Chocolate Party

Valentine’s Day is on it’s way, do you know what you are going to serve your sweetheart? How about having a full on chocolate dinner? Chocolate main dish and a chocolate salad.

Chocolate Party

To start with I created a cocoa dry rub to rub down some plump little chicken tenderloins. This isn’t a sweet dry rub, but spicy. Then I served the chicken with a salad with orange slices and chocolate orange balsamic dressing.

I didn’t serve this to my hubby as he is not a fan of chocolate. But I actually served it at a dinner party I host once a year. I also created a fun little hot cocoa bar to top off the evening.

These recipes do serve a large group, but if you wish you can make up the dry rub or dressing and store it to use up slowly.
