The fountain of Youth ~ Chocolate

Okay, so it’s not really the fountain of youth, but chocolate always makes me think of being a kid so I was hoping they were connected. Here are a couple of recipes to get us in the mood for Joy’s upcoming Chocolate round-up.

Mmmm… the Chocolate Oatmeal Logs sound very yummy!
I’m definitely going to try them- especially because my son is allergic to eggs and so he can enjoy this treat too!
Thanks for the recipe!

I have never been a huge fan of chocolate something rather a foreign concept to many women. The kids just introduced me to Michel Cluizel chocolate and oh my gosh is that ever good. I think I will be doing a bit more experimenting with chocolate. Thanks for the recipes!
