8 Great Excuses to Enjoy Chocolate


8 great excuses to enjoy chocolate #valentines #chocolate

Do you really need an excuse to eat chocolate? We don’t.

And what about love? Shouldn’t it be celebrated every day of the year? We think so.

We’ve  lived in the US for almost 20 years, and still don’t get it.  What’s the deal with  Valentine’ s day? Overpriced roses and awful heart shaped chocolates.   We  say, let’s eat chocolate and spread love every day. Who’s with us???

In case you need some inspiration, check out some awesome chocolate recipes from very talented food bloggers.  Nothing says I love you, like something you took the time to make  ( and if it has chocolate even better 🙂 )
