Happy Valentine’s Day!

Oh Valentine’s Day. Whether you love it or think it’s the product of greeting card company marketing, you can’t deny that it’s a great holiday for candy – and post-holiday candy sales!

DGZ Chocolates – Toffarazzi

On Wednesday, I reviewed 2 of the 3 confections that I got to try as free samples from DGZ Chocolates. Today, I’ll review the third, the Toffarazzi, which is their best seller. And for good reason!

Easiest Recipe Ever?

Via The Hairpin, an absurd chocolate non-recipe recipe from The Food Network. Check out the comments; they’re pretty hilarious. A few examples: “This was delightful! I’m also looking for recipes for “Milk Chocolate” and “White Chocolate.” Does anybody have any?” “Ellie, I would like to double this recipe, as I’m married. Do I need to…
