Slice of Lime-Chocolate is a Girl's Best Friend

You may recall that back in October I received a 5 pound Hershey bar for my birthday. What you don't know is that I have not eaten a bite of it yet. You may find that hard to believe but it's true. I saved it because the gal pals who came to my party have a get together every February during which our entire menu consists of desserts. I promised to save the gigantic block of chocolate for this occasion. I will be making a couple of recipes with it, leaving some for the family, and who knows what with the remains (if there are any). I figured it was better to share this treasure, partly because shared fun is increased fun and partly because if I ate it all myself the 5 lbs of chocolate would turn into 10 lbs of belly, hips, and butt.

Before I start carving into this thing though I needed a few moments alone to savor it.
Mmmmm.....



Oooohhhh...



Aaaahhh...

That is the biggest chocolate bar I have ever seen! Have fun making wonderful desserts with it and remember to take pics of each dessert you make, I would like to see them.

Have a great day!

I just now finished making those pretzels with the Hershey kisses and red M&M's for Valentine's Day. Bon Appetit, Lime!

Yummmmmm!

Very cute pics and goodness me, I am glad that wasn't a 4 pound chocolate bar or it wouldn't have covered the girls!


Of course, after you eat a few bites....

What nice fun pictures Lime. Once I stopped laughing after reading what Susie said ... I think I have to second that. :)

A few years back I was at a party. That is the first place I ever saw a chocolate bar that large. It was insane. It was wonderful.

Enjoy your desert!

Gah. I love MY WIFE, but you tempt me endlessly, you vixen! Not enough to have you standing there half-naked. No. Now you throw a gigantic bar of chocolate into the mix. And you're... biting it... with those lips... I...

Gah.

I don't care much for chocolate. Guess it's a girl thing.

Now that is a dangerous amount of chocolate. I mean, you could snuggle up next to that and be happy for a long long time.
