Free Raw Chocolate Giveaway!

Today I've got a few treats to share - to give away actually! ... as you know, I'm a serious dessert lover - even more passionate about chocolate. I make a lot of chocolate - truffles, bars, clusters, and turtles. You may remember that I made choccies for Christmas gifts. Here's a little review...
Chocolate Caramel Nut Crunch Squares

Inside Peek

Fruit & Nut Clusters

Truffles: Coconut, Butter Toffee, Dark Chocolate Orange, Cinnamon Spice, Canadian Maple, Cardamom
More Truffles!
My favourite creation is the Chocolate Turtle, based on the original pecan/caramel/chocolate covered creation that pretty much everyone is familiar with.
I've been making these gems for a long time, but they made a special appearance at a David Wolfe event last September in Calgary. I made 400 turtles and they disappeared in minutes!
I brought some of my chocolate to the gang in NYC a few weeks ago. Check out the video below:
Freshly dipped turtles... Mmm!

As the title of today's post says, I've decided to do a:

Free Chocolate Turtles & Just Desserts Recipe Book Giveaway!
That's right, a home-made box of my chocolate turtles and one of my Just Desserts Recipe books. I'm still in the US, so it's easy for me to send within the country rather cheaply (as opposed to from Canada) - and Easter is comin up, so I thought it would be fun (I found the cutest easter box the other day to send them).
To Enter:
All you need to do is answer the 2 Questions below (I look forward to hearing from you).
It'll be a random draw, and the cut off is Sunday March 7 at midnight.
I'll then email you (make sure I have access to your email addy) to get your home address and your goodies will be on their way.
I will require your mailing addy by the next day, Monday March 8, otherwise I'll pick another name (I figure this is reasonable since most people are on the computer daily).
If you already have my book, you can pass it to a friend by sending their addy and I'll email them a copy!
Questions:

1. What was your favourite childhood chocolate/candy treat?
2. What is your favourite chocolate treat these days?

I'll go first and show you how its done...

My Answers:

1. Smarties & Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
2. Chocolate TURTLES!

** Feel free to post this on Facebook, Twitter, or your own Blog. I will be hosting more giveaways in the future, and just love spreading the choccie vibes.
Hurray for chocolate! Have a beautiful day!

    My favorite treat as a child was most definitely twix bars! Nowadays, my palate would much prefer a One Lucky Duck raw mallomar, chocolate caramel bar, or lemon bar! Mmmm.

    Yum yum, those chocolates look divine. What a great giveaway, Heathy!<br />Here are my answers:<br />1. Coffee Crisp (I always tried to eat it in "layers" and made an awful mess of it, but it was so good)!<br />2. Camino's coconut chocolate bar (it's just dark chocolate with shredded coconut; my tastes have obviously evolved!)

    Yay! for chocolate! <br /><br />1-As a kid, I LOVED anything peanut butter + chocolate. My mother use to make peanut butter balls coated in chocolate!<br /><br /><br />2-That combo has stuck, and still to this day, i adore anything peanut butter and chocolate. Luckily there are better sources for high quality peanut products!

    1. As a kid I couldn't get enough Snickers or Reeses peanut butter cups. <br /><br />2. Since becoming raw I've yet to try anyone else's raw treats other than Rawsome's bars but those aren't exactly.... candy-like. For the past couple months I've just been making a fudgy sauce and spreading it on oranges. Reminds me of those orange flavored chocolate oranges I put in the boys stockings at Christmas.

    Jersey Caramels!! I think they're only available in NZ & OZ mmmm sickly sweet caramel http://www.remarkablesweetshop.co.nz/catalog/P8894_Jersey-Caramels.html<br />Nowadays it'd have to be red licorice with choc filling, I've recreated these by making choc rolled up inside berry leather :)<br />I'm in NZ so if by chance my name is picked out of the hat you could give the choccies to someone deserving but I would love your book emailed :)

But I don't remember the brand! I found them again in Orange County, CA health food store (Mother's Market and Kitchen). If you know what I am talking about let me know! I need my fix!

