Time for the Wicked Good Hop

CLC Halloween Promo 2019

🎃🎃 Hi all!🎃🎃

It’s time for the big Halloween hop over at the Chicklit Chat HQ! This year’s theme is the Wicked Good Hop! Halloween is one of my favourite times of the year – all fun, and everybody gets to eat chocolate for supper! Yay!

Oh, is that just in my house? Hmm…

Anyhoo…40 RomCom authors are giving away spooky, fun prizes, and 5 lucky readers will win a grand prize – 6-packs of super yummy Wicked Good Cupcakes!


These cupcakes in a jar were first seen on Shark Tank back in 2013, and they’ve grown in popularity ever since. CLC HQ loves supporting female-owned businesses, and Wicked Good Cupcakes was founded by the mother/daughter team of Tracey Noonan and Danielle Vilagie. These ladies have big hearts and donate a portion of their sales to different charities all throughout the year.

Our Grand Prize winners will get to choose their own cupcake flavors for their 6-packs. Wicked Good Cupcakes has a wonderful selection of regular flavors that will satisfy any sweet tooth (they also have gluten-free options!). Plus, they currently have four special fall flavors and two yummy Halloween cupcakes (details below).

🍎 Caramel Apple Streusel: Fresh apple cake layered with caramel, streusel and cinnamon cream cheese, buttercream frosting.

🍫🎃 Chocolate Pumpkin (Oh My Gourd!): What’s better than a rich, moist fudgy brownie combined with a Pumpkin Cream Cheese swirl? Umm. Two! We layer this delicious brownie between layers of our cream cheese butter cream frosting and top it off with chocolate vermicelli.

🍫 Mocha Madness: Chocolate cake swirled with chocolate fluffy filling, espresso frosting and crushed Oreos.

🎃 Pumpkin Spice: Our moist pumpkin cake layered with cinnamon cream cheese, buttercream frosting and decorated with tiny candy fall leaves. They’re as beautiful as they are delicious.

👻 Reverse Chocolate Boo-Day: Our yummy, chocolate cake layered with Halloween colored sprinkles, our famous vanilla frosting and topped with a royal icing Halloween character.

🧛‍♂️ Reverse Vanilla Boo-Day: Moist vanilla cake swirled with our decadent chocolate buttercream frosting and topped with seasonal Candy Corn.

So, be sure to visit this group every day of the hop, starting on Monday, October 21st, so that you can enter to win your own devilishly delicious pack of cupcakes! 🧁
