It’s Raining Chocolate Chips {& Bunnies & Giveaways}

When Enjoy Life sent me a box of non-dairy chocolatey goodies to sample a few weeks ago, I had no choice but to make some form of candy with it, right? RIGHT?!  It’s not like I am a stranger to this brand–in fact, it is my top pick when choosing chocolate to work with. I cannot taste the difference between them and your typical full of dairy chocolate. So when that bag of Mega Chunks chocolate chips stared at me in the eye from the box, I immediately ordered a 3D bunny mold and knew that a chocolate bunny was begging to be made. {Bow tie and sugary eyes, not included}.

Isn’t he so adorable that you could just gooble him right up? {Be careful, however! I nearly broke my tooth while trying to take a bite out of his ear}. You better believe that this bunny used an ENTIRE  bag of chocolate chips.  Can you imagine devouring this little guy? It would probably take me a year to finish. That is a lot of chocolate!

In the spirit of Easter, I’m playing Easter Bunny and am giving 2 lucky winners a free bag of Enjoy Life chocolate chips in their Easter basket.  Who wants a bag? Simply comment after you do 1, 2, and/or all 3 of the following:

  1. “Like” Fork and Beans on Facebook {or tell me if you already do}.
  2. “Like” Enjoy Life Foods on Facebook and tell them Fork and Beans sent you.
  3. Leave a comment telling me what chocolatey treat you will make with a bag of nondairy chocolate chips.

The winner will be announced Friday.

So while you are busy entering to win, I am going to get on a plane to meet this precious angel:

If you ask me, this is the best gift anyone could receive in their Easter basket! A free bag of non-dairy chocolate chips is always a close second, however…

        • We are hanging in there. Things are going quite differently than expected, which doesn’t always translate into it’s a bad thing. However, we are a bit disappointed and feel like we have surrendered our expectations…
          Have you and the fam made the move yet?

          April 10, 2012
          • Hmm … I emailed him a couple of days ago. Will call him next week. Heading to Oceanside Monday … to live there – very excited!

            April 10, 2012
            • You *should* be excited!! That is an awesome place! xo

    Oh the schmoopy baby! Squishes! Also, chocolate at my house never survives past the opening the bag stage…

    April 5, 2012
    • Sometimes a handful of choco chips is sufficient. I always have to make sure I sample them for freshness”

    first off, thats the most precious little cutie ever. and no amount of “awwwww”s can do that justice.
    second, for the giveaway, its pretty simple, but i want enjoy lifes goodies for allergy friendly cookies that ive been promising my husband id make for waaaay too long. in my defense, he still has the birthday brownies i made him.

    April 4, 2012
    • Hehehe. Well these choco chips to be put into cookies for your husband should hopefully keep him pacified until his next birthday… And this baby is even cuter in person! Ooohhhhing and aaaahhhhing galore!

      April 5, 2012
  13. My choir master is G.F. and there are a number of Vegans in the choir, they always drool over my cupcakes. So, if I were to win, I’d bake them their very own batch of Las-cupcakes! (after practice first of course so I managed to get them to rise and not sink like a stone 😉 LOL!)

    PS that baby is adorable! Take lots of pictures on your trip!!

    April 4, 2012
    • If you made a GF/vegan cupcake, your choir would lift you up on their shoulders and sing your praises… Hope you win!

      April 5, 2012
  14. I like E.L.F on FB and told them you sent me 🙂

    April 4, 2012
  15. I of course like you on Facebook!!! 😀

  16. ooooooh little tiny bundle of joy (the babe, not the bunny!) Shucks, my ovaries are doing flip flops at the sight of that little one 🙂

    April 4, 2012
    • Tell those ovaries to take it easy! Haha. Funny how even the dusty ovaries like mine even do flips 🙂

      April 5, 2012
  17. Can I sample his ears?

    …the bunny, not the baby. Just in case anyone needed clarification there

    April 4, 2012
    • Thank goodness for clarifying. I was getting worried for a second 🙂

      April 5, 2012
  18. Hola! Wicked post – so cute! Have a fun trip, Cara!

