I have a pretty terrible addiction to chocolate, and all sweets really. That’s why my favorite part of Valentine’s Day is all the delicious concoctions bakeries, desserteries, and restaurants come up with around the holiday. For those of you who don’t want to break the bank buying every cake, cookie, and pie in sight (like me), we found this delectable recipe for vegan dark chocolate cherry walnut truffles. Read More

Remember that Special K commercial which featured a woman who allegedly needed a chocolate fix and, with hardly any thought, reached for a perfectly-portioned bowl of Special K's Chocolatey Delight? Yeah, I’m not buying it. Maybe it’s just me, but when I’m craving chocolate, the waxy brown stuff that appears in every few bites of that cereal isn’t quite enough to satiate my cravings. Read More
We BUST staffers have a mouthful of sweet teeth-- we email each other photos of ice-cream concoctions and homemade marshmallows as if we're sending around breaking-news items. We get goodies sent to the office from time to time, but few have gotten as much attention as the stuff we recently received from Sweet Mary's. We marveled over the multicolored Caramel Chocolate Apples, which were approximately the size of a newborn baby's head, and quickly devoured a bag full of Sweets Mix (above), which is a mixture of cereal, nuts, and other sundries, all covered in melted white chocolate.

Full disclosure, BUSTies: I’m a regular Liz Lemon when it comes to chocolate. Which means I LOVE it. So I was super excited when BUST Crafty Lady Callie offered me a bar of Lake Champlain’s Grace Under Fire chocolate to taste and review. I was initially a little skeptical–I’d like to think that I’m fairly adventurous when trying new foods, but the description “Pistachio & Red Pepper Dark Chocolate” did throw me off a bit. Read More
Somehow Ben Milne, a baker in Scotland, found a way to create a  delicious, edible 7 inch of his friends' band, Found, made entirely of chocolate and edible paper. After experimenting with chocolate on vinyl and homemade templates, Milne contacted the band's record label, who gave him a vinyl press of his own to create this musical sweetness. Apparently it plays on all record players, which is pretty neat, but I'm not sure how many times I'd be able to play it before eating it!  To check out the video, click here.
