Happy National Chocolate Day!

I think this is actually a UK food holiday, but since it's chocolate and I used to live in the UK, I'mma claim it anyway. I mean, chocolate. Is there anything better than the perfect chocolate anything? I don't think so.

My mom used to have this book of all these little one-page comics about being a chocoholic, and for a while it was my favorite book. Mom made chocolate cake for most of our birthdays. Brownies are one of my favorite things ever*. When I had my first job ever, I'd go each payday and get three Godiva truffles from the shop and feel super adult about everything. I crave British chocolate** like my life depends on it; American chocolate doesn't taste the same.

What I'm saying is, I really love chocolate, you guys.

So I made a board just to celebrate this wonderment! Check it out!

*The fudgy kind, not the cakey kind--if I wanted cakey, I'd eat cake. Does anyone else notice that box-brownies have been getting less fudgey? I need to start making them from scratch again. And figure out a really good GF one so I don't have to, like, schedule it and mealplan around the breach in the diet.
**If anyone in the UK wants to send me some Double Decker or Crunchie or Kinder bars, I mean, I'm totally up for it...
