VegNews Dessert Contest with Chloe Coscarelli: Winner & Finalists

After receiving countless delicious entries, we present the VegNews Dessert Contest winner and finalists!

We asked, and you delivered. After reviewing hundreds and hundreds of dream vegan dessert submissions from readers around the world, VN editors and Chloe Coscarelli had the tough task of narrowing down our favorite dessert submissions to 10 finalists and one winner. 

Congratulations to Deborah Biggs, our Grand Prize Winner, who will receive a KitchenAid Mixer, signed copies of Chloe's Kitchen and Chloe's Vegan Desserts (which hit shelves February 19), and her dream dessert come to life in our September+October 2013 food issue. Chloe is already hard at work on developing a mouthwatering recipe for Deborah’s entry. The 10 finalists each receive a signed copy of Chloe's Vegan Desserts. Thank you to all who entered and here’s to dream (vegan) desserts!
