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.
Yesterday may have been Snowmageddon 2.0, but today’s forecast is a lot sweeter: Chocolate Rain. December 28 is National Chocolate Candy Day, so stop imagining you’re eating a handful and actually do it - especially if you haven’t polished off your stocking loot, or dare we say, Halloween candy, yet.
M&M’s don’t cut it? Customize your own chocolaty treat.

Looking for a cozy Wheaton breakfast restaurant? I recommend Egglectic Cafe.
Would love to see the segment "Jeffrey Saad explores the unique ways people dress up hot dogs." Hebrew National dogs with onion, mustard, chile and a little cheese. I can hammer 4 in one setting. So good.
Heb Nationals are very good. Mmmm, now I'm hungry.
I know so good. I actually pulled a pack out of the freezer last night that I had bought on sale. Guess what's for dinner.
I saw a show on Food Network a couple of months ago where a guy put homemade mac &cheese with leeks on top of his hot dogs. I've been dying to try that ever since. The creaminess of the mac & cheese with the slight saltiness of the hot dog...okay, now I'm really hungry.
Now if you ever do try that you have to tell us how it turns out. Does sound really good.
I think I would eat a brick if it was wrapped in bacon...
We have bacon wrapped whole green beans every holiday....we love them!!!!! Sprinkle them with all spice and they are wonderful!!!!
I was just joking around but that actually sounds really good. I can't wait to try it!
I like bacon wrapped veggies!
Sorry, Meant @TWO
Got it. You just need to use toothpicks.
OK, thanks for the tip.
LOL...my first post removed :)
I feel so special!
Bacon fixes everything.
Even Rachael Ray.
Sweet. I've already participated today. And I have no problem participating more.
"beer and bacon are being used to reinvent a more-manly cupcakes"
