A day late on the chocolate celebration, but, go ahead, treat yourself!
One of my favorite cookbooks A Gardener in the kitchen, published by the Fort Worth Botanic Garden, has 20, yes, count them, 20 recipes that list chocolate as an ingredient–Cappuccino Flats, Chocolate Bread Pudding with German Chocolate Sauce, Chocolate Chess Pie, Chocolate Crinkles, Chocolate Mousse Cake, Earthquake Cake, German Chocolate Fudge, Grasshopper Pie. Gotta stop; my mouth is watering!
As our days get shorter and cooler, enjoy a hot cup of chocolate/cocoa with whipped cream. What a treat! Indulge yourself.
After all, everyone knows that chocolate has zero calories when eaten in cooked food or enjoyed with a friend. Solitary snacking has negative calories.
