We said goodbye to summer this week, which I was sad about. I know routine is good, but it was so nice to have time with my family enjoying the summer sun, the pool, the beach, travel, exploring, camp fires, catching fireflies, and all the other wonderful things that go along with summer time. It was a great summer!
Last month we received a scrumptious delivery, courtesy of See’s Candies*. When we opened the box, we found chocolate treasures that celebrated the flavors of summer berries and See’s own chocolate chips for baking. These were incredible treats to receive! We couldn’t wait to try them. The Summer Berries assortments were delightful, and just the sort of chocolates that I love. Soft centered berry flavors like blueberry, strawberry, and my favorite, raspberry, covered in milk and dark chocolate. Such a wonderful way to indulge in summer fruits! These were so delicious, I am putting it on my list of great gift ideas for friends!
With the end of summer here, it was time to prep for school to start-up again. Part of that, of course is packing lunches. I knew just what I wanted to do with the See’s semi-sweet chocolate chips. It was time to bake some chocolate chip cookies. Following the recipe on the back of the package, we made some Back to School chocolate chip cookies for their lunches.
While I did manage to take a picture of the start of us baking, these cookies were so good that they disappeared before I could get a picture of the finished product. That’s a sign of a irresistible cookie! The recipe is butter based, not shortening based, so the cookies and thin and rich. The chocolate chips from See’s are large morsels, which makes for big chocolate taste throughout the cookies, and my family loved that!
I was so impressed with the products I tried from See’s that I most definitely will be ordering from them again. In fact, I can’t wait to see what their holiday treats are like. These will be perfect for gift giving, simple, easy and delicious!
You can find sweet treats for every one you know by visiting their website. You won’t be disappointed!

See’s does make delicious chocolates. I’ve bought them several times and never been disappointed
Wow, what a yummy Post. Only thing is you have awoken my sweet tooth and there’s no chocolate in the house. It’s okay I’ll just drool over your pictures like I always do. ~hehehe~ Wonderful photos. Thanks for sharing.
Sounds delicious! We love summer berries and this is a great way to bring them into the next season.
I love Sees candies. We just got a few in the mall. Love how they pass out samples and are packaged nicely for gifting.
Ohh Sees is the best! There used to be one right next to the restaurant Iworked in. Bad news for my diet, but great news for me!
Mmm chocolate! You can never turn down some delicious chocolate.
I love chocolate!!! I bet these are amazing!
I can’t imagine Christmas without a box of See’s Candies. I remember having them at my grandmother, my parents and now I make sure we have them every year.
I love chocolate and love cookies. They must have been good to disappear that fast.
Yeah, the box of chocolates is a great gift whatever the occasion. Do you have plans of baking and selling cookies?
Yum chocolate is my favorite thing to eat. I have to check this brand out.
I am so sad summer is over. These look so good though!
I have never heard of See’s Candies. I would love to have a box like this from them and it would make such a great gift. Thanks for sharing.
Those chocolates look so yummy! I’m sad summer is over too, it went by way too fast!
I’ve never heard of the brand before. Looks good though. They also would make a great gift during the holiday.
Those chocolates look divine! & I bet the cookies you made were even better. 🙂
Summer coming to an end is always so sad! However, if I had these chocolates to snack on I don’t think I would be so sad anymore. 😉
I have heard of See’s often. I haven’t tried them though. Years ago there used to be a chocolate with raspberry gel or something inside. I haven’t thought of it in years, but I’m going to go over to the site and see if they have it. 🙂
I will be missing Summer, we still have a couple weeks left though 🙂
yummy! here in malaysia it is always summer! hehe firs time i experience winter i was freezing
I have to say that disappearing cookies is a game we play often… I love chocolate.
tear. I am so sad summer is gone.
No! I am not ready to let go of Summer just yet. Here in OR we have some hot weather left before the rain comes.
I’m equally shocked that summer came to an end so fast… So far, we have maintained the weather here; so hurray! As to See’s chocolates, they carry them in my local CVS Pharmacy and they are reasonably priced.
Now what a perfect way to end the summer right!
Chocolates….. I can say a sweet goodbye to anyone for those relishing chocolates :p
You said goodbye to summer to early!! LOL. It’s still summer in my town!
