Pre-Holiday Wine and Chocolate

Every fall, I think I have time to get together a wine and chocolate afternoon or evening with friends so that we get in a few hours to relax before the holiday craziness starts. I never make it, but I don’t give up the dream! This year, my confidence grew as I even bought a bottle of chocolate red wine in Walla Walla for the occasion.

A few weeks ago, I put today on the calendar. Send out some invites, made a few calls. (Would have made more, but my house is pint-sized). Last night, I rummaged through chocolate recipes and began preparing the options:

  • Chocolate covered strawberries – simply delicious
  • A new Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe – fabulous
  • Liquid Chocolate Cake – one of my favorite recipes, plus Bill’s hand-whipped cream
  • And a selection of cheeses
  • I thought about making nutella crepes and a chocolate cake (next time!)
It was a great afternoon. My desire to relax with friends came together! And I was so relaxed that I was ready for a nap – not because I was exhausted! FABULOUS!
