Awash in Chocolate

Do you think it's possible to have too much chocolate?
I know. That question sounds ridiculous even as I say it, but the chocolate lying around my house gives evidence to the contrary.
My husband bought me chocolates for Valentine's Day and I still have a few left.
Then last week, for no reason except that he's romantic and fabulous, he brought home a small box of chocolates when he walked past the chocolate shop on his way home. 
For my birthday yesterday, he traveled to the Godiva shop to pick up some more delicious chocolates.
 And, of course, what sort of birthday cake would I want? Chocolate!
This chocolate bombe, as it's called, comes from Pistacia Vera in German Village Columbus. It is filled with chocolate mousse and the chocolate outside has a definite French chocolate taste to it. 
Having too much chocolate is quite a dilemma. There are only two ways to fix it -- eat it or share it.
I wish you were all close enough to share... but since you aren't...

See this is where I would have a "portion control problem"...LOL

What a sweet husband. I tell my husband NEVER to buy me candy as I know my addictions.
