Guess whose birthday is coming up? Mine. To celebrate
slowly dying growing a year older, I decided to share it with you. What’s the fun of having a birthday if you can’t share it?
In my recent trip to Las Vegas, I visited Max Brenner, a fantastic boutique chain that specializes in chocolate: breakfast, lunch, dinner and did I mention chocolate pizza??
His restaurant in Las Vegas not only serves meals but has a small adjacent shop specializing in all things chocolate: soaps, glassware, shirts, you name it. While it’s all really nice, it’s the food that’s amazing. Max Brenner has other locations around the world and unfortunately, limited places around the U.S.
But here’s my chance to bring a bit of Max Brenner to you. Leave a comment between now and the end of the day on July 4 and I’ll randomly select one person to receive a Max Brenner gift set. Included in that gift set is:
- Hazelnuts – caramelized hazelnuts rolled in praline cream and fine cocoa powder.
- Orange – milk chocolate cubes filled with orange peel praline and caramelized pecan bits.
- Praline wafer – milk chocolate and hazelnut cream covered crispy wafer.
- 100% Pure – pure dark chocolate thins.
- Favorite Honey Walnut – honey chocolate cubes filled with praline cream and walnut bits.
And it’s all wrapped in a cute box. How can you resist the packaging? It’s funky and not overly cute. Plus it’s filled with delicious chocolate. So leave a comment if you want a chance to have this for yourself.
Mmmm…who wouldn’t love some chocolates??
Chocolate pizza sounds like an awesome idea. I remember seeing it last year in Vegas, but didn’t go. Someday!
Hope your birthday is a happy one, Darlene! Thanks for sharing and I want some chocolate!!

I totally just found your blog randomly on Facebook because of a recipe on the Dolce Gusto page 🙂 I’m glad I found it! Your blog is AWESOME! I’m excited to see what you’ve posted in the past in order to try new recipes as well as the awesome things to come! Blessings to you! 🙂
Thank you! The partnership with Dolce Gusto was great. I’ll try not to screw any recipes up in the near future.

Happy birthday! I just faced the big 4-0 and lived to tell the tale… 🙂 Love your blog which I only recently discovered via some San Diego blog links.
what kind of base does the chocolate pizza use? is it a normal dough?
It’s a slightly sweet dough with a bit of white chocolate.
Ooh, I’m always up for chocolate – I haven’t tried this brand.
chocolate chocolate chocolate! happy birthday!!
Happy birthday, Darlene! Mmmm chocolate.
Chocolate!!! Yes it should be deemed one of the major food groups. And have never visited this place in Vegas but if I get back I will certainly look them up. And birthdays are great…I have had 66 of them so enjoy and Happy Birthday.
Happy birthday, Darlene! Mmmm chocolate.too.
