Fall Fest wants your brownies

PROCTOR Attention all chocolate lovers: sweet temptations await at the Great Brownie Bake-Off and The Chocolate Challenge during the Our Yard of Proctor Fall Festival, Sept. 27. The two categories in the 2008 Everything Chocolate Bake-Off Contest feature chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate as junior bakers (up to age 14) can enter a favorite brownie recipe while amateur adult bakers can compete in the chocolate challenge with any type of chocolate recipe. Entries must contain King Arthur Flour and chocolate. A copy of the recipe typed/printed on an 8-1/2" x 11" sheet of paper and an empty bag of King Arthur Flour must be presented upon entry. Do not put your name on your entry as numbers will be assigned upon entry. All entries should be submitted in a disposable foil, plastic or paper plate or container. There is no refrigeration available so please keep this in mind when deciding upon your entry. Entries will be accepted from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the King Arthur Bake-Off Booth in the Proctor Main Street Park. Judging will begin at 1:15 p.m. for junior bakers and 2:15 p.m. for adult amateur bakers. First Prize in each category is gift certificates to the King Arthur Flower Baker's Catalogue. Second place wins the King Arthur Flour Cookie Companion Cookbooks and third place earns a King Arthur Flour apron. Ribbons are awarded to all entries. In addition to the Bake-Off, another highlight of the Proctor Fall Festival are Vermont Railways train rides throughout the day culminating in a cocktail hour excursion with hors d'oeuvres and cash bar. The festival also features the Proctor Fire Department's famous chicken BBQ, arts, crafts and food vendors, and children's activities. Copies of the complete set of rules for the Everything Chocolate Bake-Off are available at the Proctor Town Office.
