Champagne Loaf with Dark Chocolate

Today is a celebration for me.  Well, an extra special celebration since everyday is a celebration for me.

Seven years ago today, I married my best friend.  The man who taught me patience.  The one who brings a smile to my face every day.  The man who has been my rock from the day I met him.  The “ambassador” as he is referred to in his office. My daughters dubbed him “Supreme”.  He has a way of making every situation have a positive outcome.

I learned about knowing what it is to have a passion about a hobby.  His being baseball stats, and baseball cards.  I know more about Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, and Jim Rice just to name a few than I ever thought I would in my lifetime.

I wanted to make something special using champagne because we both love champagne.  So I created this Champagne Loaf with Dark Chocolate using World Market Chocolate made with Strawberries and Champagne.Champagne Loaf with Dar Chocolate Recipe

It definitely was well worth the 6 PP per slice.  What a fun way to use champagne.  For those that prefer non alcoholic try using sparkling cider.
