Of course, being such good friends, they agreed to come eat chocolate with me and we had a blast. We paired our Ghirardelli Intense Dark Chocolate with raspberries, strawberries, pineapple and some marshmallows. It was the perfect balance of the rich dark chocolate with the sweet fruits. And they all agreed that this wasn't just any ordinary chocolate- Ghirardelli Intense Dark Chocolate was smooth and indulgent and we savored every bite!
Although the chocolate was great, the best part was catching up with the girls. It's so important to have good friends in life and I feel so blessed to have some of the best just down the street. We laugh and commiserate over baby worries, husband stories and our own insecurities and it's so great to have good friends to go through life with. I hope you have some good girl friends to gather for some chocolate, girl chat and laughter.
And.....did I mention there are other awesome flavors of the Ghirardelli Intense Dark Chocolate? My other favories inlude: 72% Twilight Delight (seen above) Sea Salt Soiree, Hazelnut Heaven and Toffee Interlude. Definitely grab a few flavors for your next Girl's Night or I guess, if your boyfriend or husband is lucky enough- a romantic chocolate and fruit night for 2 (my husband was jealous this spread wasn't for him!).
And if you are in Austin this week, make sure to stop by Ghirardelli's booth at the Austin FOOD & WINE Festival. Ghirardelli will be featured at the Grand Tasting, the VIP Lounge and the Sips & Sweets Desserts Party. You won't want to miss them!
