National Chocolate Day/ Happy Halloween

Original post from blog: Confections, Crafts and Couture

Happy Saturday and Halloween! It has been a busy week indeed. On Wednesday I was celebrating National Chocolate Day, which everyone should partake of. I decided that I wanted make my own chocolates this year since I knew I wouldn't be buying any to pass out to trick or treaters. I thought this would be a great way to celebrate and show how easy it is to make your own treats as well. If chocolates weren't enough, I added a delicious chocolate cake to this recipe to make also. There is no such thing as too much chocolate especially when you are celebrating a national holiday times two. If you are not sure what your plans are for today and you want something rich and delectable to eat that's sweet. Give this recipe a try. Check out the details for the recipe and the DIY step-by-step video below.
