My name is Mzz Thang and I'm a chocoholic (giggle).
Ahhh...Chocolate. It's my favorite food. I have a passion for chocolate that far exceeds a simple love of sweetness. In fact, I personally believe that chocolate should be in it's own food group. It's the everyday "feel good" food (although you may not feel too good if you eat too much of it), and has been linked to maintaining a healthy heart. Who knew?
Anyway, this months artisan collage is all about chocolate: its color, taste, aroma, etc. This is but a small sampling of some of my favorite handcrafted chocolate pieces. Support these fine artisans and enjoy!
