We all enjoy chocolate most of the time, but never so much as during the holiday season. During the holidays we tend to let down our guard and just enjoy as many of the festivities as possible. From pies to stocking stuffers, chocolate definitely has a place in the holiday celebrations.
We thought it would be nice to envision what it would be like to walk into a home filled with chocolate. Here’s our idea of what that experience would be like.
We arrive at grandmas house for Christmas, knowing it will be full of delectable surprises. We can already smell the scent of her candles ~ Layers of rich, fudgy cake laden with cocoa and covered with a light chocolate mousse frosting . . . smells just like the real thing.
As she greets us at the door, we see the overstuffed candy jar filled with various truffles ordered from her favorite candy shop. Down the hall is a tray of fudge, thick with lots of variety, ours for the taking. The advent calendar is up, with small wrapped chocolates peaking through the miniature doors.
When the hugs have all been passed around, Grandma leads us to the living room. A warm fire greets us along with a cast iron teapot filled with her gourmet hot chocolate. Bowls of whipped cream peep from her silver ice bucket, along with a big bowl of marshmallows. We sit and take in the lights twinkling from the Holiday tree.
I am surprised to see that grandma has chosen colorful foil wrapped chocolates as her ornaments this year. She ordered them from Germany, where the custom has always been to adorn the holiday tree with chocolate covered surprises.
The stockings are hung. Grandma is not too good at hiding surprises. I can clearly see small boxes of our favorite truffles peeking out of the white fur that trims our red stockings. Chocolate Santa’s line the bar with mini chocolate elves scattered between them.
After dinner Grandma brings out her famous chocolate mousse. We know that for Christmas morning she will be serving her homemade donuts, covered of course with chocolate gnache. Her five layer dark and white chocolate cake will be dessert for tomorrow night.
As we ready ourselves for bed, grandma sneaks to our rooms to pull down the covers. There she places a small chocolate mint, she swears will help us sleep, despite our excitement.
Grandmas house is always a delight. The care she takes to set out our favorite things warms our hearts and will always be a part of our happy holiday memories.
