For anyone out there that thought winning the Inaugural Blog Giveaway wouldn’t be exciting, this post is dedicated to you. Walid was the lucky winner and after I was informed of his particular food choices, the creation of the Giveaway box began.
This box was, if I do say so myself, pretty epic.
Let me explain through pictures…
First up is homemade granola (original blog post and recipe can be found here)
Then was Walid’s choice of cookie – I was informed to create something ‘healthy’ and something chocolate. I came up with double chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. I may have taste tested a few. Ok, maybe six. I’d like to share that these are fantastic. Recipe will be shared in an upcoming blog post!
Next, as promised, were all the ingredients to make Knock You Naked Brownies (minus the butter). I haven’t heard yet if he’s tackled them, but he’ll be stocked whenever he decides to do so. (I did include the chocolate chips however forgot to include them in the photo. Whoops.)
Very important addition of spatulas came next. What’s a Giveaway from the Spatulas & Buttons blog without spatulas?!? And I don’t know about you all, but I always seem to need more spatulas than I have.
Next are the recipe cards for the granola, the double chocolate chip oatmeal cookies and the KYN Brownies. Very important addition.
I threw in a few extra chocolate items as well. Why? Because as I’ve said before, surprises are fun.
Finally, recipes and card went into a little envelope sealed with….
…didn’t see that one coming, did ya? Ha. Who needs wax seals when you have buttons?!
I packed it all up and off went the box with all its goodies.
It was like counting down to Christmas as I waited to hear when it arrived! I was informed it arrived safely all the way over in DC, hopefully with much of its contents consumed at this point.
So the question now is…don’t YOU want to win the next Giveaway?!? I’m planning the next one, to be announced here in the next few weeks including all the details about how to enter, when the winner will be announced and what will be in THIS particular box. I hope you’re all as excited as I am!
Congrats again Walid for winning this first Giveaway – and best of luck to all of you for the next one!
