I’ve made Brazilian cheese bread, Pao De Queijo, a few times on this blog, trying out different recipes.

I love these chewy cheese puff breads so much that I’m always eager to check out more recipes. Recently I decided to check out a different recipe. Rather than just following it as is, I wanted to play around with the flavor.

I originally wanted to a jalapeno version but I didn’t have any peppers.  Instead I decided to add an American twist on these Brazilian breads, by adding bacon bits and cheddar cheese.

Recently I was contacted by a PR representative for Souplantation. She had come across my previous post on Souplantation, and offered me two complimentary passes to check out the new seasonal menu offerings at Souplantation.

After a particularly hard workout, I was feeling quite achy and tired the other day, and having some hot soups and fresh muffins sounded perfect for dinner. So off we went to redeem our complimentary dinner passes.

Cherries were featured on the menu that night (unfortunately, I couldn’t get this post out earlier and the cherry menu ends June 28. However, if you sign up for souplantation emails you will get emails with new features and menu items, so you can always be informed as to what is being featured when.)

We started off with our salads.

My oreo kick continues with these no bake cookies and cream bar treats. Similar to a rice krispies treat, crushed oreos are held together with marshmallows and butter.

The end result is a yummy, chewy, cookies and cream creation.
