Chocolate Madness

I helped my Mom last night with her chocolate class for the Community College. It was a fun night, chocolates were made and eaten by all. During her talk about chocolate, we kept thinking of little things Mom does that are a bit quirky, but it's only because of her love for chocolate (and everything color coordinated!). Here are a few examples.
  • Mom once scarificed a chocolate easter bunny at my house because she wanted to make chocolate chip cookies, and couldn't find my chocolate chips. Sad part about that is I am my mother's daughter and I had about 20 pounds of chocolate chips on hand!
  • Mom buys holiday M&M's after each holiday,when they are 50% off, then separates the colors. Christmas ones are saved for Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's day. Easter candies are pastel and saved for baby showers......and the possibilities go on.
  • For my wedding she made about 20 pounds of periwinkle chocolates, yes periwinkle!
  • Mom knows what meat departments carry pink trays to match her pink and brown themed ribbons.
  • Mom can be counted on for fudge at every Christmas gathering......Yep, Mom is here, I see her fudge.
  • Mom loves a theme. She found a cute mug with dogs, then bought Scooby Doo crackers (shaped like dog bones) to dip in chocolate.
I could go on and on, but you get the idea. A few of you were interested in her chocolate class, but couldn't make it. She is willing to do a class for my friends if anyone wants to try to get together before Valentine's Day. Drop me a line and let me know if this sounds like fun.

I am so in for the chocolate class if we can make it work. I had actually looked into this one even before I knew it was your mom!! Let me know!

Does she travel? I would SO love to be a part of her chocolate class and the color coordination is right up my alley;o)

How lucky you are to have a great mother and one who makes chocolates!
