It's Chocolate Time!

Wow!  The New Year has arrived and have been busy putting away the Christmas cheer and getting ready to settle down for winter, if it ever comes here!  I know, for those who have had snow are probably tired of it.
I would like just a measurable amount to make the outside crisp, white and sparkle! It has been cold and windy, but no snow!

     Before I show you the chocolate, my thoughts and prayers are for those in Tucson. A sad day today for the family of Christina. The thought of saying good bye to one of your own, just breaks my heart.
I pray for the on going progress for Congresswomen Gabrielle Gifford.

Now, moving on to some rich,dark goodness!  I do a little catering on the side and would like to share with you some of my tables that I have done. To me, I need to "draw" them to me with the smell, then the eye catching table and then the taste of good chocolate.

The smaller fountain had Ranch Dressing!

Chocolate Covered Strawberries, Chocolate Pieces, Chocolate Covered Pretzels and Grapes.  My attempt on Edible Arrangements.

My first attempt in painting a mask

This event was at a Adoption Center for Animals.  I couldn't run the fountain because it was to windy.  We had chocolate flying everywhere!  They still were able to "play" in the fountain.

This event was held at our local mall for a Bridal Event. My first time with catering food.  We had a crab dip served in mini martini glasses.  Yup!  I always feed the mall plus people for the event since it is open to the public.

My Halloween food table.  My very 1st gingerbread house. Fake eyes and worms in water crystals (size of a grain of salt. When submersed in water, the crystals swell 3 times their size and feels like jelly)

Chocolate Fountain and the smaller one has homemade Caramel Sauce.  Didn't quite flow right. I do believe it was to thin.

1 of 3 awards that I have won!  I was soooooo happy!

This was my 2nd time doing the Wedding Event in our mall.

On each display, the boxes were on a lighted turntable.

And in each box of course, was BLING!!  Here in this pic Spicey Chicken Satay and Mini Dogs wrapped in Puff Pastry.  I do believe I served this at the event except the dogs were places with Coconut Shrimp.

In the very front, I had bubbles for the children to take with a blow bubbles in the mall.  It helped distract them from the chocolate!

My Spicey Chicken Satay with a Peanut Sauce and topped with Black Sesame Seeds and Dill

Bon Apetit!

You are so talented - whoa!

My husband and I are both drooling over the chocolate bouquets. It's all amazing, though.
