My friend snapped this picture of me while I was choosing my box of chocolates.  I think it definitely captured the joy of chocolate shopping on my face.

This was such a cool way to have hot chocolate.  We basically put the chocolate tulip that is filled with Belgian chocolate shavings into the hot steamed milk and stir.  Soooo good!

You can’t leave Belgian without having Belgian & Liege waffles!!  To say that these were drizzled with chocolate is an understatement.  *drooool*

Calling all chocoholics! Belgium is where it is at!  We were definitely on a chocolate high when we visited Brussels and Bruges.  Oh my gosh, you name it, they had it.  I don’t even think we had a proper lunch or dinner that day.  It was just chocolate shopping (and tasting) wherever we went.  The chocolatiers were super nice there.  Most of the stores offer you samples…and I don’t mean chocolate chopped up into tiny little pieces for you to sample.  I mean they offer you the whole thing!  I believe in one store we tried about 7 to 8 different kinds of chocolate.  Oh yeah, did I tell you there is no such thing as calories in Belgium (or Europe in general).  I mean, the walking makes up for it all, right? 😉
