Bloggy Giveaway: You Know it's Chocolate!!

I am so excited to be a part of the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival this week!! Click on the link to see all the great giveaways - how fun.

I just HAD to give away something to do with chocolate. I am giving a small cookbook called Cookshelf Chocolate and some dark chocolate from Trader Joe's. The cookbook is a nice, thick little book with 120 chocolate recipes and photos for each (as I'm flipping through it, I'm realizing that it will be hard to give up - the recipes look so good)! And dark chocolate needs no explanation except...yum. A lot of the recipes call for dark chocolate so you will have to decide if you want to use the chocolate for a recipe or just eat it!

In order to enter my giveaway, please leave a comment on this post and tell me how many days, or hours, or minutes (seconds??) since you last ate chocolate!

This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only, but you don't have to be a blogger. Just make sure to leave a way for me to contact you - blog or e-mail address. The contest will close on Saturday, 4/26 at 9pm Pacific. 1 winner will be chosen randomly. I will e-mail the winner by Monday 4/28 and you will have 3 days to respond or I will have to choose a new winner.

Have fun and don't forget to check out the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival! I look forward to hearing your comments...

  46. Oh, this is sad - I literally just had to move a little container of brownie bites back to the kitchen because I kept "popping" them while I was entering the giveaways! So, what 30 seconds ago???? What's even sadder, I only bought them when I ran into the grocery store to pick up a gallon of milk for breakfast tomorrow morning. That's ALL I was supposed to get!!! :o)
    What a cool giveaway! Thanks so much for offering it!
