A Week of Chocolate and a Chocolate-Filled Giveaway: #Choctoberfest!

I am super excited because today is the first day of #Choctoberfest!  What is #Choctoberfest, you might ask?  A week full of chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate!  Yes!

#Choctoberfest is a virtual event put together by The PinterTest Kitchen.  Bloggers from around the world will be posting their favorite chocolate recipes, and you'll get a chance to win some awesome prizes!

Of course, the prizes involve lots and lots of chocolate.  Chocolate and chocolate accessories!  You guys are going to love this!
