Check out these puppies.

So, the Tour of America menu at Denny's is the whole reason behind wanting to do a chain restaurant week for MoFo this year. But then, Denny's rolled out the "Let's Get Cheesy" menu, and I was sure I'd be rolling up my sleeves for a Daiya-stravaganza. Instead, I thought it would be fun to get a bag of Oppenheimer's white chocolate chips and make the Strawberry White Chocolate Pancake Puppies. Except of course, my local purveyor of vegan white chocolate chips was sold out, and it would cost a me an extra $7 to get them shipped. The day I spend $12 on a bag of fucking white chocolate chips is the day I win the friggin' lottery, and in that case, I would order a TON of shit online, and wouldn't care that I'd normally have to grab my ankles for shipping costs.

So, I made do with dark chocolate chips, and a swirl of raspberry preserves.

Here they are, nestled in my ugly cupcake carrier.

I drizzled (okay, doused) these guys in cream cheese icing after cooling off from being deep fried. I had two. My coworkers ate the rest. I am way too hard on myself, and apologized for how "brown" they turned out, but they got awesome reviews. They're very easily made using pancake batter thickened with some cornstarch, and dropped into a deep fryer, which I don't have. My stove is kind of a mess.

Yesterday, Wayfare Foods caught wind of my post about the Chicken Enchilada Soup. The marketing director made it, and they are sending me a coupon to give away to one of my readers! Yeah! If you live in the US, and have a place where you can pick up "We Can't Say It's Cheese" or any other Wayfare product, please leave a comment below. I'll choose one at random, and it's all yours! Just tell me in your comment what you're going to make with it. Thanks!

Our family loves to just put their "cream cheese" on bagels or crackers.

hehe, when I saw the title of your post I thought there were going to be photos of puppy dogs!

I'm not sure what I'd make with We Can't Say It's Cheese...perhaps your enchilada soup!

I would probably make nachos or something else quick and easy. Thanks for offering such a nice giveaway!

I'm not sure what I'd use Wayfare's cheese sauce for, but it'd be for something delicious, I'm sure. Stuffed poblanos, nachos, macaroni and cheese.
