My brother-in-law and his amazing girlfriend were so kind and offered to do a post for me. And not only is it a tasty one, but comedic as well. Hopefully I’m almost in the clear with my morning sickness…one more week until my second trimester! Thanks for sticking out the doldrum period. Love you guys! 🙂
Hello! This post is brought to you by Chelsea and Tyler. Thanks to Caroline for giving us control of the blog for a day (which is risky!). Just kidding…not risky at all. But anyways, we hope you enjoy!
Hint: It gets better as you go down the page.
What you are about to experience will blow your mind.
- 3 high-quality baby carrots
- Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup (we prefer Special Dark variety)
- Place carrots in an artsy bowl and paint them with the chocolate syrup. Done and done. Culinary masterpiece complete.
There, did that blow your mind? Chocolate. Carrots. Who would’ve thought of such a delectable duo? So simple yet so irresistible. Well, delectable as it might be, we have something a bit more in the spirit of chocolateandcarrots.com, the blog.
Crank up your Kitchen Aids and buckle up…
There’s not too much to say about these little guys, except for the fact that we HIGHLY recommend you make them for yourself (and others).
They are delicious, soft, and chewy, and they feature a lovely autumnal array of flavors. Mmmmmm….
