Chocolate Love

What’s your favorite dessert? Lately, I’ll have to say it’s a piece (or two) of good, dark chocolate. It’s funny that I say that, because growing up, I did not like chocolate AT ALL. In fact, I remember numerous times when I was seriously disappointed when I received chocolate as a gift. How times have changed…

I received an assortment of Ghirardelli chocolates through the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program, and I was very excited! Well, we all were!

The chocolates came with a great little booklet that lists what each chocolate pairs with. I loved it!

I right away looked through our wine fridge to find some wines to pair the chocolate with. Unfortunately, we never got around to pairing the chocolates with wine and other beverages because we were waiting for the “perfect moment” and we just couldn’t stop ourselves from eating them… Before we knew it, they were gone!

All the chocolates were delicious, but Sea Salt Soiree was definitely everyone’s winner. I couldn’t believe how much the toddler liked it!

Questions: Do you like chocolate? I know, for most people that’s a silly question… What’s your favorite type of chocolate? Do you ever pair chocolate with wine?

Be well,
