I am a chocolate snob. A big one.

So it comes as no surprise that I absolutely adore Sarris‘ chocolate since it is touted as “the world’s best chocolate.” Honestly – it is! I would know – I’ve done my fair share of chocolate tasting, especially with Sarris since they are right here in Pittsburgh.
Sarris‘ is full of nostalgia for me. With it being right down the road from my grandparents‘ house, we would take a trip to get ice cream and marvel at all of the chocolate creations. It is basically my mecca. My mom would also always buy multiple bags of chocolate covered pretzels to give as hostess gifts or to serve at a party, but I would inevitably discover them and eat them all before she could do so. I also use Sarris‘ in many of my chocolate covered treats, because it truly is one of my favorite chocolates. Right up there with Godiva. In fact, yesterday I melted a few milk chocolate bars [you can find them at Giant Eagle if you’re local] to make more cake batter bark, as well as a recipe you will see later this week. It is to die for.


And I only coat my strawberries with Sarris – nothin’ else!
The kind people at Sarris are giving away free chocolate to one How Sweet It Is reader – in the name of all things chocolate, you must give it a try! I would never lead you astray and would never give you something I didn’t adore. The lucky winner will receive chocolate covered pretzels (the best I’ve ever had) and a deluxe box of chocolate.
I’m throwing in a $25 Williams and Sonoma gift card because I am so appreciative to each and every one of you – without you there wouldn’t be a How Sweet It Is! You guys mean the world to me.
To enter: Simply leave a comment below telling me whatever your little heart desires. Of course, you can always follow along on Twitter and Facebook, but it is not required.

Winner will be chosen late tonight.
Have a fabulous Sunday!

    Once you’ve tasted good chocolate, it’s tough to go back! I’d love to try what you think is the “best” chocolate, since you haven’t led me astray yet! I’ve made several of your recipes and I now feel like a good cook. Amazing!

    Oh Jessica…I wish you didn’t live so far away from me! We could shop at WS and Trader Joe’s together! Seriously- since I moved my best friend and I meet at Whole Foods about once a month to shop together. We used to live next door to each other so we saw each other almost everyday. Now we food shop together whenever one of us has a party or family gathering (which is about monthly). We get to see each other, catch up and we have the best time! :-)

    I have been dying to try the cake batter bake but I don’t feel like I can find nice enough chocolate to use for it – obviously I have only looked at the grocery store :) . And, the gift card would definitely be divine to help buy me a kichenaid mixer. Love your blog!!

    Chocolate that doesn’t make me fat. I want to eat it everyday with no consequences to my waistline. I don’t think that is unreasonable. :-)
