Chocolate Snap Crackle and Pop

Sometimes, I get a craving for a childhood fave. This week, it was for Cocoa Krispies.

They taste nice and chocolatey, in an artificial way, of course.

Pancake Day

It's Shrove Tuesday, aka Pancake Day. Not something I normally celebrate, but I was craving pancakes, so I made some. From a mix. The leftover is in the fridge. I'll add chocolate chips tomorrow.

Happy Valentine's Day

Nothing says Happy Valentine's Day like chocolate.

Hubby got me these Dove Dark Chocolate Hearts, which are a creamy, chocolatey treat. I hope you have some chocolate in your life today. :)

Trying to Stay Warm

It's been frigid here lately. Haven't been outside much. Haven't seen any movies. Haven't found new chocolate, but I did read about a few chocolate shops I didn't know. Yeah, that's shocking. When it warms up, I'll schedule some visits. Meanwhile, for my fellow NYers and anyone visiting, here's the list: http://gothamist.com/2015/02/12/best_chocolate_nyc.php

Signs of adulthood: You get excited by getting a new bathroom sink that has a cabinet underneath!

I spotted boxes of Duncan Hines Simple Mornings Triple Chocolate Chunk Muffin Mix at the grocery store and had to try them. And I'm happy to report that they're reasonably moist, very chocolatey muffins with real chocolate chips, as well as easy to make. You can make 6 giant muffins, a dozen medium size (which I made), or 36 mini muffins. They make a good breakfast treat.

 Definitely a product I'll be buying again.

Chocolate Cake Day is a Thing

Wow, these chocolate are beautiful. Great to look at, but are they great to eat? I don't know that I'd be able to take a bite; it would be like eating art.

And.... it's Chocolate Cake Day! Every day should be Chocolate Cake Day!
