Before your eyes glaze over at the sight of the sexy chocolate I’m about to throw down up in here, I want to alert you to the giveaway I’m hosting next week!

Are you drooling yet? I will leave you to Q-tipping the drool out of your keyboard and simply ask you this: What’s your favorite way to enjoy chocolate? (…or not, if you are so
