To all of you who were following my ’31 Days of Chocolate’ posts in October, my deepest apologies. I didn’t quite make it through the month.
I thought I could keep up the posts while I was out of town, but as my fellow bloggers know- preparing posts can be quite time consuming.
On a brighter note, I’m looking forward to sharing my chocolate adventures with you in upcoming posts.
I hope you all had a Happy Halloween filled with lots of delicious chocolate treats!
October 22nd: Watch Peanuts’ Great Pumpkin, Eat chocolate peanuts 🥜
October wouldn’t be complete without a screening of a childhood favorite.
What’s your favorite Halloween movie?
October 21: Spook up a sundae with Halloween treats

I’m passing on this one… any takers?
October 20th: Visit a fall festival, eat something on a stick
Chocolate covered cheesecake, frozen bananas, cotton candy, ice cream bars, marshmallows, apples…it’s all good.

October 19th: Chocolate & Cheese Tasting

Checkout this previous post for pairing suggestions.
October 18th: Make and Eat Chocolate Caramel Apples
If there’s one food that is symbolic of the season, it’s the candy apple.
Just one bite and all your dreams will come true.
STOP! Don’t eat that…
There’s no caramel or chocolate on that apple.
Start with some warm, buttery caramel.
Add some rich, thick chocolate.
Drench it in your favorite toppings.
Now, that’s the apple that will make all your dreams come true.❤️
October 17th: Watch The Goonies, Eat Baby Ruth bars
Have one bar, or two, or the whole darn bag because…”Goonies never say Die-t”
Did I get that wrong? Either way, diet is a bad word. If you catch yourself saying it, wash your mouth out with some chocolate.
October 16th: Eat “Dirt”
No, we’re not talking about actual dirt. We’re talking about Dirt Cups. And if you’re a parent, you’re probably more than familiar with them. Kids love the staple ingredients to this dessert- crushed Oreos and gummy worms.

October 14th: Enjoy a Fall dessert in honor of National Dessert Day
My jeans are yelling, “You’ve been eating Fall desserts every single day.”
But, the voices in my head are yelling something different.
Perhaps, just one little cookie….
Ms. Fields Yummy Mummy Cookie Cake
Or, just a small bite…
Vampire Teeth Cupcake
Or, one tiny slice of cake.
Halloween Chocolate Cake

And, if one little slice, leads to the whole cake, that’s okay. It’s a special time of year.
