Chocolate Everywhere !!!!!

My long time readers here may recall I'm the candy maker in the family. Both Easter and Christmas are huge production times around here and I've been elbow-deep in chocolate for days now.
Yesterday, we were out running errands and despite a shower and clean clothes, I swear I smelled of chocolate!!! I thought now would be a good time to remind y'all of the rules about Easter candy. (Yep, there ARE rules !!!)
Rules of Chocolate Easter Eggs
  • If you get melted chocolate all over your hands, you're eating it too slowly.
  • Chocolate covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.
  • Diet tip: Eat an Easter egg before each meal.
    It'll take the edge off your appetite, and that way you'll eat less.
  • If you can't eat all your chocolate, it will keep in the freezer. But if you can't eat all your chocolate, what's wrong with you?
  • If calories are an issue, store your chocolate on top of the fridge. Calories are afraid of heights, and they will jump out of the chocolate to protect themselves.
  • Money talks. Chocolate sings.
  • Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives make you look younger.
  • The problem: How to get two pounds of chocolate eggs home from the store in a hot car.
    The solution: Eat the eggs in the car park.
  • Why is there no such organization as Chocoholics Anonymous?
    Because no one wants to quit.
Enjoy your chocolate this week !!!
