The Twelve Days of Chocmas (Day Eight)

Happy New Year! Did you get up to something fantastical last night to see in the new year in true celebratory fashion? I had a quiet night in with the Mr and the dog – away from the crowds, the drunks and the madness.

On the eighth day of Chocmas,

my true love sent to me

Eight choc mint balls,

Seven m & m’s,

Six chocolate peanuts,

Five giant buttons,

Four choc rochers,

Three lindt balls,

Two golden roughs,

And a tasty minted pattie.

And with that we’re back to my favourite combination of chocolate and mint. The only thing I don’t really like about these choc-mint balls is their colour – I wish their shells were a deeper, darker green … By the way, have you also noticed that all the chocolates we’ve been feasting on during Chocmas have been round in shape?

PS. On this first day of 2011 I hope you find yourself happy, healthy and surrounded by all you love most. Do you have grand plans to make changes in your life this year? I do, and I’m super excited at getting started on all the things I want to achieve … If all things go according to plan, my year will be filled with writing, travelling and dreaming … How about you?

      Hi Erika – I’m really excited about the possibilities and opportunities of this year too! It’s going to be fantastic!! 🙂

      1/1/11 was surely an auspicious date to wish away! I know I sent a wish or two of my own out into the world …

    Finding out that chocolate, especially dark chocolate, had health benefits was the best news of the century.

      Hi Jan – I know … thank goodness for the health benefits of dark chocolate … it just gives us an extra incentive to indulge! 🙂

    I have now officially given up chocolate until … well, just until 🙂 So I shall get my kicks here. Have a wonderful 2011!! It’s going to be a good year if we let it be, I reckon!

      Hi Kiersty – Oh my … giving up chocolate? While I can’t say I completely understand such a commitment, I wish you the very best of luck in resisting temptation! 🙂

      I agree with your thoughts about 2011, it’s going to be the best year yet (I just know it!!).
