Yep, 65 dozen. Just looking for the rah-rah squad to keep me goin'! Roughly 65 pounds of chocolate. Luckily I buy in 20 or 40 pounds at a time and I had some onhand. My inventory will be zero in two days . . .

780 of them! Yowsers!!! If anybody could do it, you could. Be sure to charge them the nightowl/graveyard fee on the last 20 dozen.
