Chocolate chip cookies, hot fudge sundaes, pretzel M&M's, and my grandmother's chocolate cake....mmmmm. If I had to pick, I'd say these are a few of my favorite ways to enjoy the sweet, rich ingredient we all know and love, chocolate. Next week, we're celebrating Chocolate Week all five days here on Martha Stewart Living Radio and I have to say, I'm a little excited. On each of our shows, we'll be chatting with bakers, pastry chefs, and chocolatiers about the many ways we can use and indulge in chocolate. They'll share recipes and offer tips and we'll be blogging about all of it. For a complete list of who will be on throughout the week, see our individual show schedules.
