Chocolate for Mother's Day


Were you planning on buying mom the predictable flowers to celebrate Mother's Day? Everyone wants to buy their mom something special on Motherís Day. Take the stress and guess work out of buying a gift and get your mom something she really wants. Chocolate looks just as pretty as flowers and the aroma can be equally as intoxicating. Have you ever walked in to a candy shop and couldnít leave without buying a little something? The bittersweet aroma hits you as you enter the store and drags you in. Let's get creative with chocolate and explore some great gift giving options.

A chocolate recipe book is one option, especially the large coffee table ones with tons of pictures. Spend time flipping through with family. This can trigger fun discussions of favorite desserts and chocolate childhood memories.

Homemade gifts speak from the heart. Try the Cake Ball Truffle Recipe provided on the site last month. Many craft stores sell boxes to package candy and truffles. Typically these boxes are plain and white. Wrap the box with a bow in the color of your choice. When your mom finds out these werenít store bought she may insist you make them again.

Life is hectic and we canít always find time to bake. A trip to your local candy shop or bakery will uncover all sorts of edible ideas. Brownies, fudge, chocolate chip cookies, and truffles only scratch the surface at a bakery.

Do you think the chocolate shop smell should continue on all day? Chocolate scented soap and lotions will keep your mom sweet all day.

Many themed gift baskets are on the market today. But why not make your own. They are easy enough to create and allow you to personalize to the recipientís interests.

Does your mom like to bake? Put together a gift basket with all her favorite baking necessities.
The gift basket can include:
Cocoa powder for baking
Baking chocolate
A new chocolate recipe book
A fun shaped cake pan or cookie cutter
Cinnamon and vanilla are great additions when baking chocolate desserts

Maybe your mom loves chocolate and doesnít want to have to bake for it. Make a gift basket with all things chocolate.
This gift basket can include:
Brownies
Truffles or Fudge
Chocolate dipped biscotti
Chocolate candle
Gourmet hot fudge
Pair the desserts with your momís drink of choice whether it be dessert wine, coffee, or a liqueur (chocolate liqueur is a great option if you feel you can never have enough chocolate!).

The only negative with buying chocolate for Motherís Day is flowers will last much, much longer. Have a great Motherís Day!
