Please Mocha Me Happy!




We are now well into the third annual Menu for Hope fundraising campaign. As you know, we are raising funds to support the United Nations World Food Programme. Allow me to make a little pitch for my contribution, the Mocha Me Happy! package, code #UW13.

This prize package would make the PERFECT Valentine's Day gift for a coffee and chocolate lover. It is packed with scrumptious premium brands of deliciousness--chocolate bars, French roast coffee, chocolate sauce, cocoa powder, chocolate covered coffee beans, and two wonderful books, total package is worth over $60 retail.

Only two people have bid on this package so your chances of winning it are especially good! It also has a couple of special surprises in it, one of which I will reveal today, Kona Coffee Crunch marshmallows from Plush Puffs Gourmet Marshmallows. I suggest floating them in your hot chocolate, but it's entirely up to you.

* Savor four Scharffenberger mocha chocolate bars
* Drizzle Charlie Trotter Bittersweet Chocolate-Kona Coffee Sauce
* Stir up Schokinag Dutch Process Cocoa Powder (22/24% cocoa butter)
* Sip Dark Roast coffee from Peet's, Douwe Egbert and more
* Nibble Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans
* Read Hot Chocolate from Ten Speed Press
* Bake a cake from Coffee Cakes from Chronicle Books...and a couple of surprises!