    Yum! Those look divine.<br /><br />1) It would most likely be a tie with Twix bars and Turtles (anything caramel really)<br /><br />2) I am pretty picky about chocolate these days and it has to be a high quality dark chocolate. If caramel is involved, all the better!<br /><br />I've been attempting to make some raw chocolates at home. Do you make your own or do you melt already made raw chocolate bars for your treats? I can't get mine to be hard enough.

    Wow! Heather, I had no idea you made choccies for David Wolfe! Awesome. Well, here is my little story: <br /><br />I was so infatuated with candy, chocolate, et al, that my darling aunt used to tell me my favorite bed-time story 'The Land of Candy' whenever she would 'baby-sit' me. The 'land' was made entirely out of candy! I remember the clouds were cotton candy, and the swimming pool was filled with liquid chocolate. Hahah anyways ;-)<br /><br />My favorite chocolate as a child was:<br /><br />1. Walnut Whips (back then, they were a special treat from relatives in England).<br />2. anything chocolate that has been made with RAW CACAO! I've been converted, never going back to SAD chocolate, evah :-) I especially dig chocolate truffles.

    A fave of mine as a kid, which they no longer make, were Marathon Bars (you're probably too young to remember these). It was a caramel braid covered in milk chocolate.

    Well I already have the E-Book, but I can't resist chocolate, so I have to answer lol.<br /><br />I can combine this into one because my favourite chocolate treat remains the same, except now it's a Raw Version.<br /><br />My favourite raw treat was and will always be, licking out the bowl and spoon and eating the gooey chocolate batter mixture. <br /><br />Now, I sometimes make Raw Chocolate Cake Batter just to eat it how it is!

    When I was a kid loved raspberry zingers- they are a processed pastry/cake filled with cream covered in a raspberry coat and sprinkled with sweet coconut flakes... alas full of hydrogenated fats, artificial colors, preservatives.<br /><br />Now, one of my favorite treats is a modified version of Sweet Gratitude's fudge recipe. Cut up into small squares I pop them on banana ice cream sundays or alone with a few nuts. Yummmm!

    Hi Heathy!<br /><br />1. Childhood favourite - has to be Thornton's Viennese truffles (not sure if you can get Thornton's chocs in Canada or US). <br /><br />2. I've only recently starting experimenting with raw chocolate goodies. I made my first raw chocolate a couple of weeks ago and couldn't believe how easy and how GOOD it was. So my answer is pure, unadulterated, raw chocolate!! I would love your ebook to help me into the world of raw desserts and convert my friends over here in England.<br /><br />My hubby and I are going to NYC in August (my first time - yay!) and I can't wait to find some new sweety favourites at One Lucky Duck.

    Oooh, this would be such a treat. <br /><br />Then: Hard to pick, but probably KitKat - I wasn't too discriminating and would often choose a wagon wheel (probably giving away my age here) because they were 5 cents instead of 10 cents.<br /><br />Now: My current favorite is the recipe I recently created for Raw Fudgy Chocolate Fruit and Nut Macaroons - every time I pass the freezer I sneek one.<br /><br />I just made a post on my blog to advertise your giveaway even though it will decrease my slim chances of winning this coveted prize :)<br /><br /><a href="http://www.creativelifeskills.blogspot.com/" rel="nofollow">www.creativelifeskills.blogspot.com</a>

    Childhood was Cadbury's Cream Egg! Not enough choc of course but the combo of choc and all that colored sugar - had me zinging for hours!<br />These days I love to make my own truffles but if I buy something its usually Righteously Raw bars or Ulimana truffles. I am also known for eating cacao paste chunks straight up. (Do you think I have a problem...??!!)

    I LOVED fruity Starburst chews as a kid (and actually wasn't a huge fan of chocolate...gasp! My mother always marveled at how I was the only kid to turn down candy bars like Snickers, etc.) I think my lack of love for chocolate had something to do with a lack of exposure to GOOD chocolate (all I knew of back then was Hershey's). <br /><br />Nowadays I now LOVE organic Dark chocolate...the darker the better (like 85%)!! Which is why my favorite dessert is raw chocolate because I can control the quality (and quantity) of cocoa and all the other ingredients in order to make the PERFECT (and Healthiest) sweet treat!!<br /><br />Great post btw!

