You know about the Chocolate Adventure Contest, right? With $20,000 in prizes, you certainly should! This year, this inventive recipe competition is all about cupcakes. TuttiFoodie.com and Scharffen Berger chocolate invite you to create a cupcake, using at least 1 of 14 adventure ingredients—from stout beer to beets, from bee pollen to coconut cream—in combination with Scharffen Berger chocolate.

The San Francisco kickoff party with Elizabeth Falkner at Orson is Thursday eve, October 7th. Imagine: special adventure ingredient cocktails and cupcakes (all complimentary), along with other delicious treats, plus exciting blind tasting contests. This invite-only party is normally reserved for media guests and friends of the contest, but this year they’re extending 15 invitations to 15 lucky tablehopper readers.

All you need to do to enter is forward today’s tablehopper newsletter to two friends (but even more would be so very fabulous), and add a note to your friends about the Chocolate Adventure Contest, then Cc: or Bcc: me at luckyme@tablehopper.com so I know you sent it—I promise I won’t use anyone’s email address. The deadline to enter is Monday October 4th by 11:59pm. I will notify the 15 winners on Tuesday the 5th. Good luck! We hope to see you at the event!

Feel free to submit your cupcake recipes to the Chocolate Adventure Contest, which launches today, October 1st, and runs through January 2nd!
