Maybe a Bad Chocolate Thing


So last weekend, Boyfriend and I were together on his carb day. As I referenced last week, I baked some awesomesauceness. I made homemade thin mints!

Sure, I burned one batch:



But I got the hang of it and made more:


After I baked them, I had to cover them in melted chocolate:

I’m going to be honest, the covering-with-chocolate thing was a disaster. I tried to draw a picture of it, but it just looked like poo.  I would have taken a photo, but every inch of everything was covered in chocolate, and I didn’t want to get my phone dirty.

The finished product:

It was worth the mess though, because they were freaking delicious.
  
We ate them Saturday night. I woke up Sunday morning and there was…badness.

I am a wuss.




I panicked a little
To sum up, I had a headache. It definitely wasn’t caused by chocolate. Definitely not.

  1. It COULD NOT be the chocolate. Chocolate only brings sunshine, rainbows, and less less bitchy coworkers. There is nothing bad about chocolate. Don't even imply it...I'll cut you if you talk bad about chocolate.

  3. Chocolate has caffeine. Caffeine actually HELPS headaches. At least in my case when I am suffering from some withdrawl.

    I blame the mint.

  6. Chocolate gives Hellbaby the diarrheas. Which is totally different from a headache, so I would say it was something else.

  7. Could've been the stress and tension that the dipping caused!

  8. I was going to quote "Kindergarten Cop", but then I would feel really bad if it WAS a tumor and everyone would be mad at me and boycott my blog and send hate mail. So I'm not going to.

  12. That is my worst nightmare, becoming unable to eat chocolate! I need chocolate to sustain my very existence. No one should ever say bad things about it, Never, ever.

    Those thin mints looked fantastic!
