Picture of How To Enter the Valentine's Day: Sweet Treats Contest
Valentines Day is almost here and one of the best ways into anyone's heart is with a tasty, sugary treat. Chocolates, mints, cookies, cupcakes, and many other sweets are fantastic ways of saying that you care. We want to see what you make for that special someone!

Share your best recipes and candy displays and you could win a no-expenses paid date with our very own Head of Production, Noah Weinstein! Noah is a kissing expert and is skilled in the art of conversation.

If you already have someone, or don't live in San Francisco, then you can choose to get 12 oz. of delicious chocolate-covered cocoa beans from Cocoa Puro instead. We met the people behind this fabulous chocolate at the Austin Maker Faire where they were part of the Food Makers tent, and can promise that these are some of the best chocolates you will ever taste! They're the perfect sweet treat, for Valentine's Day or any day. (We've still got a stash.) Need to know more? The Kakawa Cocoa Beans are fresh-roasted cocoa beans coated with with white, milk, and dark chocolates and cocoa. There are five flavors of chocolate in each bite!

There is no limit to how many entries you can submit or a restriction on where you can enter from.

How do I submit my recipe, by email? I love chocolate and since I married well above my head, I think I will just take chocolate. LOL

I'm stumpped... how does one solve for $1060?

Noah's delivery charge + (2 prizes x 12oz of chocolate) + (6 prizes x (tshirt + stickers + patch)) = $1060?

This must be some very high priced winning loot!

I think we factored in an hourly rate for the "date with Noah" that really drove the price of the contest package up. I value my time very highly, plus, it makes the winner feel more better about themselves.
Does Noah care whether its a guy or girl? ...
"4. Winner agrees that prizes are being provided "as is", and Instructables and contest co-sponsors make no warranty, representation or guarantee regarding the prize, including but not limited to its quality, condition, merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose."

Was that clause added just for Noah?

That's the same text from all of our contest rules. Thanks Weissensteinburg, thanks a lot.
I was curious...the contest page mentions that you're an expert kisser. Are those services included in the prize?
All potential winners are subject to verification at the discretion of Instructables and contest co-sponsors.

Well, you just failed the verification.

I hate you. *chucks a nasty, moldy sandwich.*
I don't even bother to waste the energy on hating you, your not worth it.
lol, you will have to tell us about your "date" with the winning person.
If I pay shipping can I still option A? If so Ed can you poke air holes in the box?
