What’s Your Chocolate?

Chocolate. Mmm. Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, Swiss chocolate, white chocolate, creamy chocolate store truffles with maybe some hazelnut tweaking the mix, or, well, you get the picture. Chocolate is the stuff of dreams, of cravings, of smooth textures and delicious enticing wrappings. (I can’t help myself!)

Today chocolate takes over my blog in a yummy Blog Hop Hosted by Brinda Berry over on her space. The hop is focused on chocolate but even though I can think of a lot of things to do with chocolate, none of them involve hopping. Chocolate chip cookies, homemade by yours truly when the urge just can’t be ignored any longer, with dark chocolate chips and lovely walnut halves–I never chop them as the recipe suggests–or what about a decadent hazelnut hot chocolate made in the Keurig to which we added a Terry’s Orange Chocolate slice one Christmas at my daughter’s house…oh I must stop and tell you about this blog hop thing.

Well I’ve never done a blog hop. (Sip, sip of my morning hot chocolate.) But I sure have tasted wonderful chocolate. Anyhow, I found on Linky  Tools the answer to my question.

What is a blog hop?

A blog hop is a linky list that is SHARED ON MULTIPLE BLOGS.
When several blogs put the same linky list code on their blog, the
exact same list appears on each blog.

Blog visitors can submit their entries on any blog that contains the list.
The entries will appear on each blog where the list resides.

Blog readers see the same list on each blog, and can “HOP” from blog
to blog seeing the same list of links to follow: BLOG HOP!

So here we go to get the long list of other blogs on the hop this morning.  What’s Your Chocolate? Blog Hop.

The only wrinkle seems to be with WordPress free blogs.  The code Linky Tools supplies will not work. Lucky me, I have that version of WordPress. (This experience may be the shove I need to upgrade.) So I have put Brinda’s link above and hope that will take you all over the chocolate blogoshere. For my part, I’m off to the chocolate store!

Elaine Cougler’s regular blog post will appear on Wednesday as usual.

  1. Hi Elaine .. am I first – well I can’t comment on embedded comments in Blogger – so that’s a pain – but I’ve learnt to live with it for the time being .. there are glitches around with all blogs.

    Anyway your first para lists all my favourite chocolates … then of course I remember others … like Caramac – don’t think you’d have it in north America …

    Now you know what a blog hop is .. cheers Hilary


  2. What about chocolate bunnies? Would that involve hopping? [sorry]

    FWIW, I’ve found WordPress.com better than Blogger, but it’s better still to have WordPress on a site where I can control everything.


  3. Your cookies do sound delicious but I would probably substitute pecans for the walnuts. But my favourite and the chocolate I eat most of the time is 85% organic dark chocolate. I eat one strip almost every night after dinner – it’s my dessert. I do put cocoa in my smoothies, too.


    • That’s what I like about Swiss chocolate, the texture. I remember one year after I had been really really good at sticking to healthy foods leading up to Christmas, I bought myself some Belgian truffles, wrapped them up, labelled them for me from Santa, and watched my family drool as I sampled them and they tried to guess where the gift had come from. Finally, I let them in on the secret that I had bought my own Christmas gift. I also shared.


  4. One of my favourite treats is to have a cafe mocha with peppermint hot chocolate. Love it! And I’m a chocolate and nuts person, not so big on creamy fillings, but give me nuts and mmmmmmmmmmmmm.

    We should give ourselves a truffle for doing our daily word count.


  5. I miss walnuts and hazelnuts now that I found I’m allergic, but almonds and pecans make delicious substitutes in recipes. Try toasted pecans in your cookies. Yum! I can’t believe I’ve been so stuck in my writing this week that I missed several days of chocolate blog hops. I love chocolate. Dark chocolate in particular. How about dark chocolate brownies? Or, one of my favs, homemade hot chocolate where you can choose how much chocolate and how much sweet. mmm. I think we’d better stop here!


  6. Hi,
    Your picture made me hungry for chocolates. I don’t usually have a hunger for chocolates, but just reading this gave me an appetite for chocolates.
    Thanks for explaining blog hopping. It sounds interesting.
