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!

    Oh man, I LOVE Williams-Sonoma!! I pretty much want the whole store but the first things that come to mind are the Zoku quick pop maker and Breville pie maker. So much fun!! I’ve never had Sarris chocolate, no stores were I live.
    I’m making your Hoho cake Christmas Eve. It’s tradition in our family to make a cake and then sing Happy Birthday to Jesus. May sound corny but the kids love it!

    I’m looking to make the Cake Batter Bark this weekend. I showed my fiance and he’s looking forward to it, even thought he didn’t know what Bark was!

    I’d love to have that GC to William’s and Sonoma as I’m in love with that store.
