our Coconut Balsamic Vinegar and Butter EVOO!   We hope to see you soon!!
