It's National Chocolate Chip Day!!!

Happy Chocolate Chip Day! I know I said I wasn't going to be posting today however, when I told Marion it was National Chocolate Chip Day, she insisted (in a very kind way, of course:) that I celebrate the day with this recipe for Chocolate Walnut Tart. I just couldn't say no when she informed me that she spent an hour going through back issues of Taste of Home Magazine that she caveated at the community yard sale yesterday. (I'm sure she enjoyed every moment:)

So, Happy National Chocolate Chip Day from Marion. (click to enlarge)

This looks great. I Instead of the "semi sweet chocolate chips" I am going to use "Xocai Healthy Chocolate" and as a substitute. "Dark chocolate" is so healthy for you. It is full of "antioxidants" that our bodies need.

Fun! We sure had a lot of chocolate including various baked treats with chocolate chips on the 15th for my daughter's birthday.

Personally, yummy, I think everyday should be Chocolate Chip Cookie Day!!!

Neato! Channon.

I'm hoping to make it to Michigan for cherry season, Gloria. Wish me luck!!!

Can't wait, Janet. Do let me know when it's up:)

No Chocolate Chip Cookies means less Vitamin D for me, Barbara:)
