Holiday Recipe Exchange Announcement

It’s hard to believe the holiday season is right around the corner – it seems like yesterday I was taking down the tree and obsessively packing everything into the attic.

If you have been following My Baking Addiction for a while, you may remember the Holiday Recipe Exchange that Katie and I organized with many of our favorite brands. We had so much fun creating recipes, hosting product giveaways and browsing through your entries, that we just had to do it again. Only this time around it’s bigger and better!

We learned a lot last year through trial and error and hope that we have greatly streamlined the process for the participants. One of the biggest changes is that even if you do not have a blog, you can still participate! We will also be choosing the giveaway winners via a random integer program – so no more bribing your coworkers and family for votes!

Katie and I started working on this project in July – yes, July – and are thrilled to let you know that we have extended the Holiday Recipe exchange to include 12 weeks this year, so we’ll be covering a lot of territory – in hopes that everyone will find a category that strikes their fancy.

The Holiday Recipe Exchange will launch on Monday, October 3rd. The post is sponsored by Scharffen Berger and theme will be – you guessed it! Chocolate.

There is a full schedule of all dates and sponsoring companies. We are really excited about this project and are thrilled to be working with some of the best companies in the industry.

We hope you’ll browse the schedule, find a topic that appeals to you and participate in Holiday Recipe Exchange.

    I’m not a food blogger but I do have a blog so I’m going to participate in this super fun idea! I already know what I’m going to make for my chocolate recipe (though I’ve never made it–with the ingredients I’m using it’s got to be great!) Thanks in advance for the fun!

    I don’t make sweets very often, but, when I do, I’ll try to match them up with one of your categories. What fun!
