Menu for Hope III: Day Nine/Chocoblockochocolate

Here we are a day before the end of Menu for Hope III--it's been quite amazing witnessing the generosity of both prize donors and financial donors. A quick check of the donations page shows we've raised US$43,096.70. It's not too late to get in on the campaign--donations that are counted towards raffle tickets are accepted until the end of Friday 22 December.

Thanks to the wonderful Kat of kungfoodie for reviewing all of the MFH III prizes and posting about those that are available to be shipped globally. Click here to see that list.

I'm really happy to say that all of our Canadian-sponsored prizes have at least one ticket, but of course, we'd love more ballots. f you want the opportunity for a little bit of Canada to be shipped to you, please visit our regional round-up.You don't have to be Canadian to bid on these--if your name is drawn (and you've let us see your email address), we'll ship these books to you, where-ever you are. As always, you can put your name in for one prize with a US$10 donation.

This is the last of the themed posts for Canadian prizes--the others centred on cookbooks, regional flavours and hand-made goodies.
If you missed them, here are the theme links cookbooks, yummy ways to travel and handmade goodies.

Today: Chocoblockochocolate

I really don't know what more to say about this. We have two very generous prize donors who've come up with some lovely choocolatey goodness.

Curious? Read on....

CA11. Artisanal Goodness

Linda of Kayak Soup applies her considerable creativity to the prize she’s offering. A very lucky winner will receive two dozen hand-made chocolates. Yes, she will give away two dozen of her own chocolates—the flavours included are chai, port, frangelico, dulce de leche, gingerbread, cardamom and rosewater, and Kahlua.. But that’s not all. This choco-luscious prize will arrive in a unique gift box. What’s unique about it? Linda will paint the box in the prize winner’s colours of choice. Yummy and beautiful.
