Chocolate Party

 Have you ever been to a chocolate party? Where everything on the tables is made from chocolate? We had one on Friday afternoon at school put on by the 5th grade teachers. It was a hoot.

 Wouldn’t you like a taste of this DECADENT Chocolate Peanut Butter cupcake? Oh heavenly yum, was it GOOD! I think it was a favorite. I took a picture after I’d gobbled half of it up.

Here it is before I bit into it….it’s a lot prettier here…..Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes….The icing is made from butter,
powdered sugar and peanut butter. And of course a peanut butter cup. Yum. Each one felt like it weighed a pound in your hand!

I must admit that I was a piggy and ate 2 of these bad boys….The cupcake itself has a peanut butter cup in the center too! 

I found THIS RECIPE online at All It’s my favorite recipe website. I’m trying these for sure! 

She melted some chocolate and swirled it on top of the cupcakes but I’d probably be too lazy for that. A candy peanut butter cup on top is plenty of lovin for anybody. 
Peanut Butter Frosting (recipe from All
1/2 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
4 cups confectioner’s sugar
1/3rd cup cream 
Mix the butter and peanut butter, add in half the sugar and half the milk and mix. Then add the rest and mix again. Frost cooled chocolate cupcakes and top with a peanut butter cup cut in half. Enjoy!

 Then of course you just HAVE to have a Texas sheet cake made with fudgy chocolate icing!

 Chocolate chip peanut butter cookie bars were also one of my favorites….I love these things!

 Brownies cut into a heart shape….so cute! There was row after row of chocolate madness!

Chocolate eclairs and plain bon bon bites.

 Then the real fun began. We were to take 1 piece of each kind of chocolate on the tables.

And there were at least 10 different kinds of chocolate candies to judge on a scale of 1 to 5 on a rubric. 
I think Bliss Chocolate was one of the winners and also the Lindt chocolate was good too. 
Here was our voting tables….with our ballots. We had fun categories do judge like “when broken does it have bubbles”  and “smooth and creamy on your tongue”. It was fun discussing the merits of chocolate. I was just happy eating it all! 

And here is our judging ballot for the chocolate party. It was fun. And I think we were happy campers all afternoon in a chocolate coma!
