|If you’ve got an exciting and different sweet or savory chocolate recipe, you have until January 4 to enter January 4 to enter it. This year’s requirement includes “adventure” ingredient: basil, black or pink peppercorns, black sesame seed, cacao nibs, chili pepper (fresh or whole dried), coconut milk, coriander, jicama, kaffir lime leaf, mango, matcha tea, mustard seed, palm sugar, plantain, popping candy, tamarind, tapioca pearls and wattleseed. Last year’s winners included Chocolate Wasabi Pom Poms, Dark Chocolate Caramel Calzoni and Grapefruit Madeleines With Rosemary Infused Chocolate Drizzle. So, as great as your brownies may be, unless their chili pepper wattleseed brownies, they probably won’t make it into the finals.||
Last year’s Grand Prize winner in the Sweet category, Chocolate Wasabi Pom Poms.
|- Grand Prize winners from the Sweet, Savory and Beverage categories will each receive $5,000 and a Scharffen Berger Chocolate Adventure Contest medal, a gold-colored likeness of a Scharffen Berger 3-ounce bar, a special custom Scharffen Berger chocolate collection and dessert cookbooks.
- One Second Place Prize winner from each category will receive a special custom Scharffen Berger chocolate collection worth $250 and a signed copy of The Essence of Chocolate by Robert Steinberg and John Scharffenberger.
