Chocolate Pie

Taste of Summer By Stacy Juba

If you’re a writer, then you won’t want to miss MFRW Summer Camp.
This free event is sponsored by Marketing for Romance Writers, which began as a
Yahoo group of a dozen authors who wanted to know how to market their books. Today
the group has nearly 1800 members. One reason I love this group so much is because
of its frequent free workshops, including the 2nd Annual Summer Camp slated for
July 12-14.
What will you find if you join the Yahoo group? A supportive
environment to focus on learning marketing and publicity. We seek ways to advance
our careers, brainstorm new ventures and ideas, get feedback, and find others interested
in working together. You can take a class or teach one.
While promotions are not allowed on the Yahoo group, news about
pitch sessions and calls for submission are. MFRW coordinates pitch events with
publishers for our members. On Facebook, we promote and share news. We link our
blogs in blog hops, pin books by members on Pinterest, show off our cover models,
and share tweets on Twitter. Those are just a few of the activities of this dynamic
group. We’re open to the entire literary community and we would love for you to
join us.
What will you find during summer camp? Free classes, lots of
them, in all areas of marketing and promotion. You can ask questions, pick up some
new tools, and make new friends.
You can find more about the group and summer camp here. We hope
you’ll join us!
To help spread the word about MFRW and Summer Camp, a bunch of
us are taking turns blogging about the group and sharing a recipe. Today I’m sharing
my special dessert, Chocolate Heath Bar Trifle, which is sure to impress guests
at summer barbecues. My husband loves this dessert so much that he recently asked
me to make it for 50 co-workers!

Chocolate Heath Bar Trifle

1 box chocolate cake mix
2 boxes chocolate instant pudding
Package of crushed Heath Bar
2 small Cool Whip containers (8 oz)
Spread shortening over cake pan. Bake cake following directions
on box. Then make chocolate pudding following the directions on box. Keep pudding
at room temperature. Crumble up cake into chunks and set aside. In a large glass
trifle serving bowl, layer half of the crumbled cake, half the pudding, 1 Cool Whip
container, and half of the Heath bar candy. Repeat layers again. Refrigerate.
Note: Although this looks especially impressive in a glass trifle
bowl, I’ve also used a disposable aluminum pan with a lid. It doesn’t look as magnificent,
but it will still disappear quickly!
