I'll have my turkey with a little chocolate

Mexican mole is a sauce made with chocolate (and tomatoes, chills, bread, nuts, and spices) and it's heavenly on turkey! Most of the legends of the origins of mole depict the genius or hapless (depending on the version) inventors topping a turkey with the flavorful brown sauce.

It's not too late for this year! Even if you don't marinate your bird in mole before roasting, you can mix up a batch of mole as a sauce for leftovers. Here is a good recipe for turkey mole sauce from Epicurious.com.

And if you like your chocolate turkey more, shall we say, pure...we have chocolate molded turkeys available in our shop at 79th & Broadway.
