O Chocolat!

What better way to cheer ourselves up on a cold grey Monday morning than with a sneaky peak at the beautiful creations to come out of our "O Chocolat!" event?

Our friends at Sara's Flowers and Tea's played host to our recent chocolate tasting and poetry UPLIFT and what a sweet treat it was! UPLIFTERS were in chocolate heaven as the sumptuous milk and dark delights inspired words and poems.

21 Ways to think about Chocolate
Sick and guilty, but it doesn’t last long.
After the first bite, those feelings have gone.

Walking in a wood of chocolate trees,
Floating through chocolate leaves.

Jonny Depp covered in chocolate – lick him clean!

Eat it, when you see it.
Dairy Milk, soft as silk.

Jolene  Jolene, I’ve just had some chocolate and I’ve turned green
I wish I‘d never touched that Cadbury’s Flake, Jolene

It’s a smoky French cafe on a rainy evening
With red wine and candle light

When I think of white chocolate
I think of Beyonce
Happy if it’s the right kind, money well spent
on dark chocolate, seventy per cent.
Or  even stronger, eighty one per cent,
solid heaven.
It makes me happy. Anytime, it’s a blessing.
I’m a driving instructor, and it’s perfect between lessons.
When I get to work, with a coffee...
When I get home, with a coffee...
Usually fat but happy of heart
I can’t stop eating it when I start.
A nice cow eating grass.
A dodecahedron.
Swimming in a chocolate sea,
Bitter, creamy, heavenly, happy.

I stand and wait for someone to eat
My thick smooth cover,
I lie on the tray for something to happen.
I wait and everyone eats me.
People are my best friend,
And I’m a chocolate treat.

Take a double choc chip muffin, remove the top, push some nice dark chocolate inside, put the lid back on, insert into the microwave for 15 seconds.  If you want, put some cream on. Eat with pleasure.
Steal into the pantry at 2 am and get a long-handled spoon, and have a dollop of choc and hazelnut spread and eat in the dark.

Milk chocolate biscuits crumbled onto ice-cream with maple syrup on top.

Digestives and honey layered on top of each other in a sandwich like manner.

I used to eat chocolate when I was sad but I do not do this anymore.
