A little bit about the campaign

During this 8 week campaign running from June 22nd to August 10th, we encourage you to follow along with us as we celebrate summer and s'mores like never before. We are in search of the three best s'mores creations, from savory to sweet and paleo to vegan, anything goes! The winning s'mores recipe will be featured in this blog as well as on our Instagram page and website in the Divine Choclate recipes section. 

The purpose of this campaign is to encourage you-- chocolate lovers, bakers, and adventurers-- to design a fun and unique spin on the old classic s'more. We're looking for any flavor, any food, and any amount of Divine Chocolate, as long as it's in there somewhere. We believe that being creative and developing new ways of thinking about chocolate helps foster innovative ideas and more enjoyment for everyone. So send us your best, and we'll look forward to trying them ourselves!

One bar at a time, we're aiming to share the Divine story and encourage you, the chocolate lover, to become a part of this story with us as we stand firmly as a global social enterprise.
