Honmei Choco Contest - February 12th

Postby mindtailor » Sun Feb 01, 2015 12:32 am

In Japan, Valentine's day is a holiday where girls give chocolate to guys, instead of the other way around. Girls either buy or hand-make delicious chocolates to give away, either honmei-choco (to guys they have a romantic interest in) or giri-choco (consolation chocolate to guys who are just friends).

In our contest, EVERYONE (regardless of gender) is encouraged to make delicious chocolate-y treats and give them to the officers for tasting and subsequent judging. Everyone is also encouraged to make more and give it out to your friends.

Some rules/guidelines:
+ All entries are to be primarily comprised of chocolate.
+ Any type of confection is welcome such as cookies, cake, mousse, etc. Don't be afraid to be creative!
+ Store-bought entries will be consumed but not judged.
+ Make it look pretty. Cute molded chocolate will be scored much higher than a melted chocolate bar on a paper plate.
+ Don't stress. Just have fun!
+ Enter something, even if you don't think it's that great. You might just win.
+ Entries are due by break time on Feb. 12th

It can be as fancy as this:

or as plain as this:
(it's a cake)

either way, it will be enjoyed.

So who's making something?
