Mmmm… chocolate!

It’s that time of year again when imaginative chocolatiers tempt us into eating egg-shaped treats and indulging in a variety of chocolate bunnies.  I have great memories of collecting amassing obscene amounts of easter eggs as a child and completely gorging myself on Easter Sunday.  The living room usually looked like some broken chocolate bomb-site and for the days that followed, my siblings and I would graze contentedly on the remains, in a kind of chocolate induced stupor.

Nowadays, I try to limit my egg eating to one (well, maybe two… and a bunny!) so I have to get my chocolate fix elsewhere. Yes, you got it in one – hot chocolate! That doesn’t count, does it? Well apart from an entirely innocent hot chocolate at the end of a long day, I love to indulge in a good chocolatey book. So, for the season that’s in it, here are a few delicious books that will, frankly, only increase your cravings for chocolate! Ah, what the hell, it’s Easter 🙂

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Charlie Bucket, #1) The original and the best, Charlie & The Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.

Chocolat (Chocolat, #1) The dark and magical Chocolat by Joanne Harris
