It's Cold Wet Windy and Time For ~ Chocolate! CC 157

It is an undeniable fact

Chocolate for many

Is The

Pièce de résistance.

~~~~ 

Hot Chocolate

Winter has surely set in here now and that need to feel warm and cosy and well fed is paramount for those of us who are fortunate enough in this day and age to be blessed with food on the plate, a fire on the hearth, shelter and the occasional Chocolate.

I had quite a good reaction to my recent background photo of the boxed chocolates. Of course they were there for everyone to enjoy and it seems we had some takers too.

Do you have a favourite chocolate?

I do and it is Dark Chocolate over Ginger... Yummy.

 

 

I found this catchy little Chocolate song on youtube.

Guaranteed to get you up and moving after you have eaten your small ration of Chocolate for the day.

As They Say

"Chocolate causes certain endocrine glands to secrete Hormones that affect your feelings and behavior by making you happy. Therefore, it counteracts depression, in turn reducing the stress of depression. Your stress-free life helps you maintain a youthful disposition, both physically and mentally. So, eat lots of chocolate! -Elaine Sherman, Book of Divine Indulgences"

              

 

"Life is like a box of chocolates – you never know what you’re going to get.  -Forrest Gump in “Forrest Gump” (1994"

 

 

And How Can I do a Blog about Chocolate and not mention one of my very favourite movies.

Chocolat...Sigh Sigh Sigh.....JD......and Chocolate.

  20. O my stars I just watched the trailer for "Chocolat"
    Why didn't I know Johnny Depp was in it?!
    Off to video store to hire it out - and buy some milk tray assorted chocolates,
    and those chocolate balls with chopped nuts on the outside,
    and chocolate sante bars,
    and twix,
    and ...
    and ...
    and ...

    Thanks Milli!

  28. I have never tried it with black pepper nor any of the other savouries that I know it is sometimes combined with.
    As for Chocolat the move......yes the chocolate was a definite sweetener in the movie. So was JD what a combo it was sublime.

    ReplyDelete
  29. For you and I it probably would seem that way but have a read of this Lynda...
    Chocolate and chilli make a fantastic combination in the kitchen. Chocolate and chilli is the oldest culinary chocolate combination in the world. The Aztecs of Central America first enjoyed chocolate as a spicy drink, made with chillies.

    Chocolate and chilli are now used as a combination in a number of sweet and savoury recipes, including cakes, biscuits and the Mexican mole.
