I love dark chocolate and nuts, so a full 1-pound box of chocolate combined with different nuts is pretty much heaven. The large quantity gave me the opportunity to experiment a bit. After trying the chocolates by themselves, I combined dark chocolate and toasted almonds with fresh rosemary (from my yard). Dark chocolate and peanuts were nibbled on with a dab of homemade strawberry/banana jam (bought earlier from a roadside produce stand). I have to say I liked both of these combinations.

Chocolate countdown: 10 more days until I eat my 1000th different chocolate in as many days.
