We Should Cocoa – the October Challenge
What a fantastic party we had to celebrate We Should Cocoa’s first anniversary – I’m still staggering from the cake overload! Thanks to all who brought along such delicious and decedent offerings, they were all fabulous. And thank you to Chele for doing a great round-up.
Now the nights are drawing in and the chilly season will soon be upon us. What better way to fire up our sluggish post party metabolisms than with chilli. It is, after all, the chilli season. I know some of you love chocolate and chilli and I know some of you have never tried the combination, so now is the time to really let your imaginations run wild. Something savoury, something sweet? You decide.
Both the Mayans and Aztecs of central America added chilli to their chocolate drink and a sort of porridge they made from cocoa and ground maize. For them, chocolate was a food of the gods – at least we all agree on that.
Just a quick reminder that you need to e-mail us with a picture and a link to your post by the 25th of the month – a few have forgotten this. Unless we happen to remember seeing your post, it won’t get included in the round-up, which would be rather sad. You may want to have a look here for a reminder of the rules.
