Iron Chef Mom #2 – Chocolate Edition

I’m so excited to be hosting this week’s Iron Chef Mom linky party! When I was asked to select an ingredient there were many that popped into mind but chocolate really stood out to me.  My very favorite recipes all have chocolate in them :)  I can’t wait to see all the decadent chocolate recipes that get linked up this week!

Last week’s ingredient was apples and the turnout was amazing!  127 apple recipes were linked up and after the votes had been tallied we have our first Iron Chef Mom Winner…congratulations to Julie from Redhead Can Decorate!  You are an IRON CHEF MOM!  Check out Julie’s Easy {Dutch} Apple Pieand see why she’s our big winner!

Julie, please grab the button below so everyone can see you are an Iron Chef Mom!
