What’s your favorite Valentine’s Day gift? Is it the more traditional chocolates and flowers? A romantic card and dinner reservations? Or perhaps something less traditional, or more extravagant, like a weekend getaway, or jewelry? Mine’s chocolate! Which is kind of odd in that I’m not normally a chocolate kind of person, but there’s just something special about a box of decadent chocolates on Valentine’s Day.
Mmmm, I’m getting hungry just thinking about chocolate covered strawberries! Some decadently sweet strawberries, dipped in smooth, creamy dark chocolate. Are you now thinking chocolate, too? Good, because that’s what this is all about today – chocolate!
