My friend Mary lives in Canada. Which is prob’ly a good thing.
We’re both Chocoholics, and if she lived any closer to me we’d most likely be at each others’ door every day sharing the dark sweets in its various forms.

That doesn’t stop us from still encouraging one another to indulge without the other one present. Thank goodness we know our limits. So we’re actually more apt to post pictures on each others’ Facebook wall. Most of the time.

Beautiful, lovely, delicious looking chocolate pictures.

My friend Del introduced me to this website, It’s a fun blog that tells you what foods to celebrate each day. Each. Day.

Seriously, Del?! I owe you the biggest plate of baked goods evvver.

So. Yeah. I finally checked out the blog and discovered that June 16th is National Fudge Day. How awesome is that?

I’m betting you can guess what I’ll be doing after the morning housecleaning, right?! Yup. I’m gonna try my hand at making fudge.

I’m so happy I could cry chocolate tears.

Now, I don’t have any photos of fudge since I haven’t made it yet, but I do have some great photos of my past delicious chocolate goodies.

I hope they inspire you to try your own hand at making some wonderful treats. Enjoy!

The Tiramisu at Bella Trattoria, Mission Inn in Riverside, CA. The coffee was also delectably delicious.

My date with Bocelli.

These donuts will be great when dipped in my ganache.
I made this batch when I wrote my blog review of “Julie & Julia.”

Homemade donuts. Yum!

I didn’t make this great Cheesecake, but it was the finishing touch to my Bunco at Tiffany’s party.

This great ganache was used as a topping
and also a soft chocolate candy.

I hope by now you’re drooling and making out your grocery list. Go on, now! It’s time to make some fudge!

And Frankly, My Dear… that’s all she wrote!
