March Recipe Madness: Game #2


It's March Madness, so I decided to have a little fun on my blog. Earlier this week, I kicked off a March Madness themed recipe competition on my blog! I started with 8 sweet treat recipes, and today I have it down to 4. YOU help determine the winner by sharing, commenting, and viewing the best sounding recipes!

Here's the game set-up and the latest results. I decided to extend the game lengths a little longer to leave more time for sharing and voting!!

Scoring:

Free Throw (1 pt): Past and present views of recipe on blogger (I'll divide to make a more reasonable score, ex: 100 views = 1 point)

Dunk (2 pts): Vote for the recipe (see polls below)

3 Pointer: Share or shout-out on social media during the game. Can be a pin, Facebook share, tweet, mention on blog, etc. Just make sure and let me know by commenting below!

Game Schedule:

Final FourStarts now and runs through 10 PM EST March 24
Championship: Starts March 25 and Ends 10 PM EST March 28

Results from the First Round:


Cupcakes:
Cannoli - 12
Andes Mint - 8

Each cupcake scored 4 point from the poll, but Cannoli took the lead with twice the number of pageviews when compared to Andes Mint.

Pies:
Key Lime - 11
Caramel Banana - 6

The pies tied in the voting, so they each got 4 points. Key Lime got a lot of love in pageviews, though, and crushed Banana Caramel

Cookies:
Andes Mint - 12
Strawberry White Chocolate - 9

Andes Mint may have lost the cupcake round, but it held strong in the cookie round against Strawberry White Chocolate.

Sweet Drinks:
Orange Julius - 28
Cinnamon Roll Hot Chocolate - 5

There wasn't much competition here, Copycat Orange Julius is definitely the recipe to beat. The pageviews alone gave it a competitive edge over Cinnamon Roll Hot Chocolate.

Round #2:

So, as you can see from the updated bracket, it is now Cannoli cupcake vs. Key Lime pie and Andes Mint cookies vs Copycat Orange Julius.

Below are the updated polls for you to help determine the winner. Don't forget you can also share your favorite recipe on your blog, or social media. Make sure and comment here if you share something!
