Welcome to Day #8 of Chocolate and Thankful Week, and Day #3 of Chocolate and Holiday Spirits Theme Week. It's wonderful to have a day dedicated to feeling grateful (and full). Happy Thanksgiving to all.
I'm enjoying two turkey, cranberry and pumpkin soup/dessert meals with family and friends today.
I started this morning with a miniature Chocolate Banquet Thanksgiving breakfast that included a chocsimile* of a milk chocolate "placesetting" turkey from Lake Champlain Chocolates (Burlington, VT); cranberry chocolates; and a small handful of tasty White Chocolate Pumpkin Pie Almonds from California Sungold (Oakhurst, CA).
The convincing-looking milk chocolate turkey tom was individually wrapped in a small plastic bag secured with a twist tie and seasonal pumpkin-colored ribbon enabling me to admire his composure in the past few days leading up to...the inevitable. There was no need to stuff this hollow turkey—each milk chocolate faux feather was fine as it was.
For adults, you might pair your chocolate Thanksgiving meal with a doll-sized portion of Wild Turkey, or your favorite American whiskey (or whisky, as you prefer).
*A chocsimile is a three-dimensional chocolate facsimile of a real person, place or thing.
