We spend a fair amount of time at our recipe tastings debating serving sizes. How many people does that side dish, main course, or dessert feed?  It’s all subjective, of course, depending on who’s eating, so we try to hit what we think is the number of servings based on an average appetite.  Usually, this involves physically dividing a recipe up and saying, “Yes, that looks like a reasonable serving size.” 

Yesterday, we were pondering chocolate. When it comes to everyone’s favorite candy, what looks like a reasonable serving size might not be realistic. With chocolate, it’s hard to stop once you get started, after all. So, our question to you is: How much chocolate would you eat for dessert? 2 oz? 4 oz? more?
