Ghirardelli Chocolate Contest goes on without Spicy Pecan

It's with great sadness that I announce that my flavor creation in the Ghirardelli Bring Your Light to Dark contest was eliminated.   I had a remarkable experience and am still overwhelmed by the support I received these past weeks.   Today the big consensus is that I should produce my chocolate anyway.   Although I could never compete with Ghirardelli in mass producing my flavor, I can make it for Holiday's and as Real Estate gifts.   So off I go mold shopping! 

If you'd like to try Spicy Pecan drop me a comment with your address, become a blog follower and I will send you some.  It is very, very good!

So when God closes a door, another one opens... my eyes are wide open to see what occurs next!!!   Woohoo!

You are right about one door closing, and another opens. You might be starting your own cottage industry in chocolate.

Pls. send me an e-mail, and I'll e-mail my address to you, so you can send the chocolate.

I am so, so sorry that you didn't win. I think your flavor sounds amazing and if I liked chocolate, I'd try it out! I am making your banana bread for the family right now though. :)

What a great opportunity, Stacey! I think the chocolate will make terrific gifts. We're always looking for original gifts so maybe when cold weather hits and it's ok to ship from TX to IN we can order some from you. congratulations on making it as far as you did!!!! Kate
