Chocolate Frenzy

I'm addicted. I admit it. 100%, full-throttle, live it, breathe it, dream it addicted to chocolate. So there should be no surprise when I tell you of my new hobby.....chocolate making!

It started when I wandered past a heart-shaped chocolate mold and thought, Hmm, I could do that! And I did and I LOVE it! How fun it is to take the silky, fragrant, molten chocolate and shape it into wonderful little gems in all shapes and sizes. The scent of warm chocolate fills the motorhome and swirls out the windows making our neighbors lift their noses in the air and sniff deeply as they walk by. I love cleaning up and licking the bowls and spoons and my fingers and I love seeing the trays of cooling chocolates lined up in military rows with all the promise of their creamy lusciousness forming before my eyes. I love bagging the little nuggets of goodness in pretty little bags and passing them out and I love the smiles and excitement they bring and I love watching the pause as the receiver ponders the choice of which gem to pop in their mouth.

But, what I really love most? EATING THEM! Duh! Ok, enough typing. I'm off to tackle chocolate truffles.....

I'm one of those baffled few who doesn't understand the goodness of chocolate, I really don't. I think it's icky. The hubs knows that if he brought me chocolate for V-day, all he'd receive in return is an angry glare...
lol, obviously, there is something really very wrong with my taste buds!

Yummy! You need to move back home so we can open a chocolate, book, tea shop w/ baked goods and some mineral makeup thrown in. That looks like such a fun hobby good thing you are running again to burn all those calories.

Tina, I have only one thing to say to you, "WOOHOO! More chocolate for me!" :)

Lori, if I could snap my fingers and make that happen, you and I would sooooo be in busy RIGHT NOW! Oh, and there's not enough running in the world to make up for the chocolate I've been consuming. :)
