n [chocolate + -oholic (as in alcoholic)](1968): a person who craves or compulsively consumes chocolate.
I am an unrepentant chocoholic. I keep chocolate in the kitchen, and more in my room so I don't have to go all the way to the kitchen when I get a midnight chocolate craving. I will eat almost anything that has chocolate on or in it, though I draw the line at chocolate covered bugs. I get grumpy when I don't get chocolate that day. My dream job would be test tasting new Godiva products. Does this sound familiar to you? You just might be a chocoholic too.
It is my belief that no ill in the world cannot be cured with a large steming mug of hot chocolate (marshmallows optional), and I'd prescribe it for a case of the blues anyday. My own version of hot chocolate is usually more chocolate than milk, and just sweet enough to take the edge off the bitter taste of unsweetened cocoa. A recipe for it doesn't appear on my page because it has always been a sort of recipe that involves adding enough of each ingredient until the mixture "tastes good". Not the stuff of modern cookery, I must admit, but it's the only way to do it as far as I'm concerned. The Bonnie Stern version isn't too bad, however, and it has measurements to guide you along.

These are a small collection of interesting links to sites that concern themselves with chocolate. I prefer to stay away from the major corporate sites like Godiva and Hershey, since the links are easy to find. Obscure chocolate links are always welcome, so please mail them to me.
Sex Drive and a Drug Named Chocolate: Interesting reading, that's for sure. :) Now I can say I'm a drug addict!
Cadbury Chocolate: Good chocolate. Available at your corner store. Come see and drool. Collect the recipes. Nuff said.
