Thinking about the last year, the memories that have come along, some with purpose and intent and some by surprise, some believe life is directed and others believe it is by happenstance, none the less I want everyone to cross the bridge to a new day, a new thought, a new memory, a new joy, a new sense of totality and well being, be blessed my friends and take care as we all venture into another year in this journey we call LIFE! Happy New Year, Diana

A favorite at Christmas, these morsels of intense flavor and texture are surprisingly easy to make and require no more than just a few fresh ingredients.
8 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons sweet butter
Break the chocolate into small pieces and place them in a food processor or blender with 1/2 cup cocoa powder. Pulse until completely blended. Combine the cream and butter in a small saucepan and stir until hot; be certain that it does not boil. Pour the hot mixture over the chocolate in the blender and process just until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until firm, 2 to 3 hours.
Scoop out the chocolate by the teaspoonful or with a melon baller, then shape each piece in your hands. Coat in the remaining 1/2 cocoa. Refrigerate until serving time.
