Calling Serious Chocolate Lovers - A Giveaway


Are you a serious chocolate lover like me? I know not everyone is, including my son who doesn't understand how I can eat dark chocolate. I prefer pure, organically grown with cane sugar and no additives. I have a chocolate square after my dinner and call it dessert. 

 Imagine my surprise when a representative of Honduras Chocolate Company from Denver, CO contacted me to see if I wanted to receive a box of chocolate made from organically-grown, single-origin cacao, grown and manufactured in the rainforests of Honduras. All their chocolate products are gluten-free (several friends and family members will appreciate this), dairy-free and non GMO. 

The cacao is grown by an exclusive network of Honduran farmers, and the company invests in the farmers, their families and pay higher-than-fair-trade prices. They are passionate about chocolate as well as Honduras, and the company was founded to provide a sustainable economic solution, ensuring a brighter future and stronger economic outlook...one chocolate bar at a time.

Just leave me a comment telling me how you use dark chocolate in your baking (it's great in brownies), and I will pick a winner on January 14. The winner will receive a flight of bars so you can taste the different cacao percentages (just in time to make your Valentine's Day dessert). Thank you to HondurasChocolateCompany.com for this wonderful giveaway!

  1. Most of our dark chocolate gets eaten straight, but I do sometimes make a molten chocolate cake from a recipe a friend brought over from France. It's always a big hit, and makes a great birthday cake!

  5. Chocolate is a staple in our home. Like you, I like to have a bite after a meal. It makes the perfect ending. I also make a chocolate sauce for ice cream or other treats. At a recent dinner party, I drizzled it over poached pears for dessert. My husband drinks hot chocolate during the winter. Not the hot chocolate mixes, but real coco blended into milk and heated.

  6. Dark chocolate and I are very best friends. Other than using coco in cakes, I tend to buy the dark chocolate that is wrapped in foil, and it goes into a pretty cut glass bowl that belonged to my Mother, and each time I walk past that bowl, the chocolate calls my name, which means the pretty bowl is often empty. It didn't last through the holidays..

  7. I like making a dark chocolate ganache & pouring it on top of an iced chocolate cake. Give it another layer of chocolatey goodness.

  8. Dark chocolate is my preferred choice when I am baking chocolate goodies, especially for the cake batter and ganache of my 8 layer doberge/dobashe cake (my extra special cake!).

  9. I love using dark chocolate in cheesecake, brownies, cakes, and milkshakes. There's nothing better than a dark chocolate cheese cake or brownie!

  10. I hope you and yours had a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and are having a very HAPPY NEW YEAR. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at SiteHoundSniffs.com.

  12. What a delicious giveaway, Debbie! I always have chocolate in my pantry and in a candy dish! Homemade hot fudge sauce is a favorite and chocolate molten cakes, too. Looks like you're having a yummy start to 2017. xo

  13. For me, it's dark chocolate or no chocolate :) I do my square (or two) after lunch. I would love to taste these Honduran chocolates, Debbie~ One of my favorite ways to use dark chocolate is in Dorie's Chocolate Pots de Creme. My family asks for them on special occasions :)

  14. I'm like you and have one square of dark chocolate every evening after dinner. And I'm like Susan, if it is not dark, I'd rather not have it. Chocolate brownies are always a favorite when baking.

  16. You just made me want to go back to Honduras! I had an amazing 2 weeks there on the Island of Roatan, when I was 21. Someday I'll get to go back, hopefully soon. I use dark chocolate for dipping fruit and making healthy snacks. Chocolate covered pineapple, bananas, strawberries. I've even dipped kiwis. Thanks for the chance!
