Order Raw Chocolate Caramel Pecan Turtles... and a Giveaway!


It's no secret that I love chocolate. I love eating it, dreaming up new recipes, making it, and sharing it. This summer I sold my raw chocolates and desserts at the local farmers market. It was so much fun that I'm continuing the sweet goodness by selling a few of my most popular items throughout the Christmas holidays. I've decided to make some of these goodies available to anyone in North America during the holiday season.


From now until Christmas enjoy my raw chocolates...

Cinnamon Cashew Caramel Turtles
Cashews in cinnamon caramel, wrapped in rich dark chocolate 

Chocolate Truffles 
Flavors: dark chocolate, mint, coconut, hazelnut, banana, cinnamon spice, and orange

Caramel Pecan Turtles
Pecans and caramel wrapped in rich dark chocolate 

Get your turtles in red and green packages for Christmas, or my regular colors, pink and purple. Choose from white or gold boxes with ribbons or my bright pink boxes for your truffles.


To place an order, contact me via email for full details: heather @ sweetlyraw.com.

To kick things off, I thought it would be fun to do a chocolate giveaway. I've had a few giveaways before and they're always so much fun (choccie turtles in the easter egg box was pretty cute). I love reading people's answers.

The Giveaway:
1 pink box of truffles in assorted flavors and 6 caramel pecan turtles.


To enter:
Answer the question below and leave your email address. The cut off is midnight on Friday November 5. A random number generator will select the winner and then I will contact the winner, get your address and send your goodies! The winner will have 24 hours to reply to me or I will use the generator to choose another winner.

What is your favorite flavor with chocolate?

For me it's really hard to choose because it all depends what I'm eating in the moment, lol. My top are probably caramel, banana, coconut, and mint (I can't resist a chocolate covered banana or a chocolate mint truffle!).

Tis the season to eat or give some raw chocolate! 
Contact me - heather @ sweetlyraw.com to order or inquire.

I am crazy for chipotle and chocolate. But for the holidays, I like chocolate with mint, hazelnut, or orange.

Caroline said...

Caramel and nut for sure!

Kaye said...

Caramel & Pecan. I know Pecan isn't necessarily a flavor...but I rarely eat chocolate without pecans or walnuts :) They just go together! Mint is a close second.

Those chocolates look GORGEOUS! And I love your packaging. My favorite flavor with chocolate is chocolate. What? You mean there's something else besides chocolate? Well, OK, if pressed, I'd say orange with chocolate is my favorite :).

Rande said...

Your pictures have me drooling! I love just plain chocolate, the darker the better!

Mint is always one of my faves, along with hazelnuts or caramel, but cayenne and cinnamon together is also up there or really really love chocolates with medicinal mushrooms and when it comes to fruit cherries or blueberries.

Robb & Nancy said...

It's hard to pick one favorite to go with chocolate, but I definitely love coffee, mint, caramel and peanut butter (the order depends on the day!)

Kat said...

so hard to choose - lately I've been loving sea salt and caramalized cacao nibs! spicy is always good too. email katmotl@yahoo.com

Kimbers said...

Hard to choose because I love chocolate. Probably would be cinnamon with dark chocolate. Followed by mind and chocolate. Of course sea salt is nice with chocolate.... yeah - okay - I like them ALL! :)
kimbermata@hotmail.com

Kimbers said...

Whoops - that was supposed to be MINT and chocolate - I haven't had "mind" and chocolate together yet! LOL!!

Frannie said...

Sweet post. I am on chocolate sabbatical until the Christmas Holiday. I love, love chocolate and need to keep my distance for a while.

I love dark chocolate on fresh bing cherries. Yum!

The Conscious Cook said...

Yum! I may have to keep them in mind as I've been dying to try your chocolates. I really adore mint chocolate during the holidays. I just made a batch of raw chocolate that taste like a better dark version of meltaways. It would have been perfect with some mint. I also am a sucker with chocolate that has a touch of salt, especially with almonds or goji berries.

Jade said...

My absolute favorite is chocolate and hazelnut...or chocolate and lavender--but one has to be careful when adding the lavendar. Too much and it tastes like soap!

snhks said...

Definitely with COCONUTS! Next would be hazelnuts or cherries! YUM!

Jenn said...

Peanut butter and chocolate!!!!!

Christina Blue said...

I love the taste of peanut or almond butter and chocolate! Mint is also a favorite of mine. Caramel is way up there, too, but hardly found as I am a vegan. :/

Mel said...

As a rule I can't resist a gooey/liquidy centre of any flavour especially when it's a suprise. However as it's bonfire night (guy fawkes night) on fifth of november I'm craving bonfire toffee flavour reminisent of my childhood so really molasses, treacley butterscotch taste.

dehydrated mango and goji berries or peanuts and cherries for sure!

If only you'd ship to Australia!

avoir_la_volonte said...

OOOoooh...this is a great contest. But the question...now that is a hard one. I can't decide: coconut, caramel, mint, peanut, hazelnut...really, you just can't go wrong with chocolate (unless you pair it with salmon or anchovies or something equally gross). : )

So much that when i got my tonsels out, for two weeks, every meal & snack & food i ate was mint chip ice cream.. thank god i was a growing kid.

It might sound gross, but Vogue's Black Pearl Bar is so good. Ginger + Wasabi + Black Sesame Seeds + 55% dark chocolate = Amazing!
