Perhaps you are unaware of this, but I post a couple times a month on a massive nerd site called Legendarium Media. I’m a nerd, so I can say that. Since I had this legally-questionable cookbook just sitting around, I figured I could still post the recipes using the original text.

Before I tell you about this event, let me share the fact that Albuquerque has TWO big chocolate events in the month of March. TWO. What the hell?
