5 Chocolate Friday Favorites for Thanksgiving

Chocolate Pumpkin Pie is the perfect way to add a little chocolate to your Thanksgiving celebration.

There are no words to describe this Double Chocolate Pecan Pie. I would love a piece right now. 

This Pumpkin Pie White Hot Chocolate  is perfect not only for Thanksgiving but for all of the chilly days we have to look forward to this winter. 


Chocolate Perfection is a great documentary for chocoholics to watch while resting and relaxing after the big Thanksgiving meal.

5 Chocolate Friday Favorites

Good morning!

Here are my 5 favorite chocolate finds this week. 

Country Cleaver

Double Chocolate Bread from Baked Bakery NYC.

Interesting Article

Archeologists have discovered  cocoa in 900 year old pottery in South America, which means that the people were drinking it 1500 years before the people of Mexico. 


Love this cute shirt.

Dark Chocolate Atole

As the weather get warmer a cup of hot chocolate in the morning or before bed is one of my favorite beverages. This chocolate atole is a wonderful addition to your drinking chocolate repertoire because it "kicks it up a notch" with a little spice and a little rum. The consistency is a bit like pudding because of the cornmeal. I think you will love it on a cool Fall or winter evening. 

Dark Chocolate Atole 

Recipe from Katherine Clapner of Dude, Sweet Chocolate

1/2 cup of fine ground cornmeal
21/2 cups of whole milk
21/2 cups of water
1 teaspoon Saigon cinnamon
5 tablespoons cane sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon of dark rum
1 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons Valrhona cocoa powder
6 ounces Valrhona Equatorial chocolate
Whipped Cream

Combine the corn meal, milk water, Cinnamon, sugar, vanilla and rum in a blender and blend the mixture until smooth.
Transfer the mixture to a medium saucepan and add the salt and cocoa powder. Bring to a boil over medium heat whisking constantly. Reduce heat to low and cook until the mixture thickens slightly, then cook for an additional 5 minutes. Add chocolate and whisk until melted.

Serve with whipped cream and enjoy.
