Happy Saturday friends! I know I don’t typically post on Saturday, but I have something fun to share with you today. It involves chocolate and prizes…do I have your attention now? :)

I’m helping my friend Roxana of Roxana’s Home Baking celebrate the first anniversary of her monthly chocolate party! Roxana is crazy about chocolate, and to mark the occasion of her party’s anniversary, she is featuring chocolate recipes from her blogger friends all month. And she’s encouraging you to share your family’s favorite chocolate recipes too. You’ll even have a chance to win some really great prizes if you do! Official rules and more information on the prizes can be found below.

Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Roxana made my chocolate truffle cookies and is posting about her results today. If you’re a chocolate lover, these cookies are not to be missed. The recipe includes nearly 2 pounds of chocolate – it’s not for the faint of heart :) I raved about them earlier this year, and seven months later, they continue to be the most-requested cookie in this house!
