Zestuous Named Fan Fave in the Saucy Mama Sliced Recipe Contest

Chocolate Stout Pretzel Toffee Bars from ZestuousI made it to the final round of the Saucy Mama Sliced Recipe contest. The top 10 finalists had to make a dessert with mustard and beer. My dessert was so much better than I expected it to be. I made it twice, brought it to work both times and it was devoured.

It’s proof that dark beer, pretzels and mustard really do go well together. Add chocolate and toffee and what could be better?

Well, the Peach Galette with Butterscotch Schnapps Glaze from Juanita’s Cocina apparently was. She took the title of Grand Champion and $1,000.

But I wasn’t left empty handed. Thanks to all of the beautiful Zesties out there, I won Fan Fave. You shared, liked, pinned and commented on my three entries more than 3,000 times. Wow! You are the best!

Here is a list of the dessert entries. I challenge you to try a little mustard in your next dessert. You will be pleasantly surprised.
