International Chocolate Day

Did you know today is International Chocolate Day?

I didn't until members of our Student Led Council came around giving out KitKats to everyone this afternoon.

So in honor of the day, I came home and made brownies.

Yum! If you need a chocolate fix, you can visit my cousin's blog White Turquoise Chocolate. Her post today is all about the dark stuff.

Hope you are having a terrific Tuesday in your corner of the world. Peace & blessings, Tammy

I stopped by because I missed you last week on Tea Tuesday. I was delighted to be able to catch up with your trip to Paris. And celebrating chocolate is always a good thing. I may even have to have some today, if I can find where I hid that last Hershey Kiss (grin).

I love Kit Kats, especially frozen! I had no idea about the Chocolate holiday, but that is right up my alley. :) Your brownies look lovely. I'm off to check out your cousin's blog. Have a fab day!

I forgot to mention (after reading about your new plants) that your heat is even more intense than ours. We are finally under 100 plus degrees F, but not by much. Yesterday was 99 and my garden is brown! Good luck with yours. I can relate to that kind of heat sickness, too.

Well I just have to celebrate also..what a wonderful excuses to have chocolate...why not everyday be Chocolate Day?

Serena said...

What a delicious day to celebrate ~ :)

Kit-Kats used to be my most favourite chocolate of all until, one day, I found something in one that shouldn't have been in there and I'd already eaten half the bar. I have never been able to eat a Kit-Kat since. :( I still LOVE chocolate though, particularly the Australian/UK Cadburys range which is different to the American Cadburys.

I'm off to check out the link...thanks.

Have a lovely day/evening,
Serena xo

KitKat is my favorite candy bar!! And brownies are my favorite homemade treat!

I'm sorry it's still so hot there! A brownie and a cold glass of milk is a brief consolation :(

Happy chocolate day!

Hi Tammy....Well my goodness. I had no idea it was International Choclate Day. No wonder I was hankering for chocolate gelato. Went out and got some, too. Ha! Hope your day tomorrow will be super. Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com

Hi Tammy,

Oh yeah! I did not know this and may go and bake some chocolate chip biscuits, with the chocolate buttons in the pantry.
Thanks for sharing and hope that you are having a lovely week

I think every day should be chocolate day, we all deserve a little sweet treat. Mine is two squares of the deliciously dark variety.

Happy Chocolate day!
As a fervent admirer and eater of chocolate I must honor the day and have a bite, don't you think :)
I am off to check your cousin's blog.

Ooooh! Those brownie look scrumtious. Well, they do have sugar free jello pudding at LuLu. If I happen to go there, I'll pick you some. They also have vanilla, butterscotch, lemon and pistachio.

International Chocolate Day... Sounds like a good day to me!! I have to ask - Did you eat the Kit Kat?? I know you prefer the dark chocolate... Your brownies look yummy, and I love the sunset!!

Thinking of you,
