A Valentines Day Treat, Raspberry Sweeties (Guest Post)

I am so very excited to have my very first guest poster here on Bakeaholic Mama.

I'd like to introduce you all to Tonya from 4 little Fergusons.

The first time I stumbled on Tonya's blog via facebook I liked her right away.

Reading her About Me and About Us sections of her blog... I feel like I'm reading about my life! Not only is she a stay at home mom, but her hubs is in sales (as is mine), and she has a crew of little ones all close in age. Looking at her pictures I can't help but say awww, her kiddos are really something cute! 

And seriously... does anyone else see that she looks like Katy Perry??!!

4 Little Fergusons, is full of great family photos, day to day musings of a Stay at Home Mom, and tons of fun recipes.... I mean how good do these Butterfinger Whoopie Pies  sound? And you know you want to try this Buffalo Chicken Hot Wing Dip for this weekends Super Bowl don't you??!!!

But enough of me talking, lets give a big welcome to Tonya from 4 little Fergusons!

Hi there, Bakeholic readers! My name is Tonya and I blog over at 4 little Fergusons.  I am so honored to be posting for Carrie today. 

Let me tell you a bit about myself, I am a midwest mom of 4, 3 of those munchkins arriving in the last 3 years.  The words spoken most often at my house:

“Hello”, “Goodbye” and “I’m Pregnant.”

I guess if I was being truthful, you’d also hear the words: ”I said No!” and “I need FIRST time obedience,” as well.  All this, set to the backdrop of: “It’s MIIIIINE“. 

Hey, I have a bunch of little people in my world, what do you expect?  :)

I am addicted to photos of my kids, trying new recipes and I love to “talk shop” with other momma’s. I am into natural remedies, full-fat, real butter kind of cooking, limiting TV time to promote reading, “Slow obedience is NO obedience”, and making all those little moments count. I have been blessed to be at stay at home mom over 8 years now!  I may not get overtime or paid vacation in my line of work, but I think I have the best job in the whole world!

It’s February 1st already and that means Valentines Day is right around the corner, and do I have a treat for you!  Forget chocolate covered strawberries, it’s time to change things up a bit and these Raspberry Sweeties are just the ticket for a romantic night for 2. 

Raspberry Sweeties

Pint or two of Raspberries
Bag of white chocolate chips for the small raspberries
Bag of Ghirardelli Chocolate chips for the big raspberries

Wash and pat dry raspberries, stuff with different chocolate chips depending on raspberry size and enjoy!

A great big thank you to Carrie, for letting me share with you today!

--Tonya, thank you so much for sharing your fantastic Valentines Day recipe with us! I can't wait to make these with my kiddos. I just know they'll love helping me stuff the raspberries!
