What's for dinner: Chocolate!

Honestly, I haven’t been in the kitchen much at all this week! I’ve been out and about supporting Ric Sosa (Sofia Santana “GiGi” de la Gorgonzola-Gonzalez) in his her fundraising efforts to become a debutante for the 10th Annual Atlanta Cotillion, benefiting AID Atlanta. So my dinners have consisted of cocktails and little nibbles (mostly chocolate!). Here’s the picture of my 'dinner' that I tweeted the other night…

Chocolate! (and cheese) for dinner
I have to say the chocolate covered strawberries and chocolate bark was delicious!

Speaking of that delicious chocolate, in the mist of all that mingling and socializing, I found 2 potential guest bloggers, one of which was the gentleman that created those cute little chocolate strawberry tuxedo men (and all the other chocolate goodies)! Who wouldn't want to learn how to make those for their next dinner party?!
