A couple of months ago, I signed up for C. J. Darlington's, "TitleTrakk," newsletter. She features news about books, music, blogs, etc. and runs contests.
Have you seen those chocolate fountains at parties, bridal showers, etc.? Well, you don't have to rush out and purchase one to enjoy the taste of chocolate-covered fruit or pretzels. One ounce of chocolate in a small, microwave-safe dish is all you need. Microwave on high for 45 seconds. Stir. It may not look melted, but it is. Careful - don't scorch the chocolate. My favorites: chocolate covered strawberries and pretzels. Yummy!
