How Do I ♥ Chocolate?

….let me count the ways! 😉

I know there are people who don’t like chocolate but I’m NOT one of them.

I L-O-V-E all things chocolate!!!

How about you? Are you a chocoholic or can you give it a pass?

These days, if at all possible, it’s organic cocoa and chocolate, as my first choice.

You can read more about why choosing organic chocolate/cocoa is the best way to go here and here.

And here are some of my fav chocolate treats, with recipe/review links where applicable:

Sweets for Your Sweetie! Happy Valentine’s Day

February…..

The month in Canada that usually heralds the last, cold blast of winter. On the plus side, February is also the month of  ♥ and Valentine’s Day! And what better way to celebrate than to make some oh so easy, homemade chocolates for you and those you love.

I have quite a collection of chocolate heart boxes from over the years. Some so beautifully decorated, they are like works of art. I find it hard to discard/recycle these. So much better to fill them up  again, with yummy chocolates from the kitchen. 😉

The following is a recipe from my cookbook: Not Just for Vegetarians that was also featured in my craft book: A Year of Crafts,  years ago as a Valentine’s project. They are very easy to make but still decadent and delish. 

See page 2 for complete recipe.
