Rockin’ the Chocolates

OK. I know. The Stone Bank has almost nothing to do with chocolate. But, it’s Day 16 on National Blog Posting Month and I want to talk about chocolate.

Why? Because in some odd twist of fate, I received a box of gorgeous chocolates on the first day of NaBloPoMo — and I promised myself not to finish them, until month’s end. Wish me luck.

Excellent chocolate. Beautiful chocolate.

Chocolate so gorgeous, a person may be reluctant to indulge. For a while , at least.

These chocolates are as decadent as they are beautiful. Of course, Christopher Elbow has a website.

We also have some great chocolate-makers in North Dakota. Widman’s is the real home of chocolate-covered potato chips. Red River Valley grown potatoes dipped in chocolate — dark, milk, white and peanut butter. Don’t waste your time on (Johnny-come-lately) Lay’s, get the real thing from a fourth-generation family business.

Look. Mmm. Widman’s never disappoints.

Do you have a favorite chocolate shop? Where is it and what is your chocolate of choice?

Thanks to my friend Karen for the wonderful chocolates. I am savoring every single one. And I vow to not finish the box until the end of NaBloPoMo!
