FOTMC Round-Up: Chocolate

I can't think of a better way to celebrate Leap Day than with a party.  A chocolate party!  It's time to round-up all of the decadent, sinfully delicious, chocolate recipes a few of my friends around the blogosphere made for this month's Food of the Month Club.  

To get our little Chocolate party started, let me offer you something to drink, like this gorgeous Chocolate Margarita from Vianney of Sweet Life.  I don't know what I love more: the homemade chocolate syrup, the shaved chocolate around the rim, or the chocolate "Amor" garnish... Simply stunning!



Ready for a little dessert?  Corina from Searching for Spice whipped up this gorgeous Chocolate Microwave Cake.  I could swim in that rich, luxurious pudding that magically forms when done cooking in the microwave!


Since February is el mes del amor (the love month), Heather from Girlichef baked up these super cute heart-shaped Chocolate Fudge Brownies with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting.  It fell in love just looking at them.



For those of you who aren't all that crazy about chocolate desserts, Sarah from Kitchen Procrastination,, made us these Seared Steaks with Red Wine and Chocolate Sauce.  The sauce sounds amazing!



Still in the mood for something sweet?  My friends at  Peru Delights made these sweet candy confections called Chocotejas.  So many flavors and textures in one tiny piece of candy.  (Sigh!)  


Then we have this dreamy Chocolate Chip Chocoflan from Nicole at Presley's Pantry.  So much chocolate-y goodness in one incredible dessert.


Now to end our little party, I send you hugs and these sweet, irresistible Monkey Kisses from Ericka at Nibbles & Feasts.  Bet you can't have just one!


A big THANK YOU, to my wonderful foodie friends for joining me.

If you would like to be included in next month's Round-Up, be sure to tune in tomorrow to find out our Food of the Month for March.

What's your favorite way to use chocolate?
