Order Raw Chocolate Caramel Pecan Turtles… and a Giveaway!

It's no secret that I love chocolate. I love eating it, dreaming up new recipes, making it, and sharing it. This summer I sold my raw chocolates and desserts at the local farmers market. It was so much fun that I'm continuing the sweet goodness by selling a few of my most popular items throughout the Christmas holidays. I've decided to make some of these goodies available to anyone in North America during the holiday season.

From now until Christmas enjoy my raw chocolates...

Cinnamon Cashew Caramel Turtles
Cashews in cinnamon caramel, wrapped in rich dark chocolate 

Chocolate Truffles 
Flavors: dark chocolate, mint, coconut, hazelnut, banana, cinnamon spice, and orange

Caramel Pecan Turtles
Pecans and caramel wrapped in rich dark chocolate 

Get your turtles in red and green packages for Christmas, or my regular colors, pink and purple. Choose from white or gold boxes with ribbons or my bright pink boxes for your truffles.


To place an order, contact me via email for full details: heather @ sweetlyraw.com.

To kick things off, I thought it would be fun to do a chocolate giveaway. I've had a few giveaways before and they're always so much fun (choccie turtles in the easter egg box was pretty cute). I love reading people's answers.

The Giveaway:
1 pink box of truffles in assorted flavors and 6 caramel pecan turtles.


To enter:
Answer the question below and leave your email address. The cut off is midnight on Friday November 5. A random number generator will select the winner and then I will contact the winner, get your address and send your goodies! The winner will have 24 hours to reply to me or I will use the generator to choose another winner.

What is your favorite flavor with chocolate?

For me it's really hard to choose because it all depends what I'm eating in the moment, lol. My top are probably caramel, banana, coconut, and mint (I can't resist a chocolate covered banana or a chocolate mint truffle!).

Tis the season to eat or give some raw chocolate! 
Contact me - heather @ sweetlyraw.com to order or inquire.

    Yum! I may have to keep them in mind as I've been dying to try your chocolates. I really adore mint chocolate during the holidays. I just made a batch of raw chocolate that taste like a better dark version of meltaways. It would have been perfect with some mint. I also am a sucker with chocolate that has a touch of salt, especially with almonds or goji berries.
