Fall is in the air. We are still vacillating between the hot weather, cooler fall days and the occasional moments of wet. Into all of this change my world has been very busy (writing on book five, updating website and day job). I have neglected my blog followers and I apologize.
Recently some of my writer friends and I got into a conversation about chocolate. Mmmm. Just about everybody has a favorite kind or way to eat it. Perhaps it is the setting that makes the perfect chocolate moment. Some are purists with specific preferences while others are unabashedly lovers of the treat.
Into this I drop. Now I love chocolate. There have been times since I had to go cold-turkey that I would wake up at night tasting it. (The brain is a tricky organ.) Just because chocolate is a trigger food for my body to get mad at me doesn’t mean that I don’t have my favorites. I love Frango Mints. I didn’t realize that many people don’t know what I am talking about. They are sold at Macys in my region (Pacific Northwest) and I know there are Macys stores all over the place so I assumed.. well I was wrong. Apparently not all Macys stores are created equal in the candy department and that is a tragedy for everyone outside of the PNW.
I also loved chocolate covered caramels, Skor bars and had a lovely recipe for chocolate nut clusters but Frangos… were my absolute favorite.
How does this tie into fall? Well, when this conversation with my fellow authors happened we discussed sending Frangos to them. Unfortunately it needs to be cooler weather to make sure that the delectably yummy goodies wouldn’t turn to a mushy mess. I mean, I remember them trying to melt in my fingers and believe me they never stayed in my fingers more than the time it took to take a savoring bite.
