February Dish of the Month - CHOCOLATE

All righty then...

I totally forgot I was supposed to do this, so here we go...almost everyone likes it and almost no one is allergic to it.

The February dish of the month is chocolate. Dark, light, milk or white doesn't matter. Sweet or savory, doesn't matter. Hot or cold, doesn't matter. Small bite - like a See's candy - or full blown plated dessert, doesn't matter. The only thing that matters is that you eat chocolate in February. Oh, that and reporting back to about what you ate.

  1. Great choice, but why am I not surprised? :)

    I can feel the fat layers thickening already, but here goes...

    1. And just so all ya'll know what you're getting into with chocolate, check out this little 4 minute video

        Does fudge count? Husband insists that fudge is chocolate, but actually they are different, though fudge may contain chocolate. For example, if I ordered a hot fudge sundae and reviewed it here...would my carefully researched review be declared null and void? Or does this board accept all comers?...:)

          In, on, over, it makes no difference.

          Fudge is a legitimate entry and I am hoping someone - hell multiple someones - will post about hot fudge sundaes.

            Hmm....might need to check the grocery store tonight for fudge....I really don't want a hot fudge sundae, but I'll make the sacrifice for my fellow hounds. All in the name of science, of course.

          Great video and don't we LUV Mexican Chocolate.

        3. Speaking of which, has anybody eaten at a restaurant in South Park that I believe is called Eclipse?...if still around I recall perusing their menu which had a number of chocolate infused dishes.

            It's still around on 30th. I had dessert there at Christmas time. Love their space wasn't so wild about their desserts, they were good, but didn't transcend

              did one of the beer dinners there...had a really fun time, some dishes were fantastic, some were just ok. I still can't resist picking up their sea salt chocolate whenever I see it.

              Looks like I have some homework for February!

            2. Had some wonderful chocolate mousse at Waters on Monday! Creamy, light, rich, chocolatey. They don't have it every day but look at the calendar on the website.

              Also, that chocolate bread at Con Pane on Saturdays and Sundays is not to be missed. Belgian chocolate pieces in a light bread that is not too sweet.

              1. Comfort food time--chocolate pudding from Trader Joe's. Actual real deep rich chocolate flavor and good mouth feel. A large cut above other grocery varieties, and less expensive. I am having some right now!
