Start 2015 with Chocolate

Happy 2015!  Now is the time to think about healthy and joyous ways of adding chocolate into your lives.  To help you we supply a "fun food calendar" each month.  This year I will also add a poll you can vote on and at the end of the first week, your votes will determine what recipe I try out in the second half of the month.

To start us off, here is our first polls.  This is based on the fun food holidays and also whether or not I've already shared a recipe or tried a recipe for the item in the past on The Chocolate Cult.

Update: Sadly there was a tie between Chocolate Popcorn and Chocolate Croissant and even though I posted again asking folks to break the tie, no one voted for one of these. Since we do not charge fees of any type on The Chocolate Cult nor sell anything, I really can't afford to try more than one recipe.

If the polls are a stupid idea, please tell me in a comment and I won't put them in future calendar posts.

Thanks, Cerise. I keep looking for new fun food holidays to add, too. Let me know if you know of any.
