Candy MarsBy Lynn R. Mitchell

Just in time for Christmas baking, the Washington Post felt it necessary to notify everyone that a chocolate shortage may be on the horizon (see The world’s biggest chocolate-maker says we’re running out of chocolate by Roberto A. Ferdman).

For someone who practices my somewhat-limited-but-always-fun chocolatier skills during the holiday season, it was not good news. After all, there’s fudge and pralines and chocolate-covered toffee and fudgy torts and more to bake and swirl and design.

Chocolate shortage? Say it ain’t true!
