Okay, it's 102 degrees out in southern California and I'm melting. So what do you do with a chunky bar of dark chocolate? I like to stick it in the fridge just long enough to get firm...or if I really want it crunchy hard it'll go in the freezer for a bit.
I'd skip the drinking hot tea with it, though. And I actually find that hard to do without. So what could be a better substitute? How about Thai iced tea or iced coffee?
Course those drinks are a bit on the sweet side for my taste, but they're a nice contrast and complement to the bitter dark I go for.
One can never be too rich or too poor to go without chocolate. Even on a hot day. Money is no object when it comes to this necessity...or obsession, as others would put it. heheh...
