Release Your Inner Chocolate Story Teller

Riddle me this, Batman. What's special about chocolate for you? Well, let go and tell your chocolate story. Allow that child in you to release the joy. In my mind, chocolate is about joy, so you are going to get the benefit of my story.

My story will be part example for you, and part my own release of that inner story teller. As your favorite chocoholic, I get to share my joy with many.

My Chocolate Story


Every summer of my childhood, we traveled to my grandmother's home. For years, she had ready my older sister's favorite, butter pound cake. Then one year, she made a Devil's Chocolate Cake. I remember clearly that first bite. The creamy texture on my tongue, the indulgent flavor on my taste buds, the immediate need to have more. I was hooked.

Oh, yes, Gramma's Devil's Chocolate Cake was one of those highlights of my summer from then on. She even joked that her cake was more important to me than her. Uhhh...no wait, it really was a joke.

But, that memory still joyfully bounds around my brain whenever I see a chocolate cake of any kind. Whether that was my first introduction to chocolate, I don't know. I do know it was my first memory of eating that yummy confection. And I will be forever grateful to Gramma for giving it to me.

Go Ahead, Release Your Own Story


My story was about a memory. Yours maybe, also. But it doesn't have to be. It can be about anything
that makes chocolate special for you.

Easy Chocolate Mousse by Jodi_K includes her story. A young girl who could even make dessert for the family. Honestly, this looks like my kind of chocolate dessert.

If you have a great story, share it. It doesn't need to be a dessert recipe, it can be any story about your own inner chocolate... Er, inner chocolate story teller. Anyway, write your own story, with or without recipe and let me know. You may just find yourself featured by this chocoholic!

  1. My most recent chocolate story is right up there with my best chocolate stories! It was just a regular day of the week, I was sitting here trying to write articles, trying to stay on schedule in spite of a defective keyboard. A keyboard that clearly has a mind of it's own and does its own thing. (note: replacement keyboard ordered 20 days ago & still waiting for delivery) Working with this keyboard is rather frustrating and my sweetheart had tried hard to help. Even let me borrow his laptop. He walked past and made some comment about going out for a few minutes, I flipped my hand in acknowledgement and kept working. When he came back home, the sweet man brought me a gift wrapped box of my all time favorite orange filled chocolate creams! Sure takes the pain of work away and quickly removed the frown from my face! No, I won't share! Well, I will share my chocolates, but not the man :)

    1. Now there is a great chocolate story. I hope you have at least some left, because orange filled chocolate creams are incredible! Plus, I am holding out my hand for a few!

  2. I am mostly a peanut butter and chocolate kind of gal, or raspberry and chocolate. My chocolate favorite has already been published on Squidoo (Ohio State Brutus Buckeyes Peanut Butter Candy Recipe.) For as far back as I can remember, I've been eating these Buckeye candies, making them, or buying them!
