Chocolate for Christmas
For me, Christmas and chocolate go hand in hand. As a kid, I'd get a big box of Godiva chocolates and enjoy them over the course of a year. They had to last until the next Christmas when, sure enough, Santa would bring me another box of Godiva. Playmobil and chocolate truffles, I could always count on getting both. This Christmas, my mother-in-law gave me an extra special treat from Fran's Chocolates, an enormous Calimyrna fig filled with dark chocolate ganache and dipped in chocolate. Over-the-top perfect!
