Today is the What's Your Chocolate? blog hop. A big thanks and a handful of Oreo cookies to M. Pax, Laura Eno, Brinda Berry, and Ciara Knight for hosting! Here are the instructions copied from Brinda's blog: Post about your favorite chocolate – what it means to you, where and when you indulge, a favorite memory – anything chocolate-related.
I have a lot of happy memories involving chocolate...There was the time when my husband-then-boyfriend brought me to La Fondue, a fancy and romantic fondue restaurant in Saratoga. Our dinner was dee-lish and our dessert came with a wicked pot of chocolate fondue...I remember remarking to my husband-then-boyfriend afterward about how awkward it could be for two people to have a long fondue dinner if they were on a first date and not clicking. Hence, some advice for my single readers...Fon-DON'T if you're not sure about that other person yet...
A more recent memory...Earlier this summer, shortly after I had my baby, I wanted to do a "mommy and me" activity with my toddler daughter. So I made chocolate cupcakes with her for the first time. She helped me mix the batter, put filling into a couple of the cupcakes, and line the muffin pan. She had such a cute, purposeful expression on her face while we worked together- I was letting her participate in a "grown-up" activity, after all.
What experiences have you had with chocolate or other sweets?
