Chad and I went away last weekend with our dear friends, Matt and Jenny Poladian to thier family's lake house on Lake Arrowhead. We knew there was going to be lots of snow so we planned all our meals and shopping before we went .Jenny brought all the goodies to make this, she found this recipe on Karen Harisick's blog ( http:// countrylivingshadowhills.blogspot.com ) Her blog is awesome! If you've never been, check it out! She puts up fabulous recipes every Wednesday. We made this both nights we were away, it was so delicious. Chad is not a huge chocolate fan and he LOVED this. It's bound to be a hit, enjoy!
