Love to bake with chocolate? Then the Colorado State Fair has a competition perfect for you. Registration is now open for the Ghirardelli Chocolate Championship.
Bakers must submit a recipe with at least one all natural Ghirardelli baking product (chocolate chips, bars and/or cocoa), and up to 10 other ingredients. Any type of chocolate creation is welcome--cookies, cakes, snacks, desserts, etc.
First and second place entries win $150 and $50 respectively. The top three winners take home a Ghirardelli gift basket, plus a prize ribbon, apron and award certificate.
The contest will be held on Friday, August 27 at the fairgrounds in Pueblo. You must register by August 25. For contest details, official rules, and a list of other special contests, contact the Colorado State Fair general entry office at 719-404-2080 or click here.
