Dreaming of Chocolate?

Aren’t we all? It’s Valentine’s Day and consumers have spent over 300 million on chocolate over the past week . Three….hundred…million. That’s 58 million pounds of chocolate! That’s A LOT of chocolate but being a chocolate lover myself, I can’t say that I’m all that surprised. Over the past month I have been to two popular Portland events centered around what else? Chocolate.

“For the Love of Chocolate” – Portland Chocolate Festival

To say that I am a chocolate lover is a bit of an understatement. I have developed the WORST habit of craving chocolate after dinner. Sometimes I’m even desperate enough to grab a handful of semi-sweet chocolate chips if I happen to have some leftover from my latest baking project.
