Sweet Giveaway!

A few weeks ago, the nice folks at See's Candies dropped me an email to ask if I would be interested to create a dessert with their candies/chocolate. Not only are they sending me the goodies, they also agreed to give one of my readers a $25 gift voucher! Aren't they sweet?

see's candies


As you can see, I got some chocolate from their Easter Candy selection and will be making something with my friends at a party later. My initial plan was to post a dessert with this giveaway post, but it was a hectic exam week, so that didn't materialise. Also, I am hoping that the winner of the $25 gift voucher can have enough time to select candies from their Easter Candy selection. So this giveaway post has to come before I show you what I make with them.

I am sure you don't mind that. Do you? To stand a chance to win $25 See Candies gift voucher, simply leave me a comment! The closing date is Tuesday 12:00a.m central time. A lucky winner will be chosen at random and announced on Tuesday morning. Good luck everyone!

I love sees, it's a horrible thing that we don't have them in Texas. I end up filling my suitcase with a couple of the variety boxes every time I visit California.

How fun! Any chocolate is great ;-)

See's was one of the highlights of the years I lived in California. I wish they'd expand their stores to the coast I live on now.
