Our lake Improvement Association's annual Oktoberfest is next weekend and I'm contemplating making one for the event. My wife and I did a bus tour of Germany three years ago. One of our stops was a demonstration of the art of making cuckoo clock. At 9:00 AM as we were getting off the bus, the clock maker greeted us with a tray of cherry brandy shots. Everyone had at least three before we entered the shop. Although my wife and I agreed we were not going to purchase a clock prior to leaving for our trip, we did find the perfect clock. Of course it's hanging on a wall in our humble abode. Prior to our departure, the clockmaker treated the group to Black Forest Cake and coffee.

Cherry brandy shots? A marketing stroke of genius! 😁

Whoever first thought of putting cherries and chocolate together deserves a plaque and the one who added brandy to the mix deserves a medal.

My personal favorite is chocolate and orange or tangerine. A dark chocolate orange sherbet sundae would be fabulous. Now try and find one!
A health food store I shop sells a chocolate and orange candy bar, mighty tasty.

Let's not kid ourselves here: chocolate + fill in the fruit, almost always works. Currently, there is a nice bag of chocolate-covered pineapple slices in our fridge, which might make a nice pre-dinner treat, yup, back shortly.
