I feel a little bit strange coming here and telling you that I, too, have entered the Death by Chocolate Contest held by the great folks from Culinate. I feel even stranger asking people to vote for me or give me their approval but posting about chocolate is an offer I can't refuse! With time being a precious commodity while my mother is visiting I am really thankful that the rules allow bloggers to post past entries.
I was excited to enter just for the theme....and then they told us the prizes on hand if we won: one food blogger and one reader will be sent on a trip for two to Napa Valley and will attend the Copia Center’s annual Death by Chocolate Festival on Feburary 23, 2008. Talk about generosity! The winner among readers will be chosen at random from all entries. Readers will vote for their favorite blog posts, and the winning food blogger will be selected by a panel of judges from the top 10 reader favorites. The entries I have seen so far are absolutely mouth watering.
Will I make you drool with these Nutella Creams and Chocolate Macarons? I hope so....Nutella...whipped cream...hmmmhmmmhmmm
Why would I love to win? Well, the only thing that comes to my mind this close to Valentine's Day is that my husband and I will celebrate our 10th anniverary this year and we have never gone on a honeymoon...No sunny beaches, no exotic trip...He was tied home badly sick and he still feels terrible about it. I keep telling him that I don't need a honeymoon to make me love him more and I think that rewarding him with a nice trip to Napa would prove that come hail or high water, I am his girl.
So.....if you feel like this Nutella Cream and Chocolate Macarons post is deserving of your vote, you can do on by clicking on the picture below. Voting start today an ends February 8th. Many many many thanks!
