My special event is finally here! From now until October 20, the format on my daily recipe page and blog (Seasonal and Holiday Recipe Exchange) will be a little different, since I am joining forces with over 100 other bloggers from around the world to post delicious chocolate recipes for Autumn and Halloween. Every day, #Choctoberfest bloggers will be celebrating all things chocolate - milk, dark, white, bittersweet, semi-sweet, and cocoa!
I am being sponsored by IMPERIAL SUGAR, and also SPRINKLE POP and will personally post at least 3 chocolate recipes each day featuring my sponsors, and some unsponsored chocolate recipes too. I’ve also opened a new #CHOCTOBERFEST Pinterest Board and am a member of the group #CHOCTOBERFEST Pinterest Board, so you’ll be able to find a chocolate recipe to find anything that your heart desires! ** I will be posting a chocolate recipe each day for each of my sponsors, plus a 3rd recipe (either for a sponsor, or non-sponsored recipe), so please come back to my blog or daily recipe page to check them out! ** I will also have button links to Imperial Sugar or Sprinkle Pop on the recipe which features their product ~ and a button link to the #Choctoberfest pinterest board.
