See that cup of coco right there? Looks tasty doesn’t it? The only trouble is… I don’t know how to make it. My homemade version of hot chocolate is water, a splash of milk and two heaping tablespoons of store bought powder. It’s fine, but it isn’t delicious. It’s okay, but it isn’t blissful. It isn’t divine, scrumptious, delectable or mouthwatering in the slightest. It isn’t what Emmy Dawson would serve to her customers at Sweet Shores Chocolate Store.
Yes, that Emmy… the winner of the Facebook contest that gifted her with a chocolate store to run… yes, that run down and outdated shop she gets to keep forever if she turns a profit by the end of the year. Yes, that Emmy, needs a four star coco recipe to help heat up her business and turn her dreams into reality. Never mind she doesn’t have any business experience. Dismiss the rumor you heard around town that she doesn’t even like chocolate. Okay, maybe do think about those things… and then fork over your recipe… because she needs it bad!!
So what do you say? Can you help out my literary friend? Trust me when I say you will be sweetly rewarded!
I am looking for an incredible hot chocolate recipe. A recipe that chases away the winter chills and warms your soul. Do you have one of those? Maybe from Grandma? Or maybe you finally achieved a creamy cup of chocolate perfection after a hundred mornings of trial and error? Yes, that is the recipe I want.
What will you get in return for sharing your (royalty and copyright free) recipe with me, I mean, Emmy?
The recipe will be placed in the Appendix of my novella: The Champion Chocolatier, with your name on the by-line. (Hooray, you are now published!) Your recipe will be accompanied by other recipes mentioned in the book.
I will name a character in the book after you!
And of course, there will be a chocolate prize delivered directly to you.
Email me your recipe along with your name. email@example.com

Complete these three steps by Sunday, April 10th at Midnight.
The winner will be announced by the end of April, after I’ve had a chance to taste test all the recipes!
Thank you in advance for helping poor Emmy. Have I mentioned she is a terrible cook and her version of baking involves visiting the refrigerated section at the grocery store? Please hurry, Emmy and Sweet Shores will be sunk unless she can get a winning recipe ASAP!
