It was a friday to remember indeed. And for chocolate lovers like me, it was like Oscar Night - Glamour, Glitz, Sensationalism etc. And no - I'm not talking about the people attending, though everyone looked really great! I'm talking about all the dressed up fancy chocolate we had!
It was my neighbor Renee's 6th Annual Chocolate Potluck party! Tell me about it - how glad am I to be living in this neighborhood! This was actually my first year of attending her party. And from now on, I'm going to block her party date every year - no traveling, no meeting anyone else. All I want to be is here.
Here's what the party is all about - everyone who shows up brings something that is 'Chocolatey'. Good enough for me. But, wait it gets better - no husbands, no kids - just women and their chocolate! Hallelujah!
So, I took my 'Chocolate Dipped Potato Chips' and also baked a Chocolate Shortbread and was on my way. My friend Deepi joined me too -she is a big chocolate fan like me and I invited her along and we were like two little toddlers let loose on candyland!
Don't you all want to see just how much fun we all had! Here are the sugar high pics..enjoy!
Starting off with some chocolate fudge -
These were little chocolate bars with a layer of luscious caramel oozing out from the middle...
Some chocolate dipped chocolate biscuits.
These were little chocolate, marshmallows, caramel and pecan bars - Don't know what its called -but do know it tastes great!
This was a chocolate pie - really great soft chocolate inside. Someone had picked this up from Marie Callender's. I'm going there next time to get this.
This was my own Chocolate chip shortbread- buttery and crisp.
These were little chocolate brownies - covered in a smooth shining ganache and topped off with a piece of pecan!
This I think, was a Mississippi Mud Pie. And it tasted great - I still have a small piece left with me and I'm savoring it to the end!
More awesome chocolate fudge!
Some fresh chocolate dippes strawberries from Godiva!
Here are my Chocolate Dipped Potato Chips - and this time I drizzled some white chocolate on top too.
These did help a lot in between all the sweet stuff! Some crackers and cheese.
And some apples and dip!
And a veggies dip tray! I had so many of these carrots...
Of course, you need something to drink it all down with - and what better than Chocolate wine!
How thoughtful of the host to have some cold milk with all the chocolate - of course a few sips of milk with a few sips of wine!
And someone also got Hot Chocolate mix!
These brownies were great - and just in case you need an extra sprinkle of sweetness - there's some powdered sugar!
This was the bomb - a super chocolate mousse cake! Cream and delicious!
Another super tasting chocolate cake!
Delicious Chocolate Bundt cake.
Chocolate, Nuts, caramel bars!
More pretty choco-nut brownies!
Here's the spread. Just one side of it though - there were more on the other counters!
Its been three days but I'm still kind of giddy with all this! But now, I'm looking forward for the next one!
Enjoy. Peace out!
