This is a chocolate lover’s deam or nightmare, not sure which. I will have to wait until later to try this one but it is definitely going onto my “must try” list. It sounds so good!!!

Pat - it is sooooo good - and it can cure anything and make everything better. Best made when no one is around - then of course - you don’t want to waste any of it - so you eat the whole thing!! It puts you in chocolate heaven!!!

Can you imagine - chocolate heaven - stepping up chocolate steps to the golden gates - which are actually made of chocolate and wrapped in gold foil!!! And having chocolate throughout eternity!!!

I think I need a chocolate fix! LOL
