Cravings--Chocolate Anyone?

When winter finds us seeking warmth and comfort, one perfect thing comes to my mind…

Chocolate

Whether served in a steaming mug with a dollop of whipped cream dancing on top, dipped from a fondue pot and drenching your favorite fruit, wrapped in foil, enrobing a slice of cheesecake, or painted on the lips of your special someone, chocolate is decadent and a favorite indulgence of many. My writing sessions wouldn’t be complete without a cup of dark-roast coffee and a bit of dark chocolate. Feeds my fantasies and creativity like nothing else. Rich on the tongue. Teasing. Fulfilling. Hints of smoky sweetness lingering long after I've devoured the last bite.

The Mayans and Aztecs drank their chocolate. Cortez didn’t care for the bitterness of cacao but used the beans for trading and currency. Physicians once used chocolate for treating various maladies. Spas tout the aromatherapy and antioxidant benefits. Couples use it to heighten their romantic experiences. Whether or like your chocolate pure or seasoned with a bit of chipotle, ginger or peppermint we know…

Here’s a delicious video to whet your chocolate appetite --



After watching this clip I’m craving a chocolate dessert whipped up by a man who can wear the chef’s apron as well as the hero in the video.

Here’s to a satisfying new year for us all! Enjoy every moment. Indulge within reason. Seek love and happiness everywhere possible!

Hey Elen!

Glad you enjoyed the video :) That's the best one I've watched in a long time. Totally worked for marketing IMO :)

Hope you have a great week!

Hi, Nicole!

I also loved the video. Couldn't resist sharing :)

Glad to hear you're among those of us who are chocolate lovers :)

What's not to enjoy when there's a sexy man advertising something as delicious as chocolate? :)

Hope you have a great week!

Shawna, your post reminds me that I discovered the most wonderful candy ever! Someone had a jar, probably a holiday gift, of chocolate covered peanut brittle on their desk at work. I love peanut brittle, so I took a piece. I almost stopped in my tracks in the hallway. It was sooo delicious. The next day, I went back for more but it was compeltely gone and the jar was in the trash. So I dug the jar out of the trash and looked up the company on the Internet. I know what my husband is getting me for Valentine's Day!

Smiles across the miles,

Shawna
