OMG! Can you believe it? Someone's giving away FREE CHOCOLATE! Sure, it's an advertising ploy, but who cares? It's FREE.

Haydee Chocolatier is having a promotional GIVEAWAY. All you have to do is click onto their site, fill in your name and address and they will send you an 8-count sample of their delicious truffles. No shipping and handling charges either. What a bargain. Now, the only sad thing about this is that it is only valid in the US., but hey, if you can get it why not? I found this wonderful offer while surfing through some of my favorite Chocolate Blogs. This particular one is one of my favorites. Heather at Chocolate Bytes, is a blog I check regularly. She finds these amazing Giveaways and Promotions as well as post some pretty good chocolate recipes.

So if you want some FREE chocolate, click on the Haydee Chocolatier site, fill in your information and then wait patiently by your mail box. I am!

Meanwhile, here's my giveaway for today. A delicious and easy to prepare Kahlua Cake recipe. There is nothing difficult about this cake other than trying to keep yourself from slicing up another piece to devour.

It starts out with the gorgeous aroma of melting chocolate pieces in the batter, Kahlua (just for you Gloria) and hints of cinnamon and almonds. Ends with a divine flavor that will leave your mouth asking for more.

You can make this as a bundt cake, cupcakes, a loaf, mini-bundts, or even in rounds. Whip up some whip cream flavored with some additional Kahlua (or not) and sit back and enjoy.

I like to make mine in a regular bundt pan with a sprinkling of powdered sugar on top. But I also compromise with my daughter with the flavored whipped cream.

Making this recipe into small loaves or mini bundts, makes a great little gift for neighbors and friends for the holidays. This coming week I'll be putting out some more inexpensive gift giving ideas. Time's running short. And there's nothing that says Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays, or I Love You, than a gift of CHOCOLATE.

Kahlua Cake

1 box German chocolate cake mix
1 small box instant chocolate pudding
4 eggs
2/3 cup oil
2 cups (16 ounces) sour cream
½ cup Kahlua
1 bag (12 ounces) chocolate chips or 1 disk of chopped Mexican chocolate
Powdered sugar
Freshly made whipped cream, optional

Mix first six ingredients then add chocolate chips and blend in well. Grease and flour bundt pan. Pour in batter and bake in 350º F. oven for 1 hour. After cake is cooled, sift powdered sugar on top. Top with whipped cream if desired.
Diet tip: Eat a chocolate bar before each meal. It'll take the edge off your appetite and you'll eat less.

Last year a Kahlua cake won a contest over my chipotle cake during the holidays. Sad part was, there were only 2 cakes. :(
Everytime you post a recipe with Mexican chocolate, I'm intrigued. Sounds sooo good! :)
I ordered my free chocolates yesterday and put it on facebook. :)
Didn't even think to write a post. :(

Thanks for the free chocolate tip & great recipe. Thanks also for the best wishes you left on my blog re: my RA. As you must know well, it's quite an adjustment getting used to living with a chronic disease - but it helps a lot to know there are others out there who understand. Chocolate helps too :-)
