It's been a while since we talked about chocolate; however...let me reassure you it has never been far from my mind. As most of you know, I love chocolate! I keep a supply at hand at all times. If I should happen to run out, my boss will certainly notice! He must have a sixth sense bout that, or it could be my change from Dr. Jeckle to Mr. Hyde??
Recently I made my mother some chocolate éclairs for her birthday, and had some chocolate cake at a wedding anniversary reception. Then I went to purchase some Halloween candy that was on sale. I waited 5 days before sneaking a piece out. Then after I opened the 100 piece bag, I decided just a few little pieces a day couldn't possibly hurt. Then a friend of mine sent me the above picture of the cupcake she got for her granddaughter. I could feel the chocolate demons starting to rise.
Today is National Chocolate Day. This means you can feed your chocolate demons with no guilty feelings at all. With Halloween around the corner, there are bags and bags of candy on sale, or you could stop for a chocolate milk shake or piece of pie. This is one occasion you sure don't want to miss, so enjoy your chocolate!
