Brownie lovers unite!! Have I got a treat for you... or I could if you're willing to try your luck at a little game of chance.
I'm working together with Joel of Lovepuppies Brownies to offer you a chance to win a box of the most unbelievably delicious brownies you may ever taste. That's a pretty serious claim I just made, but I'm willing to go to the mat for it. Joel makes four flavors. Four incredible flavors. Although I find it impossible to choose a favorite, I will say you've not lived until you've had the Peanut Butter Nutcase brownies. Allergic to nuts (because I can't think of another reason in the world why you wouldn't want the peanut butter ones)? Try your hand at the You Mocha Me Crazy. Or how about Make Mine a Double Chocolate? Looking for some spice in your life? There's always Hunka Hunka Burning Love. Starts sweet, finishes with a bang. SO good! So are you up for the challenge?
Here's the deal... Joel is offering to donate a box a dozen of his beyond fabulous, ooey-gooey and uber-decadent brownies (three each of every flavor) in an effort to help me help Pim raise money for a school lunch program in Lesotho. This is the fifth year Pim has done this and last year she raised almost 100K (as in 100k!!!!). I'm also tossing in some of my Gibassier-inspired biscotti, in case you need to cut the chocolate (as if!!).
So how does it work? It's called Menu for Hope. It's a raffle where you can win some of the most fantastic prizes. It only costs $10 for a raffle ticket and prize list will boggle your mind. Check out the entire prize list here. There's also regional lists and this is my region.
Super fantastic - right??? Now that you know what you want to throw your money down for but how? For the love of brownies how???
Okay, calm down... here's what you do:

2. Each $10 you donate will give you one raffle ticket toward a prize of your choice. Please specify which prize you'd like in the 'Personal Message' section in the donation form when confirming your donation. You must write-in how many tickets per prize, and please use the prize code.
For example, a donation of $50 can be 2 tickets for EU01 and 3 tickets for EU02. Please write 2xEU01, 3xEU02
The prize code for the brownies is UE34.

In case you don't win (I'm crossing my fingers very hard for you) you can always get the brownies from Joel himself. He DELIVERS. Yeah, Austin, you read that right, you can get these bad boys delivered, as in to your home, to your job... Wherever. You won't regret a single bite. So what do you say? Is the school lunch program worth it? Yes. Are the brownies (and biscotti from me!) worth it? Hells yes. The code is UE34.
I'll be back with more food in a few days. Promise!!
