chocolate rain.

If you have never seen this video, you need to watch it, right now:

But that’s not what I’m here to write about. Today, I’d like to discuss my own personal “chocolate rain,” by which I mean that whenever it rains heavily, I want to sit at home and eat chocolate.

all for me.

It’s true, just the other day, it was pouring. I started to get hungry. I found a box of chocolates in the fridge (I usually have a couple of boxes around at any given time, for just such an occasion). I pulled out the box, sat down on the sofa in the sunroom (which is more like the rain room on days like that), opened the box, and just started biting. I say “biting” because I don’t finish any of the chocolates for the most part. I take a bite, and move on to something else. This eating habit transcends chocolates – it’s pretty much how I operate, which is one of the main reasons I started this whole “Small Indulgences” thing to begin with. I like variety. I like taking a small bite of something, then trying something else. I’m a dessert commitment phobe.

bite me.

I believe there are others out there just like me (I know my grandmom was one – she used to bite chocolates and put them back in the box), so I’m making it my goal to make one-bite chocolates. This way, one can eat more than one, not feel as bad, and still get the variety one seeks, without the commitment.

honey, i shrunk the chocolates.

PS: all the chocolates in the photos (with the exception of two which I purchased at Aunt Charlotte’s, the best chocolate shop ever) we made in a chocolates class I had, and thus can be recreated on demand. So, imagine them smaller, and yourself sampling them, and those rainy day blues will be gone before you know it.
