Earlier this week I posed the question: What Make You Joyful?  If you haven’t had a chance to read the comments section, please do! They are excellent: insightful, encouraging, compassionate, and creative. I really felt like, “Hey! What great advice! We’re in this thing together! “ Please feel free to keep the conversation going.
One of the more light-hearted things mentioned was the helpfulness of chocolate in the life of a MOM. Ain’t that the truth? Just a few bites after lunch is the perfect taste of sweetness and an excellent pick-me-up. Not to mention what it does to your brain. I’m sure it must do something positive.
In case you didn’t know, it’s good for you, too. Some of the health benefits of dark chocolate  specifically are that it can lower blood pressure and is high in antioxidants which I hear are good for you. ‘Nuf said. As if you needed a reason….
In honor of the great conversation  we had about being joyful moms, I thought I would host a little chocolate party. Whoo hoo! Here’s how to participate:
That was easy, wasn’t it? I’ll leave this post up at the top until Sunday night for easy reference and to help support all those chocolate habits of yours. Then, Monday morning I’ll announce one winner of a special chocolate giveaway – at least enough to stuff a flat rate envelope. Winner will be selected at random. All decisions of the judges are final.
My sister warns me of the dangers of sending chocolate in summertime. If you would prefer an envelope of Pez (Yuck!) and Twizzlers, let me know on Monday!
To get us started, here’s the Chocolate Cheesecake I made for my birthday, from the Pillsbury Complete Cookbook :
