We Should Cocoa, Two Years Old, going on Three – the September Challenge
Can you believe it? We Should Cocoa has done a stunning two years, that’s a total of 24 monthly chocolate challenges – wow! I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who has entered during this time and made it such a fabulous event. We’ve had so many creative, tasty and beautiful entries submitted over these two years. I wish I had enough time in my life and space in my stomach to sample them all. I’d like to give special thanks to the We Should Cocoa stalwarts who contribute on a regular basis, in particular those who were there for the very first challenge over at Chocolate Teapot:
- Hannah from Corner Cottage Bakery
- Suelle from Mainly Baking
- Phil from As Strong As Soup
- Lucy from The KitchenMaid
- Caroline from Cake, Crumbs and Cooking
While I’m in grateful mood, I’d also like to express my gratitude to those that have guest hosted some of the challenges and have done such a wonderful job of managing the event:
- Laura of How to Cook Good Food chose Almonds
- Lucy of The KitchenMaid chose such a popular ingredient she had to do her round-up in two parts Coffee 1 and Coffee 2
- Janice of Farmersgirl Kitchen hosted last month’s challenge which was Cherries. If you haven’t seen the round-up, do check it out.

So, as it is a birthday month for We Should Cocoa and it rolls into its third year, I’m hoping you will all join us in celebration and create something chocolatey that is inspired by a cocktail. Now, don’t panic. This doesn’t have to be a cocktail, although it could be, it doesn’t have to contain alcohol, though it could do, it doesn’t even have to be the flavours of a specific cocktail, just something that conjures up cocktails for you.
Now, whilst everyone is giving themselves a headache wondering what on earth to do for this month’s challenge, I am hoping to be lounging around drinking cocktails myself – if CT behaves himself, he might get one or two. Well that’s probably only figuratively speaking, but I am going away on holiday for a whole week – to the Scilly Isles no less and should be well on the way by the time anyone reads this post. So, in absentia, I raise a glass to you all.
Apologies for the annoyance caused, but I am re-instating word verification on blog comments for the time being. I am being inundated by spam and can no longer cope with the sheer volume. I might try turning it off again in a few weeks time to see if the break stops the comments.
