Christmas Chocolate

Something I have always loved about the holiday is chocolate. Chocolate that I don't get any other time of the year. My mom makes the best fudge....but only at Christmas. Denny always bought a box of chocolate creamed centers....only at Christmas. Dad or Den always gets me a box of chocolate covered cherries....only at Christmas.

It's funny. I don't even think about or crave these chocolates any other time of the year. But Christmas comes out!

For 4 Christmas's now I haven't had Mom's fudge or the chocolate creamed centers, but this year I got a box of chocolate covered cherries! Dark ones that is....Dad and I only like the dark! Today I opened the box, so glad my luggage made it fine back home, I could have eaten 4 or 5 at once but I demonstrated a little self control and only had one....that is until I went back an hour later and had another. Oh man. So addictive! Who in the world ever dreamed up these things!

Jamaica is known for its jerk sauce and blue mountain coffee, not chocolate! Growing up in Pennsylvania just gives you a taste for chocolate. I remember as a little girl going to Hershey and drooling over the chocolate vats you once could get so close to. I loved the hershey kiss lampposts that lined the streets. After the factory tour you would receive a chocolate bar. Oh man that used to be the highlight of the trip. Just love Hershey PA. I hope it's not too far from VFCC once Den is on loan to the school. I just may have to make more than one trip to check out the chocolate town! Can't wait!
