Hot Links We’re Loving:
• Classifying batter as part of a raw diet may sound like a stretch, but Minimalist Baker makes a vegan Brownie Batter Spread that might just make the cut. A simple blend of nuts, chocolate and dates, each bite tastes just like a fudgy brownie – and is just as pleasant to lick from the bowl.
• Wrap up the World Cup with forkless snacks that hit the coffee table quickly – and leave your hands free for aggressive cheering. These Sticky Sesame Chicken Wings from Smitten Kitchen are roasted, not fried. You can toss them in their hoisin-honey glaze between plays.
• The sidewalks aren’t the only thing that’ll be scorched this summer. Hummingbird High dreamed up Strawberry Crème Brûlée that gives a crackly, caramelized spin to the classic berries-and-cream combo.
