Pivot Point Dessert Game Giveaway!


I have decided to do another giveaway because I was inspired, yet again. Plus I'm anxious to read Kasie West's new book The Distance Between Us available this July. So I guess I'm doing a Pivot Point theme giveaway to tide me and other fans of Kasie's over until the summer release. Back in February I was able to meet Kasie West at a book signing and even got to hear her presentation about her journey to publication. She was SUPER informative, and made the night really fun. As a writer I took everything she said to heart. I only wish that I had asked her one question that had been on my mind since reading Pivot Point. Is the dessert game real?

I think about this silly question often because it was one of many favorite parts of the book for me. A game where friends split into two teams and drive to one team mates house and have to make a dessert out of the contents of that person's kitchen. Best dessert wins and the losing team excepts a dare from the winning team. 

So you can see where this little giveaway is going. First the PRIZE! One Winner will receive (1) signed copy of Pivot Point by Kasie West, (1) $10 Cold Stone Creamery gift card and (1) duct tape wristlet mini purse made by me and inspired by the cover of Pivot Point. 

Now the fun part! What CREATIVE dessert do you LOVE to make! For example, I had a chocolate attack the other night and was able to make a gooey Chex mix with brown sugar, butter, a cup of gold candy, and a variety of chocolate morsels. I do feel it needed a green apple though...anyway, I am a baker so I do have an advantage most times. But that will not excuse simple desserts! I want your fun and crazy ideas that you have tested yourself because I want to try them too. Even if they didn't work I still want to know. There are many other ways to enter but this will get you the most entries with the Rafflecopter form below. So in the comment box below describe your dessert and let me know if it was successful or not. You can enter once each day if you'd like. The more desserts the better!

The Prize!
U.S. Only. Sorry :(

  2. Chocolate crinkles are the name of the cookies I've actually been searching for. Had them a couple of times but never knew their name. Thanks!

  3. Hmm.. how about a Campfire Deluxe Sundae. Vanilla ice cream, topped with graham cracker crumbles, marshmallow topping and hot fudge. Delicious!

    2. Did you know you can steam/bake a cake in a large pot over a campfire? surprisingly good.

      My favorite campfire dessert is baked apples. You core about 3/4 of the way down and stuff with brown sugar and cinnamon or chocolate chips wrap tightly in foil and put directly on coals or low fire until soft. You can also add cinnamon hots to give it spice.

      I have also made bannan split dessert. Take a bannana, pull one side open, cut a v shaped slit, stuff with marshmallow, chocolate chips, fruit, whatever you want, wrap in foil and set near edge of fire, turning once and then you open and eat. Yummy.

  4. My favorite cake (which is odd because I love chocolate most in everything but this) is a Double Vanilla Pound Cake. It is so good. I get so many compliments for it. I don't even frost it it's so good as it. Sometimes I serve with strawberry or mango(or both) sauce and whipped cream. To die for.

  5. Yum. You guys are killing me with these desserts. And Celine, funny, you aren't the only one who has asked that question. But no, the dessert game is something I made up. It sounded fun. And maybe I was craving desserts that day (which wouldn't surprise me because I'm always craving desserts). :) But I totally wish I would've played it in high school.

    1. Me too! I so want to go back to high school just to play this game. I may have to incorporate this game in future family and friend gatherings. Maybe ask everyone to bring an ingredient. Lol! :D

  6. I I love Granny Smith apples chopped up mixed with cool whip (the one in the pink bowl) and crushed up health bars. All mixed together. It's freaking awesome. All those deserts sound so good.

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  7. I core a apple and put in it a apple baker and put in the microwave for 1 minute. I put brown sugar on it and sometimes I put on maple syrup. Really good..:)

  8. You could make a simple and delicious apple enchiladas with tortillas, apple pie filling, cinnamon, and vanilla ice cream (:! YUM! Make me a bowl while your at it. Thank you for this wonderful giveaway!

  9. Baked cake out of pancake batter--I make this when I want something sweet and am out of vegetable oil/eggs/or cake mix. Just dry pancake batter, milk, and add-ins! I've added in lots of things, but my favorite is to add in peanut butter chips, bananas, chocolate chips, and then instead of frosting spread with nutella. And by spread I mean liberally plop blobs of nutella into bowl.

  10. Well, normally I do cupcakes (and some interesting flavors at that) but when I don't want to dirty all my pots and measuring utensils I will spread butter on a tortilla, liberally dust it with cinnamon sugar, and pop it in the microwave. When it's done I roll it up and scarf it down. It's kind of like an inside out churro! :)

  11. I made this dessert when I was around 9 or 10 years old and have been dying to remember it since. It was so easy and so delicious it's almost impossible to believe but I think I literally used just honey and cooked oatmeal (possibly one other mystery ingredient that baffles my mind right now) and baked it in the toaster oven. It was not too sweet and now I know somewhat healthy too lol.

  12. Peanut Butter cookies -- they just use 1 cup of Peanut Butter and sugar and 1 egg! Mix and bake at 350 for 6-10 mins!

  13. Sophia I love anything with oatmeal. I will definitely try it. Carolsue peanut butter is a favorite ingredient at my house and your quick thinking recipe will do in a pinch when I often run out of flour. :)
