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...

Yes, Lydia don't let any chocolate, even melted chocolated go to waste! Here's an another idea -- melt the chocolate all way until it gets "syrupy" -- Then toss in a blender with some milk for about 10 seconds ( 2 OZ of chocolate to 8 OZ of milk is a good ratio), then toss in about 10 OZ of ice, and blend for 20 seconds. You will get a nice frothy cold drink that will make Starbucks run for the hills :) Have a great day.
