While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.
December 16 is National Chocolate Covered Anything Day, and we mean anything. You’ve got your usual suspects – pretzels, peanuts, strawberries and peanut butter; your decadent suspects – Oreos, donuts, cake and candy; and your interesting suspects – grasshoppers, bacon, potato chips and scorpions.
Basically, the sky’s the limit today, as long as you coat it in chocolate.
Unless… can you coat the sky in chocolate?

How does a Gnatsie with OCD for proper spelling and grammar celebrate this fine day? With a classic:
Chocolate covered chocolate.
Chocolate covered potato chips. You need to order an a la carte angioplasty with it, but it's totally worth it.
effin spammer take your crap website somewhere else
You guys ever tried chocolate covered bacon? Sounded gross to me when I heard it, but gave it a try anyway, OMG that is like the best stuff ever invented. Kind of a pain to make, but well worth it.
Not a fan of pig flesh, but I have seen it displayed in a local establishment called Legacy Chocolates.
Pssst....It's me. What times the party starting?
An hour and a half!! Anticipation is killing me!
Please be gentle with my Brother.2 Marine batteries should do the trick and make sure you ground the jumper cables. Enjoy!
No worries! He's been in training at Camp Mizdizz for nearly a year now. The young man has amazing endurance and recovers quickly. But thanks for the suggestion, we'll give it a try!
Is that your "O face" Jdizz? Good man, enjoy!!
Those strawberries look more delectable than allowed by law.
How about anyone? Sounds like brunch to me!!

I always give some sort of culinary gift.. and these would be great to bring as a hostess gift..I also found this hilarious, politically incorrect cookbook that I am giving to everyone too! It is called.. well.. I won't tell you the name of it her cause some of you will freak, but if you google "whipped and be aten culinary works" you can find it.. best part is it was under $15! but be warned. if you dont have a good sense of humor.. this one probably isn't for you!
