If you find that recipe Uncle Bob - I will send you my address - I would love one of those twuffles!

I am forced to celebrate the holiday - I will eat chocolate all day! Wash it down with a chocolate martini!

SHEESH, chocolate only gets a DAY? How about a YEAR, how about a year for milk chocolate, a year for white chocolate and a century for DARK CHOCOLATE. (yes I'm yelling)
I mean really, the Chinese give every 12th year to a RAT, and chocolate is more important than rats!
The food pyramid should have chocolate at the top. All the other candies should be below it. Then when it gets hot it melts over the other candies and that's how candy bars are born. (that's how I raised my children--to understand nutrition lol)

We have a chocolate fest here in Wisconsin.
Burlington, Wisconsin ChocolateFest 2008

And here is my recipe for my chocolate fix:
8-10 bars caramel milkyway bars
2 sticks of butter
Warm slowly--do not cook
Mix with 9 cups or one box of generic rice crispie cereal.
Pack into a buttered 9 x 13 inch pan.
Top with melted white chocolate w/peanut butter, or dark chocolate, or melted werther's caramels, then chocolate, or...use your imagination.
(I've made this with less milkyway bars, but added Dove symphony bars with toffee chips to make up the weight difference, any chocolate bars will probably do. I tend to have chocolate of all kinds laying *relaxing* around waiting to be made into things. God forbid any of it goes past the expiration date.)

Thanks for reading, oh, and I forgot, wine glasses dipped in dark chocolate then filled with cherry wine, are um...very good.

Uncle Bob, I was sure I sent you that Twuffle Recipe. Okay, I will post it today for sure.

And yes, sadly, I didn't follow up on DH and Alton and they were wrong. Chocolate Day IS the 7th. If there is an Admin around could you please change the title for me?

If you are interested, the 7th is also "Macaroni Day". The 6th is actually "Fried Chicken Day" and "Kissing Day".