Now-a-days my favorites are coconut peppermint patty, chocolate almonds, coconut fudge, avocado mousse, and my own concoction of almond butter+coconut butter+carob+a little bit of stevia, all raw of course :-), YUMMY!!!

    mine were coconut mushrooms, chocolate covered raisins, or chocolate buttons. And it's still the same now! Which iswhy I'd love to win a copy of your book, I could use the dark chocolate recipe to help me rawify them! =)

    Okay, I know how to make chocolate, but I'd much rather have them arrive at my door, especially if it is from you :-)<br /><br />As a child I loved just about every candy, so it is hard to pick just one. Sometimes I had to be enticed by the packaging or some gimmick. With that in mind, I guess I'd pick candy jewelry, because I felt pretty wearing it.<br /><br />When it came to chocolate, I could eat it all, too, but I really have a special memory of Junior Mints. My Nanny, who is no longer around, used to give them to me.<br /><br />I enjoy raw chocolate like your truffles, but lately, I've been making less sweet puddings. I try to make non chocolate varieties every once and a while. They just aren't the same as the chocolate ones.

    My absolute favorite chocolate childhood treat was Rocky Road ice cream. It was my father's favorite and he would take me for ice cream cones once a month. It was by far some of my best childhood memories!<br />To this day I have tried to make raw versions of rocky road ice cream as well as raw ice cream cones without luck. Something is missing with the marshmallows.

    When I was a child my favorite treat was the Rice Dream Mint Pie, I wasn't allowed to eat much sugar so these were an extra special treat. <br /><br />Right now I'm really into cacao nibs, I crave chocolate like crazy but need to be careful about eating too much sugar, so these satisfy my craving perfectly. Plus I love the consistency and crunch!

    Hi Heathy!<br /><br />My favorite candy as a child was those candied orange slices! My dad used to buy them at Sears (they were his fav). I remember they were covered with sugar!

    Oh my goodness...I would LOVE to be entered into this drawing...<br /><br />I've been really fighting with eating better and my normal downfall is due to my sweettooth! Juicing/Smoothies...no problem...sweet tooth is horrible though despite adding so many greens! I'm just naturally sweet I guess! ;) But on a serious note, most of my extended family is morbidly obese and I am terrified for not just my own life, but my childrens. Our food habits tend to lead to a path I don't want to continue following...I've seen the end result. I want to be able to enjoy my life with my children, not sit and watch while I catch my breath...or worse...<br /><br />I'd really love the chance to learn how to eat sweets that are better for my body..so to answer your questions:<br /><br />1. Snickers...loved loved loved them as a child...<br /><br />2. Nowadays...I'd have to say literally any chocolate/caramel combination! I have stayed pretty true to my love of sweets! ;)<br /><br />Thank you for this opportunity to learn more about how to feed my family and sweet addiction naturally! <br /><br />Have a beautiful day!<br /><br />Jes

    As a kid I think my favorite chocolate was snickers and my favorite candy was anything gummy. Nowadays my favorite is chocolate covered sweet & sara marshmallows that I made. I try to restrain myself though as they are still fairly processed. Great giveaway.

    My grandmother would make peanut butter covered chocolate treats called 'buckeyes.' Those were always my favorite and I have found memories of receiving them for every year during Christmas.<br /><br />Now a days, some type of superfood, with nuts and coconut turtle or truffle would have to be my favorite. Something that isn't just a treat but could more of a meal.

    Hmmmm... narrowing this down to 1 alltime favorite childhood treat is tough to do. I guess if I had to, I'd choose...Baby Ruth. But, i had a very odd way of eating it. I loved the Nougat/Caramel center and I never wanted to ruin it, so I'd eat the chocolate and peanuts off first. then, i'd enjoy the gooey center! My favorite treat now is a raw chocolate with a "caramel" center. I make my own, but I just ordered one from Caracao Confections and it was divine! Yum!!!
