Easy Chocolate Dip for Valentine’s Day + Brookside Chocolate Giveaway!

IMG_0170 The Day of LOVE is almost here! I’m assuming my husband will forget and I’ll end up eating the chocolate I bought for him. Haha. Reese’s peanut butter heart {the size of my face} here I come!

I’m only half kidding about my husband forgetting, by the way. I’ll probably get flowers…..on the 15th.

Again, just kidding! {I hope}

Anyways, here’s an awesome and fast recipe that is perfect for Valentine’s Day! Chocolate Dip, ya’ll! Easier than fondue and just as tasty! Anything tastes good dipped in chocolate :) This dip with fresh strawberries were my favorite, but bananas and rice krispie treats were a close second for sure. You only need 6 ingredients for this and maybe 20 minutes to throw it all together. Win win!

This is a recipe from Better Homes and Gardens that I wrote for their blog, Delish Dish. You can read my blog post, see more photos {step-by-steps included} and print the recipe HERE. Make sure to come say hi! I get lonely…..well virtually speaking.

Yes, that’s possible.

Oh you guys.

collage Since Valentine’s Day is seriously right around the corner, I thought of nothing more fitting that a chocolate giveaway!! Brookside Chocolate is going to hook one lucky winner with the following:

Screen Shot 2013-02-10 at 10.23.20 PM

-Three bags of their amazing Chocolate {Dark Chocolate with Acai & Blueberry, Dark Chocolate pomegranate, & Dark Chocolate with Goji and Raspberry}
-Crate & Barrel Cheese board
-Dual Giam Yoga headband.
-Cheese spatula (from Crate & Barel)
-Two stemless wine glasses from Carate & Barrel.
-One year free subscription to fitness magazine
-Crate & Barrel trio server
-A $30 AMEX gift card to buy something to use those brand new dishes for some easy entertaining.

Pretty rad, yes? I thought so. Brookside Chocolate sent me all this stuff to enjoy and boy did these chocolate go FAST! The Pomegranate flavor was my favorite, but my husband loved the Goji and Raspberry. My daughter loved all three. No surprise there. Ha!

Rules: Contest will open once I hit publish on this blessed post and will close February 14th at 11:59 pm. Winner will be selected at random and contacted by email. Winner will have 48 hours to respond before another winner is chosen. Contest open to legal US residents only.

Disclaimer: I was not paid to write this post or say nice things about my friends over at Brookside Chocolates. I just genuinely love these chocolates and wanted to share the good news with my readers. I received the same prize pack the winner will receive as listed above.

Good Luck :)

    Yum…what a beautiful chocolate dip to celebrate the V-day. hehe…no, I think my hubby is the one who will probably forget about this day. :P You’re so right, everything tastes better when dipped in chocolate. :) What a great idea to enjoy more fruit…and chocolate. Thanks for hosting the giveaway. I’m a big fan of Brookside Chocolates. I love the Dark Chocolate with Acai & Blueberry and Dark Chocolate pomegranate. Haven’t try the Goji berry ones yet and I can’t wait.

    I am a subscriber! Chocolate covered strawberries are to die for. I really would love to try the Brookside chocolates, they sound so yummy. My hub and I both cook, so for Valentines Day we are going for a nice dinner at the Lakeview. It will be a treat for both of us not to have to cook. I would love if he went to Jared Jewelers, instead, but I know that won’t happen! After all, diamond’s are forever!
