Chocolate Covered Raisins Day
Oh yes, magic to my taste buds! Today is March 24th and that means it's National Chocolate Covered Raisins Day. I have this item on my grocery list right now and I'm not kidding. I absolutely love Chocolate Covered Raisins and if I ever go to the movies, this is one sweet treat that goes with me. Yes.... I'm one of those people who will take their own candy to the movies instead of buying it there. Why? Because it's wayyyyy to expensive! It's double the price. So.... I get my own at the grocery store or Wal-Mart and take it in my pocketbook. At home, when ever we plan a movie night, this is the treats that sits between me and my hubby throughout the movie. Not popcorn but chocolate covered raisins. I also keep a pretty little glass jar on my desk that is full of chocolate covered raisins. Chocolate Covered Raisin Cake When you love chocolate covered raisins you become very inventive over ways that you can eat it. I like to bake a Chocolate Carrot Cake. Use an old fashion carrot cake recipe that has raisins in it (carrots, raisins, nuts) except use a chocolate cake mix. Use chocolate icing instead of creamcheese icing. Then sprinkle chocolate covered raising on the top for decorations. One of these days I'm going to take a picture of it and add it to my website with the made from scratch recipe. At least thats the plan. hahaha! Let's see how long it will take me to get that done.

I AM NOT OVERWEIGHT. I AM CHOCOLATE-ENRICHED. CHOCOLATE IS CHEAPER THAN THERAPY, AND YOU DON'T NEED AN APPOINTMENT. IF IT AIN'T CHOCOLATE, IT AIN'T BREAKFAST! CHOCOLATE MILK: THE POOR MAN'S CHAMPAGNE.
