But, what about chocolate and peaches?

Granted, peaches are not the most common fruit found in chocolate desserts. Actually, the combination might even sound a bit odd. But maybe we just havent given the humble peach a proper chance to shine. 

Still skeptical?

If life is a bowl of cherries, I’ll take mine with chocolate.

As I’m always looking for excuses to celebrate, aka eat, more chocolate, I discovered National Black Forest Day. ¬†As a proper chocoholic, I’m celebrating the entire week. And thus far, it’s been glorious.

There’s a reason they don’t simply call the duo “chocolate and cherries”. ¬†It’s so much more indulgent than that. ¬†There’s the dark, deep base of rich chocolate, accompanied by tangy tart cherries, slathered in a blanket of luxurious cream, all together orchestrating a symphony in your mouth. ¬†It’s not just dessert, it’s the Black Forest Experience.

I dare you to check out these 13 Black Forest Beauties. ¬†But be warned, these images aren’t for the weak chocoholic. ¬† Once you get lured into the dark chocolate forest, you’ll never find your way out. ¬†(And, that’s not a bad thing.)

Just when you thought you couldn’t endure another foodie holiday, Chocolate Caramel Day sneaks upon us. ¬†Now, if you can resist this great ball of chocolate, being seduced by rich, warm caramel, then one would gather that you have the self control of a super hero.

No surprise, chocolate is my weakness.  And laced with flowing, liquid gold, it momentarily becomes my new best friend.

So though I know my thighs will resent me for it, I declare to chocoholics everywhere, that the entire weekend be devoted to a chocolate and caramel celebration. ¬†Too much of a good thing? ¬†Try slathering apple slices into this blissful combination. Apples. ¬†Healthy. ¬†You’re welcome.

In case you need some direction. Or, just want to drool…
