Chocolate Christmas Gifts


My favorite Christmas gifts are chocolate. I have had a life long love affair with this tasty treat. I have never had a chocolate that I didnít like.

I received a lot of Christmas gifts last year, but my favorites were chocolate. My husband was right on the mark when he bought me a tin of Mrs. Fields cookies and brownies. I served them at a tea party I had on Christmas Eve.

I have given my little sister some wonderful chocolate Christmas gifts over the years. She loves chocolate as much as me. Last year, I sent her dessert bars in three flavors: chewy fudge, zesty lemon and raspberry blueberry currant.

My boss appreciates Christmas gifts from employees even though she doesnít celebrate Christmas. She likes chocolate, so I sent her Turtle Bars from Solomonís Gourmet Cookies. She is Jewish and these treats were certified Kosher by the Chicago Rabbinical Council.

I sent my cousins containers of brownies for Christmas gifts year before last. They are still talking about them. Each tin had a pound and a half of brownies that were the richest tasting brownies that they had ever eaten.

Finding exceptional chocolate recipes has been a challenge. I like to order from online companies when I am sending Christmas gifts because they do all of the shipping for me. For people in the same geographical area as me, I like to make chocolate creations in my own kitchen.

I have Christmas gifts on my mind starting in late October. I make lists of who I want to give chocolate gifts to and what they might like. I have made biscotti for neighbors a few times and I like the way it comes out.

Biscotto makes great Christmas gifts. A good biscotti recipe is not very sweet and compliments coffee or tea. I have found that chocolate biscotto pleases just about every palate! It seems like most of my friends enjoy biscotti with gourmet coffee.

My sister had a Christmas Day wedding about ten years ago. I decided that one of her Christmas gifts from me was going to be the groomís cake for her wedding. I made her a chocolate cheesecake with molded chocolate roses.

My niece shares my love of chocolate. She gave me a list of Christmas gifts she wanted the year she was ten and I just had to laugh out loud. She had listed twenty different things and half of them were chocolate!

I



hosted the family for Christmas dinner last year. After we opened our Christmas gifts, I served a gourmet chocolate mousse for dessert. I had worked perfecting it for the occasion and everyone loved it.

I do think that making extra Christmas gifts comes in handy when you have a lot of visitors during December. I make up a batch of chocolate Christmas candies and have them already wrapped to give to people that drop by. I think that maybe some people just drop by my house during the holidays because they know that they will get some yummy chocolate to eat.
