Welcome to #Choctoberfest 2016 and a #Giveaway

   Now I know I've been holding out on you... and that really isn't like me.  I get WAY to excited to keep a secret like this normally.  But with #appleweek and #pumpkinweek, I just haven't had the time to fully prepare you for what is about to come.  That is right... it's time to celebrate all things chocolate.  First we are going to have this giveaway of all sorts of delicious things that could arrive at your door just in time for all of your holiday baking.  Do yourself a favor and scroll down and just look at the prize.  The delivery man is going to have to get out his heavy duty dolly to get it all to your door!!  I mean we are talking HUUUUUUUUGE!

   After we get through entering to win an entire season's worth of sugar and other goodies, we will start sharing delicious chocolate themed recipes.  I can't wait to see what everyone is making.  If only I could try them all!  Now let's get to the meat of the matter...

  1. Thanks for such a nice giveaway. I know you didn't come up with the question for this giveaway because you would never ask a girl to choose her favorite chocolate mine just might be the fudge icing on my birthday cake.

    1. You're right! It's like choosing a favorite kid ;-)

  2. So so fun Carlee! I'd have to say my favorite chocolate would have to have caramel with it! lol.

    1. Mmmm! That is one of my favorite ways to have chocolate too!

  3. Hi Carlee, oh my! I'm on sugar high just looking at the recipes! Mississippi mud brownies and peanut butter pretzel truffles both sound to die for. I've had this strong urge to get baking recently, I may just have to give in!


    1. Don't they all look and sound amazing? Bake away!

  4. I love to make chocolate mousse!

    1. I need to find a good chocolate mousse recipe. I love it, but don't have a go-to recipe yet.
