I'm no Willie W0nka...

But for the sake of "salty chocolate" day at school, I'll give it my best shot.




This recipe can be found here-from the Whimsical Princess. I stumbled across it before Easter- she makes hers into peanut butter eggs. There's also some business about putting the peanut butter balls on a skewer to get the proper coating- no holes- make a lovely candy thing. I preferred to roll them around in chocolate and pick them up with a spoon and a fork salad serving style.

I may have erred in my chocolate- I like both dark and semi-sweet chocolate. When they're together and I can taste them both I am happy. I combined a bag of semi-sweet morsels and a bag of dark chocolate morsels when I melted it all together. Either others will feel the way I do or they will hate them because it has the kind they don't like in it.

Tomorrow is the 1st Annual Salty Chocolate Day (as declared by me) for the staff at school.

I wanted to call it PMS day but there are 2 men in the building and that would be inappropriate.

Apparently all you really have to do to "declare a day" is put a note in everyone's mailbox telling them that if they want to eat chocolate on that day they should bring some to share. I'm hoping to start a long-standing, possibly daily, tradition.

Also- I didn't want my ass to grow on homemade reese cups alone. My butt cheeks prefer a variety.

Can I come for salty chocolate day? It sounds like it would be my favoritest day of the year!

Sigh. Those bon bons are my fave - but we are only allowed to have them at Christmas! Of course, we start making them right after Thanksgiving and don't stop until New Year's...

In 1984 (I can place the exact year because I was pregnant at the time) we had the First Annual Choc-Off at my office. Everyone brought a homemade chocolate concoction of some kind. Unfortunately the person selected to be the judge was not a big fan of chocolate (duh) so he chose chocolate-dipped strawberries as the winner. (duh) I never thought I could get full of chocolate but I did that day.

Enjoy your salty chocolate!
