Chocolate, Giveaway Winner, and Another Giveaway!

And the Winner is...And Another Giveaway!

(And Chocolate.)

I know who won the giveaway!

But first let's talk about chocolate.

So, technically it's Valentine's Day and I've got all my baking done.

Yes, I baked. A lot.

And I had classroom Valentines to write out for my preschooler along with teacher treats. Because, yes, I'm that mom. I also blogged a love letter to my super special baby boy, Christian. If you wanna read it, visit his blog!

I baked for my oldest son for Valentine's Day. He loves this recipe I found on Pinterest called Slutty Brownies. He's a teenager, but don't get the wrong idea. He even asked for this instead of a cake for his birthday last year.

Take a look at this creation.

This dessert goes by a couple different names. I've heard it referred to as OMG Brownies and Slutty Brownies. But I preferred the name Slutty Brownies because I'm classy like that. And also because they are just so bad but so good!

Anyway, I'll be doing a whole post in the future about these brownie bars. They are so easy to make and they always impress. It's almost like cheating. Long story short it's brownie on top of Oreo Cookie on top of chocolate chip cookie.

I also made these homemade chocolate peanut butter cup candies for the husband.

When I read the recipe I was like no way could these be this easy.

But they were. Like, stupid - easy. Like, they are trying to trick me with their chocolate witch craft - easy.

By the way, the recipe doesn't call for an elf hat of peanut butter filling on top. But the husband wanted more peanut butter so I had to oblige.

Oh, and, don't worry! Amongst all this baking I did not forget....

The winner to my very first giveaway has been randomly chosen!

First, I'd like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who participated. This was so much fun to do and I can't believe all the blog love and support I've received through this giveaway. Second, I'd like to thank Lisa at Whole Soul Jewelry for taking the plunge with me. You rock, girl!

So the winner...

Dana Alison!

I'll be contacting you soon, Dana! Congratulations and Happy Valentine's Day!

During this giveaway I surpassed my goals and hit 100 GFC followers! Yay!

So what's a girl to do to celebrate?
