Check out Chocolicious Recipes for Serious Chocolate Lovers

by Tracy Iseminger at

It’s almost Valentines Day and there are few things that are absolute essentials in my book for this holiday.  Chocolate and Roses.  While I can’t do much about delivering you roses, I certainly can give you plenty of chocolatey chocolicious recipes for inspiration.  

I went back through some of our most popular parties we’ve had here for Foodie Friends Friday and I found an abundance of fabulous recipes.  I picked out 12 of the very best chocolate recipes to share and posted them to  Check out the slide show and I dare you to not get hungry!

Hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
