My Raisinet Hosties Party

I recently joined a group through Facebook called the Hosties.  It is a application on Facebook that allows you to apply for sponsered events/parties.  I applied for my first sponsorship and to my surprise was actually picked.  It was for a Raisinet sponsorship.  The whole process was extremely easy the application helps you set-up your event and send out the evites to your friends/family.  Once you plan your date for you party, Hosties sends along your party package a few days ahead of your party date.  

In our Raisinet package we received 2 packages of milk chocolate Raisinets, 1 package of dark chocolate Raisinets, and 1 package of milk chocolate cranberry Raisinets, as well as a few recipes to try out.  I immediately set-out to have a baking party, and bake we did!  We made brownies, and cookies, and bars GALORE!  They all turned out fantastic and the Raisinets really helped to add something a little different to the recipes.  Here is the Cranberry Raisinet Oatmeal bar recipe that we made:
