Hello Chocolate Lavender!! Yummy... As many of you know, I have a devilish sweet tooth. My main calling? Always chocolate, the darker the better. The only thing that has ever called to me with equal excitement, is this quick and easy Lavender Chocolate Fudge recipe. Amazing is all I can say :-) Try it and let me know what you think.
