Giveaway! Season’s Greetings Ghirardelli-Style

Ghirardelli Limited Edition Prize

The tree is up at Rockefeller Center, a certain coffee chain’s red cups are in everyone’s chilly hands and Ghirardelli’s Limited Edition Peppermint Bark has hit shelves — Christmas season is officially here!  I come from a family of chocolate lovers — my aunt and uncle own a restaurant in Michigan called the Chocolate Gallery Cafe {they often bake their award-winning desserts with Ghirardelli chocolate}, my sister-in-law works for Ghirardelli and my mom, well, she just loves to fill the candy bowls with it. One of the favorite flavors in our family is the Peppermint Bark — with a creamy milk chocolate bottom layer topped in white chocolate and flakes of crunchy peppermint, it’s chocolate that tastes like Christmas! But this treat is only available in November and December and I’m in the sharing spirit, so I’m giving one lucky winner a hefty supply of Limited Edition Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark! Use it as a gift this holiday season or keep it for yourself {it’s ok!}, but either way, enjoy the 8.ate@eight Ghirardelli holiday love.
