Giveaway Day!

***This giveaway is now closed***

It's my first official giveaway, and a sweet one it is!

My friend Kim Sprague is a Dove Chocolate Discoveries Chocolatier. She offers Chocolate Tasting parties where she teaches fun entertaining ideas and you get to sample all her yummy treats! She has a team of consultants around the US, so if you are interested in hosting a party, you can contact Kim.  Also, check out her blog for some creative chocolate ideas...  

Today Kim is offering a very special Truffle Collection that will be shipped the week of Mother's Day. 

The truffles are going to be handmade by Jin Caldwell, recognized as one of the Top 10 Pastry Chefs in North America. They will be made with fresh creams and butter, and are best enjoyed within 3 weeks of delivery (as if they would have a chance of lasting longer.) 

These are not stale chocolates that you find on a shelf in a store!  

The retail value of this prize is $39.

Here are the rules.....

1. Become a follower of my blog.

2. Leave me a comment letting me know about the special lady that will receive these yummy truffles (even if that special lady is you!).

3. One post per person, per household 

4. Dove chocolatiers or Dove/Mars, Inc. employees are not allowed to play 

5. Winner must live in the continental USA

6. Posts must be submitted by 11:59pm, PST, Thursday, April 22, 2010.

7. Winner will be randomly selected and posted on Friday, April 23, 2011.

8. Winner must send me the mailing address that they would like the truffles shipped to (no PO Boxes) by Saturday, April 24, 2011, 5pm PST, or a new winner will be selected. 


  1. My mom is diabetic, so she wouldn't really appreciate a box of chocolates she's not supposed to eat. I do have a wonderful, childless friend who always feels left out on Mother's Day, though. I think she would appreciate a little truffle love during the week of May 9th.

  2. Hey Emmy,

    I forgot to tell you the dessert truffle flavors (24 truffles, 4 of each flavor)

    Creme Brulee
    Key Lime Pie
    Raspberry Parfait
    Chocolate Mousse
    Strawberry Cheesecake
    Lemon Meringue

    Good luck!

  3. HI Emmy! My mom, the most generous, thoughtful, selfless person I know... would love these delicious chocolates! If she had it her way, we'd all eat chocolate for breakfast every day! :-) Love your blog! XO, Cami Stigall

  4. I'm following, I'd keep these bad boys, and The Chocolate Lady sent me! :)

  5. I'm following! I would keep these for myself since this Mother's day is my first!!

  6. the special lady is me though if my girls find them I will be lucky to eat one, I better hide them
    (Follow blog)

  7. I am a new follower.

    I would keep these to share with my sisters (who are mothers). I am the "favorite" aunt.

  8. I'm a follower.. and I'd take these chocolates with me to a "girl's getaway" with a couple fellow mom's to be enjoyed with a bottle of champagne

  9. For suresy they would go to my Mama! xoxo

  10. These would be all mine, baby!

  11. My 87 year old mother-in-law is a wonder. Would like these. The Chocolate Lady sent me over. Yayyy.

    Follow, follow . . .

  12. Kim sent me and now I'm following and can't believe how some of us (you) are SO creative the jealousy hurts (me)!

    I would absolutely have my mom receive these. She lives in NJ and I am in NC and she's amazing. I don't see her but once a year and I would sacrifice the chocolates because she absolutely deserves this and SO much more.

  13. I follow your blog! And I love chocolate. And I'll share. Maybe. :-)

  14. Hi, The Chocolate Woman sent me, and I am adding myself as a follower. I would love it if my sister, an amazing mother of four, won this. Looks yummy!

  15. I just learned about dove chocolate discoveries and I would love to get these for myself and kids. As my bday is may 12th and we always make a family treat together! This could be it! Glad to be following!

  16. I would give them to my mom. She's been in the hospital with my sick dad for a week and chocolate would definitely pep up her spirits! Thanks for the fun giveaway!

  17. I am receiving these chocolate for myself. I love chocolate.

  18. I was going to submit my mom because she's had a hella year - Dad passed away after being sick with cancer for 2 years and in the aftermath of his death, our family (6 adult siblings & their families) has imploded with lots of anger and blaming. My mom probably wouldn't eat the delectable truffles as her taste is pretty much stuck on a name brand of milk chocolate made in a northeastern state (hint, hint) so I'm voting for Cortney's mom to get them.

  19. Those chocolates have my name written all over them. I can see it all the way from over here. :)

    Thank you for the chance to win them!

  20. I would say my mom because she is the BEST! But she is diabetic and it would not be very nice or healthy of me to give her the box of I guess it has to come to me! Darn it! Hey it would be a great surprise to celebrate my second mother's day. (especially since the first one I can't remember because I was so sleep deprived). Thanks for the chance.
