One of the major things I thought about during our Cleanse was how deprived I felt and how much I wanted chocolate.  It didn’t help that I was listening to a book called; Candy Freak, at work; about a fellow who is obsessed with chocolate candy bars. His book explores the history of chocolate (quite fascinating). Throughout the book the main character (its a memoir  is biting into delicious chocolate bars that, the passionate chocolatier, who is in charge of that particular factory, is excitedly showing him.  Some have hazelnuts, some have almonds some have wafers…..oh my.  Needles to say, I was Craving chocolate and wanted it almost desperately.  I kept thinking of Willie Wonka’s chocolate river. And the way that Charlie undid the wrapper of his chocolate bar, looking for the last  golden ticket.  If only I could jump in a chocolate river….and unwrap a big candy bar, only to take a huge bite and then another and another……

So the day after we’d finished, I made a dark chocolate cake with dark chocolate icing.  Check it out!  I must say, it turned out quite well.  It will be enjoyed with coffee ice-cream 🙂
