Last night I hit the chocolate motherload, courtesy of my fabulous friends Tom and Heather. Tom's dad is a R&D scientist at Guittard Chocolate (WHAT a dream job, right?), and from time to time he provides them with boxes of high-quality chocolate. Because they know I have a giant sweet tooth, and possibly because I am shameless in my chocolate grovelling, they generously gifted me with a large quantity of delicious Guittard bars. I believe this is what the kids call being "hooked up" these days. I can't wait to play with my new chocolate stash!
Normally I would hoard all of this chocolate and snarl "my precioussss" whenever someone came near it. However, I'm feeling generous today, so I thought I'd offer a little giveaway. Want to win five gourmet chocolate bars? Simply leave a comment to this entry between now and Midnight PST on Thursday, August 28th. The stash is pictured above: there are four single-origin 65% bittersweet bars, and an uber-dark 91% bar. I'll throw in a few minis (milk and dark) too. If you want, you can mention what sorts of recipes you might like to try with the chocolate, but that's not a requirement. I'll use the random number generator to pick a winner on Friday the 29th. Good luck!
