Well!! Well !! What can I say about such a fun topic " Chocolate" !!!! I previously was on Live with Lee & Hayley show and I wrote a brand spankin' new recipe just for them. "Chocolate Love Jars" was a perfect fit for the show and this time of year. With picnics coming on strong and the love of The Lee & Hayley show and my love of chocolate I just knew this was what I had to do. The word chocolate just makes peoples eyes light up and mouths start watering and the Uuummm noises start. This is one recipe that you will use over and over. "It will make you jump straight up and down, like a turtle on a hot road."
