Nostalgia Electrics Review and Giveaway

There's nothing like baking. I'm always in my kitchen whipping up a patch of peanut butter brownies or chocolate chip cookies. Especially now that the holiday season is here, I'm baking more than ever. I love that cracking some eggs in a bowl, adding flour, sugar, and various other ingredients and then stirring creates delicious baked goods. Everyone loves sweet treats and it's fun to create delicious treats that people go crazy for.



Nostalgia Electrics specializes in home entertainment and family fun. Whether you're looking for a movie theatre popcorn style machine, snow cone maker, or quesadilla maker they have you covered and much more. The machines are fun, affordable and definite conversation starters. How fun would it be to have a chocolate fountain at your Christmas party or next get together? It would be an instant hit!

I was sent a mini cupcake maker for review. I love to make cupcakes so this was right up my alley.



The mini cupcake maker allows you to cook delicious cupcakes and other pastries at home without even turning on an oven. The kit includes a handy tray for serving and displaying your cupcakes as well as a frosting injector with a variety of tips for decorating. It’s great for snack time, party time or anytime! Delectable desserts and hors d'oeuvres are ready in minutes.
Features Include:
- Makes 7 mini cupcakes at one time
- Nonstick coating
- Convenient cord storage
- Power and preheat indicator lights
- 5-7 minutes cooking time
- Includes food storage tin, decorating kit and cupcake tray

The concept of this machine is very cute, but in the long run it is easier to make cupcakes in the oven. The batter that you make is a full-sized batter that is the same amount as real cupcake batter. The machine only makes 7 cupcakes at a time and takes about 6 minutes to cook each batch. It is time consuming, and in the end I ended up making 14 brownie bites and then using the rest of the batter for making brownies in the oven. This cupcake maker would be a great activity for your daughter or grand daughter to do with her friends at a sleep over. I know I would have loved to do something like this when I was a kid. I like that it comes with a cute serving tray and decorating kit. It also comes with a recipe book which has some yummy cupcake recipes inside like lemon, chocolate, red velvet etc. I found my brownie bites recipe in the book. This would be a fantastic present for a girl who loves baked goods but isn't quite ready to bake real cupcakes yet.

Here are the brownie bites I made. They were quite yummy! They were cooked through evenly and had a great chocolate taste. Be careful though because the machine gets VERY hot after the treats are done. I advise you to use a spatula or something to wedge them out. You all know that I LOVE anything chocolate! If you're hosting a Christmas party this year, a great idea would be to make little mini decorated cupcakes with this machine to put on your dessert table. I'm sure they will all be gone instantly!
