It’s already February, and with February comes Valentine’s Day, and with Valentine’s day comes……chocolate! Almost all of my desserts have chocolate in them-who can resist it’s dark, flavorful, intense flavor? And what sweetheart wouldn’t be wooed with a piece of good chocolate?
I like chocolate so well I thought we should devote a carnival completely to chocolate- of course, nourishing chocolate recipes. To keep things nourishing consider making your dessert whole grain, and for sure use natural, whole sweeteners (read my Guide to Natural Sweeteners for a start). It will take place the week of Valentine’s, so that anyone in need of a fresh idea for chocolate for Valentine’s day will have plenty of time to plan.
(A big thanks to everyone who shared their nourishing soup and stew recipes for our last carnival! They all sounded wonderful.)
Here’s the Low Down:
On February the 10th, I will post a carnival post, sharing a few thoughts on chocolate and my own recipe. Then it will be your turn! Post a chocolate recipe on your blog, include a link to my new carnival post, and then send me the info on your post. I will then update my post with links to your posts, so we can all share the chocolate love.
People without blogs are more than welcome to leave your recipes in the comment section (Please, please do share!) I will also mention your recipes in my post.
And yes, for those who either can’t or choose not to have chocolate, you can enter carob recipes. And yes, you can enter savory chocolate recipes (in fact, that would thrill me!)
See you then!
