The Swiss Colony Miniature Baklava Desserts Review & Giveaway


I am a fairly adept cook.  But there are some items I hope never to make.  Sure, I probably could make them.  It would take all day or multiple days, they might be delicious, or it could turn out as a total flop.  But it’s just not worth my time or effort.  Baklava is a dessert item I hope never to make.  It is delicious, rich, wonderful and an item I plan on purchasing for the rest of my life.

With 50 paper thin phyllo layers piled with finely-chopped walnuts and spices and then drenched with honey syrup these dessert pieces make the perfect indulgent treat.

Each piece is approximately a two bite sweet treat.  Therefore this is perfect size if you can control yourself and eat only one.  Good luck!

This Miniature Baklava Dessert is available in 20, 35, or 70 pieces making it the perfect holiday gift giving idea.  The Thanksgiving and Christmas season are chalked full of fun or obligatory party functions and this gold box packaged treat is an easy, but delicious hostess gift!

Or perhaps in all the hustle and bustle of the season you just need a special treat for yourself:)  Whatever the reason, The Swiss Colony makes delectable desserts that are easier to order than make yourself.  Sometimes its just best to leave it to the experts!

The Swiss Colony has been around since 1926 from Monroe, Wisconsin.  That might not mean a lot to all my readers from various parts of the U.S., but I have a soft spot for companies from the Midwest.

If you are looking for a delicious treat this holiday season be sure to check out the wide range of products available at The Swiss Colony.  And connect via Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest for additional up-to-date information.

The Swiss Colony has kindly offered one lucky Mama Report reader a box of the Miniature Baklava Desserts like the one I received pictured above!

Please use the Rafflecopter entry method provided.

U.S. only.  Winner will be verified.
