  4. It would be so hard not to actually eat the chocolate! But, this by far sounds like the best spa treatment that ever existed!

  5. I had to laugh when I read this because I just finished savoring a piece of dark chocolate! I was also trying to justify having just one more piece... I am going to pass the At Home Chocolate Facial recipe to my DIL. Thanks!
