Am I using Valentine's Day as an excuse to buy chocolate? Nope, I buy it pretty much every week. Not enough to fill all three of these vintage candy dishes, but at least one bag. I love to have a piece after supper. It's just enough to take the edge off of wanting to eat the entire bag. I keep the dishes on the buffet in the dining room. That way we have to make an effort to get up and get a piece. If they were in the living room, it'd be too easy.
These Dove raspberry chocolates call out to me. I love raspberry anything, and black raspberry ice cream is my favorite! But when you add chocolate to raspberry I swoon.
Our nieces love to stop by during the holidays because they know that Auntie kicks her chocolates up a notch. I either make my own or buy a few different kinds. I may make some chocolate covered pretzels tomorrow night for Valentine's Day (if I have the time).
They are calling for a couple of inches of snow late tomorrow night - but I'll believe it when I see it. Our local weather stations predicted 3-6 inches during the Nor'easter. We barely got a dusting!
So tell me, what's your favorite candy?
