Family Fresh Cooking blog chocolate giveaway

This giveaway has now closed. Thanks so much for your entries. The winner is David Junot comment #55. Stay tuned for more fun giveaways coming soon.

I have a sneaky feeling there is gonna be a lot of holiday baking going on. With Thanksgiving fast approaching and then the buzz of Christmas in the air I know we all need some CHOCOLATE. What would the holidays be, or life for that matter without this blissful ingredient. Whether you favor milk, dark, extra dark or even white – let’s face it chocolate is synonymous with LOVE.

Family Fresh Cooking giveaway for Chocolate Brand

The lovely folks at Scharffen Berger and I are teaming up to bring you a BIG gift basket chock full of chocolate everything to get your holiday baking on. Don’t worry, you can also simply munch on pure chocolate bars if you want to go that route. There is more than enough in this gift basket to do lots of baking & tasting along the way.

Recipe for chocolate peppermint layer cake By the way. See all of those goodies above? I made those with my stash of Scharffen Berger. They were the first giveaway I ever ran on Family Fresh Cooking about one year ago. Since then they have become one of my favorite brands to use in recipes. Their chocolate is rich, decadent and pure. If we are gonna use an ingredient in the Family Fresh household, it better be the best we can find.

Scharffen Berger Chocolate Adventure Contest

By the way….did you know about the Chocolate Adventure Contest? This year the theme is Cupcakes. There is a list of adventure ingredients to choose from that need to be incorporated in your masterpiece. I have been concepting my own decadent creation. We have until January 2nd, 2011 to submit. Are you up for the challenge?

Please view my recipe page to see my chocolate creations.

Christina: You are always such a great supporter of my giveaways – thank you for that.

A premium ingredient like Scharffen Berger chocolate deserves a starring role in great recipes where it can truly shine. I have an amazing flourless chocolate torte with a fudge ganache topping recipe I’ve been making for many years. I’d feature the SB chocolate in that torte. For starters anyway. *smile*

Several years ago I went to Paris with a girlfriend in December. We were watching our pennies, staying in a budget hotel, taking advantage of the museums, etc. The most decadent indulgence was at a bistro across the street from the Louvre. A cup of hot cocoa served in a delicate porcelain teacup that was like hot, liquid chocolate mousse. After returning home – I finally figured out how to recreate it. My Parisian Hot Chocolate made with Scharffen Berger chocolate would make it even better.

I know exactly what I would make because I just made it last week and it was fabulous! I had some bananas to use but but didn’t want to make plain old banana bread. I added some cocoa powder to the batter and then had a handful of chocolate chips and walnuts in the pantry and tossed those in as well- AMAZING! More treat than breakfast, but I can already imagine a really good Scharffen Berger chocolate in them– I’m salivating.

Reply

133 Marla November 8, 2010 at 3:42 am

Jenny: Cocoa in the batter of banana bread, now were talking. Great idea – it infuses the recipe with so much more chocolate flavor than just chips. If I sweetened that recipe with just stevia, then it would be a guilt free, high energy breakfast. We are nut for nuts over here.

Kim: Sounds like you have your Adventure Cupcake very well thought out & it is gonna be amazing! Such a great contest theme this year.

Cristina: If you make mini decadent cakes (hence your blog name Teenie Cakes) Then you MUST have me over to taste test!

Denise: I so agree with your statement “A premium ingredient like Scharffen Berger chocolate deserves a starring role in great recipes where it can truly shine.” Sounds like you have many great uses for fine chocolate. Good luck to you!!

I come from a family of chocoholics, so my addiction to chocolate can be blamed on my genes! I’d love to win this prize & bake what’s known in my family only as “Chocolate Death”… enough said!

Oh my gosh, I’m just salivating thinking about this giveaway – if I won, I think I’d make a batch of gourmet brownies with the cocao nibs, then I’d also try my hand at making homemade chocolate truffles.

I’m going to take a look at their chocolate adventure contest too!

151 Cellabella November 8, 2010 at 10:31 am

Hmm, for the Chocolate Adventure contest, I think I’d like to make a vanilla cupcake using the coconut cream and meyer lemon, with a chocolate frosting made with adzuki beans and saffron — too weird?

Yum… CHOCOLATE! Quality dark chocolate, such as Scharffen Berger’s is a must all year long… not just for the holidays! Dark chocolate (65% cocoa or higher) should be consumed everyday! Not only is it yummy but full of health benefits!

Reply

190 Deeta November 10, 2010 at 9:38 am

Did you know that a small bar of dark chocolate has nearly 8 times the number of antioxidants as that found in strawberries? Now dip your strawberries in that! ;o)

Reply

191 Marla November 10, 2010 at 10:02 am

Deeta: Sounds like you know loads about the health benefits of chocolate! I tip my hat to the simple yet fabulous idea of chocolate dipped strawberries. One of my all time favorite ways to enjoy a fine chocolate. I have read that about pregnant women who eat lots of chocolate make happier babies. Here’s to that!

Judy: I need to go look up David Lebowitz’s Orbit Cake because you are the second person to comment on that today. I found this link that looks like it is the one you refer to:
Chocolate Cake
The original is in his book: Ready For Dessert

FYI-A small bar of dark chocolate everyday can lower blood pressure by 10% in those who have high blood pressure. Studies have also shown that women who ate dark chocolate while pregnant have happier babies! Chocolate makes everybody happy!

194 Deeta November 10, 2010 at 9:54 am

Because too much of a good thing isn’t so good, I love the portion control size of cupcakes. If I win the give away, I will be making dark chocolate cupcakes infused with a real strawberry filling, and topped with a yummy dark chocolate icing.

Reply

195 Deeta November 10, 2010 at 10:01 am

I love the fact that your give away comes with so many different high percentages of cocoa. I’ve never tried a 99% baking bar. I’m looking forward to that!

Reply

196 Deeta November 10, 2010 at 10:09 am

As unglamorous as it may be… my favorite way to use Scharffen Berger chocolate is to chocolate dip heart healthy fruits and nuts and enjoy with a glass of vino, since milk diminishes the health benefits of the chocolate.

Reply

197 Deeta November 10, 2010 at 10:28 am

Setting all health benefits aside… I always enjoy a yummy brownie with a dollop of vanilla ice cream!

Reply

198 Deeta November 10, 2010 at 10:30 am

… and wash that brownie alamode down with a nice mug of hot cocoa!

Reply

199 ChocophileNYC November 10, 2010 at 10:39 am

One of my favorite things to make with nibs is cocoa nib cookies – a slight modification of the chocolate chip cookie base then substitute nibs for chocolate chips. To die for!!

I’m also going to try to make a spekuloos tart with a crushed spekuloos cookie shell and a chocolate spekuloos filling.

200 Jennifer November 10, 2010 at 11:16 am

If I win, I’ll use the bars to make hot chocolate and brownies. Then I’ll probably use the rest of the chocoate to make the recipes in that awesome looking cookbook.

I make so many things with chocolate on a regular basis and at Christmas, just bump it up. I adore my Chocolate Salami recipe that I am definitely going to make. I make at least 9 to 12 different truffles each year, too. What else? Hmmm…. I dip things in chocolate, I use it to decorate items… I eat the callets out of the bag sometimes (slap my hand!!!)
Love it.
Great give-a-way. Good for you! :)
