Weekly Mix: Chocolate!

Happy Friday, my baking friends! I hope you’ve all had a great week. I spent the week visiting family and friends in Mississippi and celebrating an early Christmas. I am happy to be back home now and am ready to get back into the kitchen!

I’m also hoping you’ve enjoyed my little Cookie Week on BoB this week. If you missed anything, here’s a little recap:

If you’re looking for more cookie ideas, just peruse the Recipe Index.

There are plenty more good things to come for the holidays, so keep checking back here or follow me by RSS, email, Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest.

Now, let’s talk about one of my very favorite baking ingredients… chocolate! I tend to be a little picky about my chocolate, and I always try to use the best I can, especially in desserts where chocolate is the star.

One of my favorite brands is Scharffen Berger. I especially love their cocoa powder. For those of you in the New York area, Scharffen Berger is hosting a Chocolate Holiday Event on Thursday, December 13, 2012, at Chelsea Triangle at 14th St and 9th Avenue. They are serving up hot cocoa, offering samples, and much more. All for free! They’ll be there until 7pm, so get there if you can. I’m certainly planning on it!

If you aren’t able to get there, Scharffen Berger has a treat for a Bake or Break reader. They are going to send one of you a generous sampling of some of their best products. Here’s what you’ll get:

  • Unsweetened Natural Cocoa Powder
  • Scharffen Berger Baking Bar
  • Scharffen Berger Chocolate Chunks
  • 12-piece Folio Box of Tasting Squares

Here are a few details about entering:

Good luck! And happy baking!
