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.
