Hello hello! Happy Monday! I know what you're thinking, Mondays are not happy at all. And I agree. Mondays are typically very BLAH. But not this Monday. Why? Because THIS Monday marks the start of #Choctoberfest!
#Choctoberfest is a virtual event put together by The PinterTest Kitchen, in which bloggers from all across the blogiverse will be sharing some of their favorite chocolate recipes all week long. Obviously I had to get in on the action because chocolate is life.
I'm super excited to be sharing some delicious recipes with you this week and also to check out everyone else's. But I'm even more excited that I will be sharing a chance for you all to win some awesome prizes! More on that in a second.
But first, a thank you to our sponsors, starting with our 2015 Gold Sponsor, Imperial Sugar, without which #Choctoberfest wouldn't be possible. Imperial Sugar has been a trusted name in family kitchens since 1843. Their sugar products and sweeteners are made from non-GMO cane sugar and ensure consistently delicious results. I always use Imperial Sugar in my recipes, so I was elated when this arrived at my doorstep last week. Yup, that's 40 pounds of sugar, generously provided by the awesome Imperial Sugar themselves.
You can find Imperial Sugar on Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and more. Make sure you visit the recipes section of their website for some sweet inspiration, and if you'd like to try out Imperial Sugar yourself, you can find coupons on their website as well.
And now back to the prizes! Imperial Sugar and our other sponsors banded together to contribute some awesome prizes for our #Choctoberfest giveaway!
