Chocolate, Shoes and Sex!

Carnival of the Recipes: Chocolate!





(Chocolate Swimsuit for 2006: It will be all the rage this summer)
Will you be wearing it?



There really is a link between sex and chocolate. I would agree! I would also have to add to that. For me it is chocolate, shoes and sex. Or is it chocolate plus shoes equals sex or does chcolate and shoes lead to sex? Could be any combination of chocolate, shoes and sex. It all works for me. Valentines day is soon to be upon us and so I have even more opportunity to eat chocolate and buy shoes. Where is the sex? Seems to be elusive right now. But such is life. I am content with chocolate and shoes. I see a large box of Godiva in my immediate future for Valentine's day. As usual I will be buying it myself , wishing that indeed it was a gift that someone had actually given me. Maybe one day in the near, next century I will know the joy of having a gift given to me on Valentine's Day. It gets old buying flowers for yourself and having them delivered to the office with a card that says, "From you know who."

Yes, I have done that. On more than one occassion. The last time was about 3 years ago. It gets very hard to see all those flowers that all my coworkers get from their husbands or boyfriends on Valentine's Day. Some years it had been so downright depressing that I had no choice but to buy some flowers for myself from a "mystery admirer." It made me feel special. At least in the office. My office would become all the "buzz." Who did she get flowers from? Did you know she was dating anyone? What did the card say? I would smile and say little to nothing. I would just bask in the glow that my imaginary significant other provided me that day. I would let the flowers stay in the office about 2 days then take them home. I love flowers so any occasion to buy flowers works for me as well. Flowers work better than the boyfriend in a box.

Chocolate started off with bad beginnings. It was not loved and cherished as it is today.
Early on, in France, chocolate was considered a "barbarous and noxious drug," until the French court embraced it after the Paris faculty of medicine approved it as a beneficial potion.

In 1569, Pope Pius V considered cocoa liquid so vile tasting that he declared the drinking of it would not break the communion fast.

Back then, most chocolate was consumed, and appreciated, in liquid form. The Aztec king Montezuma drank liquid chocolate all day to enhance his libido.

Studies have shown that dark chocolate helps prevent heart disease and cancer. It has also been shown to improve mood by boosting the brain chemical serotonin, much like Prozac and its many mood-enhancing clones.

Some consider chocolate an effective diet food, claiming that a chunk of chocolate taken before meals diminishes one's appetite.

And, lest we forget, on Feb. 14, 1929 Al Capone's gang gunned down seven members of Bugs Moran's gang in Chicago in what is remembered as "The St. Valentine's Day Massacre." It had nothing to do with chocolate.
I have been a chocolaholic from the early age of 12. I have always loved chocolate. Godiva and Dove are the ones I love the most. I remember baking all sorts of chocolate things to eat in middle school and high school. dirty Fila has inherited that love of chocolate as well.

Here is my most decadent recipe for brownies. Not just any brownie but a chocolate brownie. Not just chocolate, but extreme chocolate. Enjoy! It is chocolate heaven on earth!


Extreme Chocolate Brownies

Ingredients:


One box of your favorite brownie mix


3 extra large Hershey Bars (the oversized bars)


Mix the brownie mix according to the directions on the package. Pour 1/2 the brownie mix in your baking pan. Now, place all three extra large chocolate bars on top of the 1/2 brownie mixture-whole. Just lay them right on top of the 1/2 brownie mixture. Then cover the chocolate bars with the rest of the brownie mix and bake according to the directions on the package. Cool. Then sit back and enjoy extreme chocolate brownie heaven!





Enjoy the Godiva Chocolate Martini.

Yummy! You can use this to wash down the extreme chocolate brownie.

1 1/2 shots Godiva® chocolate liqueur
1 1/2 shots creme de cacao
1/2 shot vodka
2 1/2 shots half-and-half

Mix all ingredients in a shaker with ice, shake and pour into a chilled cocktail glass.

For those wanting "adult" chocolate, I have found this site: Chocolate Fantasies. They actually make erotic chocolate in the shapes of certain body parts. Very interesting! They even have chocolate shoes in the fetish chocolate section, right under the chocolate handcuffs.




What I do is kick them in the pants with a diamond buckled shoe!
