Southern Chocolate Gravy

Calling all chocoholics!

Just the mention of chocolate can conjure up images of luscious sweetness slowly melting in our mouths. While chocolate has been around for thousands of years, there is a renewed interest in high-quality, handmade chocolates. Local shops are popping up across the state, and chocolate makes a wonderful gift for those hard-to-buy-for loved ones or as a house-warming gift.

If you have chocoholics in your family, treat them to one of our chocolate recipes over the holidays.
