If you regularly visit my site that you must already know about my love affair with chocolate. Deep dark chocolatey goodness is one of my biggest weaknesses, or strengths, I guess it depends upon how you look at it 🙂
Sometimes I’m in the mood for chocolate ice cream, other times I can’t resists a good old chocolate chip cookie, but then there is those days where I am craving the most chocolatey indulgence I can find.
Melt-in-your-mouth chocolate goodness….
That is the exact moment I get out my food processor to whip these babies up!
Everyone needs a little sweet chocolate pick me up from time to time, and these bite-sized goodies are the ultimate no-guilt treat!
I have had so many changes in the last few months, some good, and some extremely difficult and challenging. I realize that there is so many things out of my control, and the only thing I can control is my perspective and attitude. I’ve had to let go and accept situations for what they are. Life happens and the only thing that is consistent is change.
I have taken more time recently to live in the present, or try to, and enjoy all the details. Take note of more that is going on around me and really absorb it, and let it marinate.
The warm summer breeze grazing my cheek and the twinkling sunlight that found its way through the leaves of an oak tree while I practiced yoga outside.
A smile from a toddler-toting mom, relaying an unspoken understanding of the amazingness and challenges of motherhood that we share.
The sweet melody of song birds, sharing their music during my morning meditation.
And the joy of baking and making something to feed my soul. Yes, something chocolate.
Chocolate is comforting, familiar, and centering. It bring me into the present moment. The sweet smell wafting in the air, the smooth texture, and rich taste all beckon to me to be here and now. I hope these brownie bites will do the same for you!
Sometimes food can help heal the soul, its true.
