Top 50 Chocolate Blogs

If you're reading this blog, you're bound to love chocolate. Elizabeth Wright at EducationDegrees.com has put together a great list of the Top 50 Chocolate Blogs. Wonderful Compilation! One correction. Elizabeth uses the term Chocolatier.. the chocolate blog enthusiasts are not all chocolatiers, although they may be 'chocolateers'.

Thanks, Elizabeth, for including DyingforChocolate.com

She's divided the list into Top Chocolate Blogs by a Group, Top Chocolate Blogs by a Reviewer, Top Chocolate Blogs by an Individual, Top Chocolate Plus Blogs, Top Chocolate Candy Blogs, Top Other Chocolate Blogs.

Chocolate is not only nutritious and great tasting, it's full of antioxidants which help to fight cancer and other aging disease conditions.

My site is all about chocolate too! We have just posted some great stuff about the history of chocolate, chocolate cigars, truffles and how to make it all yourself. http://www.thechocolatebook.com/

Here is an excerpt:

When a baby is born people want to celebrate. They gather their friends and relatives together and joyously exclaim that a new child is born to a family. In the past, when smoking was more common real cigars were handed out to the men to celebrate the occasion. The healthier and yummier option to celebrate is to have a chocolate cigar. The Hershey chocolate company recognized that there might be some interest in chocolate cigars and in 1895 they began manufacturing them. They were very popular with men, women, and children. The chocolate cigars were debuted with chocolate cigarettes and were marketed to women because they were an alternative to cigars. They were called Hershey’s Vassar Gems and Smart Set Cigarettes.

I'm not shooting for a spot on the list (I'm a writer, not a professional baker), but I have posted a great brownie recipe.

Whether you are cooking for your sweetheart or your son's soccer team, any dish made with chocolate will be a surefire hit. Chocolate's extraordinary flavor adds richness and depth to both sweet and savory dishes, from sumptuous cake to light-as-air mousse to exotic Mexican molé sauce.

Gluten Free Products said...

Surprisingly, though, dark chocolate is a different story. Most people don't know about the many health benefits of dark chocolate and they should because it can prove to be a blessed addition to any weight loss process.
