    A Bittersweet Addiction...SHF #13

    Okay, so I confess! I'm addicted to chocolate. Well, maybe not...I mean, its not like I HAVE to have chocolate every day! There are times when I can go days without even craving for this taste of heaven. I have a whole section in my pantry dedicated to these 'lil beauties and I can honestly say that they have been lying there safe for a long time now without me taking a grab at them every other minute! But then, once I get a craving, there's no stopping me! It doesn't take much to tempt me to have a bite. Just the thought of it is more than sufficient. I love the way it just melts as soon as I lay it on my tongue. Chocolate is the best comfort food I can think of. Just one bite of its extraordinarily smooth taste and I'm instantly transported to that happy place. And with the holiday season just around the corner, I can never get enough of this heavenly sin! You can't imagine my excitement when I decided to start participating in SHF, and found this month's topic, The Dark Side!! I created this recipe on on of those chocolate-craving moments. It's to DIE for... Chocolate Nut Tartlets

    Ingredients: 1 cup cream 1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips 1 tsp instant coffee powder 2 tbsp sugar 1 tsp vanilla extract Assortment of chopped nuts 12 mini tart shells ( I use the frozen ones and prepare them according to the packaged instructions) Method: Heat cream till it is warm enough to melt the chocolate chips. Do not let it come to a boil. Add chocolate chips, sugar, coffee powder and vanilla extract, and stir till the chocolate starts to melt. Remove the mixture from heat and keep stirring till chocolate melts nicely and forms a thick paste. Set aside to cool for 15-20 minutes. Fill each tart shell with the melted chocolate and sprinkle with choice of nuts.

    Serve warm or chilled!

    Greetings -- I just came across your blog. I LOVE INdian food. I am a huge fan. I wish I had a bumper sticker that said "I break for Indian food". A must with Indian cuisine is a glass of white wine. Keep the recipes coming.

    [b]Description[/b]

    Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
    Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
    Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
    Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

    Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
    The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
