prterrell,

WOW! I love all of your combinations. I always make the same thing and I need to do something different other than a choc cake with my homemade strawberry filling mixed with Bettercreme or Choc Bettercreme mixed with Reese's peanut buttter cups.

Can I please ask you a few questions about some of your flavors or are they secret?

Thanks

Peridot,

Pretty much all of those flavors can be achieved by adding extracts or flavorings to your favorite BC recipe.

Cheers!

I like to make WBH BC, and love to use mix-ins:

Any frozen or fresh berry
Jams and Jellies
Peanut Butter
Caramel
Melted chocolate

And today, I came up with a new flavor - my best yet! Maple syrup, with sliced almonds! OMG Good. I'm adding it to my filling list.

Chocolate chip? How do you make that...with actual chocolate chips or flavored to taste like chocolate chip?

Mine is boring, looking for new flavors as well, basically, I've done, Cinnamon, Vanilla, Almond, Rasberry, Cheesecake.
