Announcing the official recipe for the April Baking Challenge! All of the details and rules for how to participate in the challenge for a chance to win one of the PRIZES are detailed below.

Today I’m announcing the recipe for the April Baking Challenge!

Last month we did our first ever layer cake recipe and you guys KILLED IT! I was so impressed by all of your gorgeous 4 layer carrot cakes.

I’ll be drawing the winners for that asap, so keep an eye on your email inbox if you joined. Once winners are confirmed they’ll be announced here on the blog and on social media, as always.

With the craziness of the world right now I wanted to do a fun yet simple NOSTALGIC recipe to bring comfort and joy to your home.

The April Baking Challenge recipe selection is…

COSMIC BROWNIES!

This is one of my all-time favorite copycat recipes. As a kid I LOVE the packaged version, but as an adult they taste so artificial and sickly sweet.

My recipe produces brownies that are equally as rich, fudgy, and chewy and look exactly like the original. But they taste SO MUCH BETTER!

Here’s how to participate in this challenge:

(Read completely!)

Step 1: Make a batch of Cosmic Brownies.

Step 2: Take a photo of your brownies and share it before April 30th 11:59pm MST.

Here’s how to share your photo:

Click here to access the challenge landing page. This is where you can get all the latest details, enter the challenge, and see other entries.

Click the button that says “SUBMIT YOUR ENTRY” – this will pop up a little widget where you can submit your photo:

  • You can select your entry photo from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, OR upload directly from your computer, tablet, or smart phone.

There’s also a few optional bonus entries to increase your chances of winning! Including a NEW BONUS: invite a friend to join you! It’s the perfect time to virtually connect and bake together while you’re at home.

Prizes

Every person who submits a photo following those directions will be entered into a random giveaway to win one of two $75 Amazon.com digital gift cards!

The prizes are available to anyone in the world who can shop with Amazon. I will purchase the gift card on your country’s Amazon homepage in the equivalent current market value of $75USD.

The winners will be selected randomly; so don’t worry about taking a perfect picture. Your photos may be put on display to share with my entire audience – that’s hundreds of thousands of people! I will email the winners. Winner must reply within 2 business days or a new winner will be chosen. Official rules are listed in the entry widget.

So what do you think? Are you up for the challenge? I can’t wait to see your out-of-this-world brownies 🙂
