Today is the day!!!! So, September 16 is National Choose Your Chocolate Day, and I’m elated about the excuse to celebrate the world’s sweetest situation! What is the best chocolate that has ever touched your lips? I would say for me it’s a double chocolate warm brownie straight out of the oven, with pecans stacked on top. Since everybody has their favorite compliment to washing down the most incredible chocolate situation. And, evidently, this chocolate has been celebrated for thousands of years and has graced the tables of kings, presidents, celebrities and, now you and your family.
