One year ago today I started this blog and it has been a really fun year of trying and sharing new recipes and interacting with all of you wonderful people via this blog!  I have thoroughly enjoyed this year and am looking forward to many more!  I thought it would be appropriate to celebrate one year with at Chocolate Covered Recipe and I chose to feature these Turtle Cheesecake Truffles adapted from Steamy Kitchen’s blog!  I made them for my Mother-in-law’s 60th birthday party and they were a huge hit!  They are easy to make and are absolutely STUNNING on the plate!  They are not overly sweet but are very rich and are perfect for a party!  They also keep very well in the fridge for a couple days if you need to make them ahead of time.

I ALSO thought I would start off my second year of blogging with my first GIVEAWAY!  I am going to make a batch of my Famous Chocolate Chip Cookies for one lucky reader!  The rules are simple:  All you need to do to enter is to be a subscriber of my blog and leave a comment on this post!  I will then randomly pick a winner and contact you via email to find out where to send the cookies!  This giveaway is unfortunately restricted to within the USA.  Good luck to all!