    I love chocolate! If I had a bag of these nondairy chocolate chips I would make my favorite chocolate pie. (It is made with silken tofu) Yum!

    April 4, 2012
    • I would like recipe please! No, for reals! I want it…

  22. Yay for chocolate!! I LOVE their mini chips… I use them in banana bread and cupcakes. With a whole bag of chunks, I think that a batch of ganache is in order… perhaps with some fresh berries for the kidlets?
    Happy travels, and lots of smooches to those sweet new cheeks!! xoxo

    This is the only chocolate my daughter can have so I think I’d make kIsses so she had lots to savor.

    April 4, 2012
    • I adore this idea! Anything for the little ones, right? Precisely!

      April 4, 2012

    I just missed seeing that baby by a few days when I was in that town getting a check up. Now I have baby envy. And I was wishing I had a bunny mold this weekend because I was craving a solid chocolate bunny. Odd. So what would I make? Blondies with cacao butter and chocolate chunks and cherries. Absolutely. No doubt in my mind. Have a safe trip. The worst is over. xo

    April 4, 2012
    • Laurel #

      Oh, and maybe a hint of espresso. 😀

      April 4, 2012
      • Now you are just showing off!

        April 4, 2012
    • What I would give to stop by Laurel’s house for a blondie…

      April 4, 2012
      • Laurel #

        Now you’re just teasing me.

        April 4, 2012
        • Not teasing at all! I just have no way to get there 😦 My sister is complaining “Oh, I’m tired! I just gave birth!” I’m trying to tell her to suck it up but she won’t have any of it. ha

          April 4, 2012
          • Laurel #

            Tell her you have GOT to take Carmian here: http://www.srfestival.com/
            failing that I accept baby pictures as baby cuddles from strangers is just creepy. Make sure YOU get all the hugs and kisses you can and then be sure to stash your luggage with more for later. xo

    Liked them on fb and should have done a long time ago! Love their mega chunks, just bought a bag from whole foods but could always use more!! Planning on making some homemade peanut butter eggs for Easter 🙂

    April 4, 2012
    • One could never have too many bags of Mega Chunks!! Send pics of the pb eggs when you do!

    Awwww babyyyyyy!!!! Sooo cute!! 🙂

    And the chocolate bunny is adorable too. I can’t believe you put a whole bag of chocolate chips into him! LOL

    I’m a fan of Fork and Beans on FB.

    And with one bag of chocolate chips, there’s isn’t just one thing I’ll be making 😀 – Chocolate Chip Cookies, Chocolate Truffles filled with Cashew Butter, Chocolate Mousse… oh boy oh boy! The options are endless!!

    April 4, 2012
    • I like the way you are thinking! Multiple uses–and chocolate mousse??? Goodness, you have me drooling at 9 in the morning…

  31. I would just eat the chocolate straight from the bag…does that count? Maybe I would throw a couple of them into my single serve gooey brownie recipe…

    April 4, 2012
    • It totally counts!! 🙂

      April 4, 2012
  32. I like Enjoy Life on Facebook.

    Now if only I could get their mini chocolate chips for cheaper than I can at my Hy-Vee. I agonize over whether or not I should buy a bag every time I pass them….

    April 4, 2012
    • Well, now you are in the drawing for a free bag so that will hold you over for a while, right? 🙂 I hear ya though. But usually that conversation ends in my head with: What can I get rid of in my shopping cart so I can buy choco chips instead? Priorities, right? ha

      April 4, 2012
  33. I like you on Facebook!

    oohhh, with a bag of Enjoy Life chocolate chips (also a favorite of mine), I’d have to whip up a batch of almond butter chocolate chip cookies!!

    April 4, 2012
    • And send me a couple, right Sooze??? wink wink

      April 4, 2012
  37. *gasp* this is how I know I have been too busy and have way too much going on… I didn’t already like you on facebook!??
