Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Chocolate-Covered ANYTHING!


It is well known that chocolate goes with or on just about everything whether you melt, dip or drizzle. If you are unsure or have some kind of questionable combination, then go ahead and give it a try. You can always scrape off & eat the chocolate! *smile*

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.” 
- Charles M. Schulz

December 16 is...

National Chocolate-Covered ANYTHING Day!

http://hellogiggles.com/happy-national-chocolate-covered-anything-day

Make anything ho-hum into something yum-yum! Just clothe it in chocolate...strawberries, bananas, pretzels, wafers, potato chips, peanuts, even bacon (Hey! Bacon Me Crazy!) While there just might be something that is not enhanced by chocolate, the point of this day is not to find out what won't go with chocolate but to explore and discover new ways to dress up anything with chocolate. You may even be one who likes the Chocolate with a Unique Crunch! Go ahead and experiment! Melt the chocolate, make a ganache, top with chocolate sprinkles. What do you have to lose?

Ready for Chocolate with a Unique Crunch?


How to Celebrate...

If you don’t have access to a chocolate fountain, you can still have some chocolate dipping fun. Look up melted chocolate recipes and instructions and gather your favorite foods to dip in chocolate. Make it healthy and dip strawberries, pineapple spears, or really any fruit. Or go decadent and dip marshmallows, cookies, and cakes. You can really dip almost anything in chocolate and it will be delicious.
