I get excited every season when the new baking products come out, and so far this year has not disappointed. Have you seen the new Nestle Springtime morsels? They come in 10 ounce bags and are a mixture of semi-sweet chocolate chips, yellow, and pink morsels (reminiscent of white chocolate). I substituted a bag into my favorite chocolate chip oatmeal pudding cookies, and sent them to school with my husband to treat his students with. The kids loved them, and they were an incredibly festive and jovial treat for good behavior.
