So Bakeable is a monthly subscription box that sends baking lessons to your door. I like to think of it as a combination baking meal kit and craft box. Each month, you’ll receive attractive, easy-to-follow directions along with all of the baking supplies you’ll need (minus eggs, butter and milk). The results are gorgeous and absolutely delicious! Although So Bakeable’s boxes are certainly suitable for experienced bakers, they’re so well done that even beginners can make Pinterest-worthy desserts on their very first tries! Boxes cost $29.95 each plus shipping, and discounts are available with longer-term prepaid subscriptions.
This card was in the box welcoming us to the box. The box had the recipes and everything you need (except eggs, milk and oil) to make Choc Mousse Meringues and Chocolate Caramel Bars.
There is also a So Bakeable app that you can download.
Each of the two baking kits is wrapped in brown paper like this and sealed with an identifying sticker.
The first recipe was for Choc Mousse Meringues. The recipe was a little simpler than most of the So Bakeable recipes. It fit neatly on the front and back of a 5×7 card.
Here’s everything for making your meringues.
Well, except for the eggs. You have to supply those your self. And a little milk later on.
You separate the egg whites and add the itsy bitsy meringue pack to a mixing bowl and mix it until you get soft peaks. The little pack lives much larger than it looks!
The aforementioned meringue mix.
Then you add this sugar a spoonful at a time. The end result is a glossy and stiff. You can turn the bowl upside down and it won’t fall out!
Next you spoon out 9 mounds on to a cookie sheet lined with the provided parchment paper. Make a hollow in the center with a spoon and bake. You bake these low and slow. 225 degrees for 1 hr 30 minutes.
While you are waiting for your meringues to bake you can mix up your mousse topping/filling. You mix the mousse mix with 1/3 cup milk (you provide) until stiff peaks form. Make sure your meringues are cool before you add the mousse to them.
The chocolate curls and the cocoa are for topping/decorating the meringues.
They turned out beautifully. Light fluffy clouds of chocolatey goodness.
I wish you could taste these!
While I was making the meringues I found this in the bottom of the box. It’s a cute little whisk with a metal heart in the center. I nearly missed it! I used it to mix the next recipe…
Chocolate Caramel Bars. It’s what’s for dinner. Seriously. The kids had cereal and I had one of these. Don’t judge me.
Here’s all the supplies in the baking kit for the Chocolate Caramel Bars. This recipe was slightly more complicated. But, don’t worry, they walk you through it step by step.
First you form the cookie base to your bars.
Line a loaf pan with the included parchment paper. There are two pieces, one to lie in each direction, so that you can easily lift your bars out once you are done.
You cream together butter and sugar. Then add the cookie mix.
Press the dough into the bottom of your lined loaf pan and bake.
Now for the hard part. You boil water, add butter and stir till it melts.
In another bowl you combine the caramel mix and the water butter combo. Whisk (with the cute little heart whisk) until combined.
You set the caramel mixture aside and in a pan you combine the brown sugar with butter and cook until it starts bubbling. You then add the caramel mixture and stir until your arm falls off. Using your other arm, poor the mixture over the cooled cookie base and bake it again.
The last layer is just melted chocolate with a teensy bit of milk mixed in.
You just melt the chocolate chips in the microwave and pour it over the top of the cooled caramel layer.
And lastly, for the topping you sprinkle with the cookie crumbs.
And, the totally awesome gold chocolate rocks.
Here is my bars before I sliced them up. The parchment paper made it super easy to pull out of the pan.
I love how these turned out! They were beautiful! They tasted a lot like a Twix bar.
The So Bakeable box is a great way to deeper delve into the sweets and confections baking world. Having all the ingredients pre-measured and all together ready to go definitely makes the process easier and more pleasant. The Choc Mousse Meringues were my favorite this month. The light airy meringues topped with the fluffy chocolaty goodness of the mousse and the melt in your mouth chocolate curls was simply delightful.
