Y’all know how I love my chocolate, right? I know. You love it, too. But I didn’t really love chocolate until I won this great Holiday Gift Assortment from Scharffen Berger last year.
And thus began my greatest Love Affair with chocolate. [I’m very pleased to announce we’re still on our honeymoon!].
This summer, Scharffen Berger sponsored a giveaway for these delectable Artisan chocolate bars. Who can forget Wendy’s excitement when she won?
I’ve spent the better part of the last year finding ways to enjoy my Scharffen Berger. Well, we’re taking our romance out in public once more! Scharffen Berger has again agreed to sponsor one of Frankly, My Dear…’s Holiday Gift Basket Giveaways, and what they’re giving away this time will last far longer than their chocolate bars (trust me!).
THE ESSENCE OF CHOCOLATE book is gorgeous. Beautiful. Pretty much, you’ll want to eat the pages. With just under 400 pages, THE ESSENCE OF CHOCOLATE is simply necessary to any chocolate lover’s library.
Filled ~ and I mean filled ~ with full-color photos, detailed chapters, and too many wonderful recipes [wait! I take that back! You can never have too many chocolate recipes!]… it’s everything you never know you needed to know about chocolate.
Since they’re giving you the book, I’ll give you the recipe that started it all.
- 1/2 Cup instant coffee
- 1/2 Cup granulated sugar
- 1 Cup powdered creamer
- 2 TBSP Scharffen Berger Unsweetened Cocoa powder
- 2 TBSP instant hot cocoa mix
- Mix all ingredients together.
- Add 2 rounded teaspoons (or more) to 8 oz. hot water or coffee.
- Stir thoroughly.
Embellish with whipped cream, cinnamon, nutmeg, chocolate shavings, sprinkles or candy canes. Store in air-tight container for months (if it lasts that long!). Use decaffeinated coffee grounds and a sugar substitute if desired.
Thanks to Scharffen Berger, my chocolate love knows no bounds. When you’re finished with the day’s busyness or just like a tasteful dessert drink, turn to Page 103 and make your own indulgent Chocolate Martini.

I love chocolate. Best chocolate dessert in my opinion is old fashion chocolate cake! With a glass of milk!
I found your link through NaBloPoMo. My daughter and I have a huge sweet tooth and love chocolate. I’m going to do some giveaways on my blog in December for the first time so I was curious how other blogs run them. Any advice you have would be great.

There is nothing quite like a hot chocolate molten lava cake. Yum!

Chocolate is my best friend.
Favorite chocolate dessert is chocohotpots (a Nigella Lawson recipe). Decadent and sinful and everything chocolate should be.
My favorite chocolate dessert is Death By Chocolate cake make by the inventor Marcel Desauliniers. His cake is so lucious. I would get it when I would visit his former restaurant in VA. Oh my. Thanks for the chance to win!
