I’ve always had a sweet tooth. I’ve always loved a little dessert at the end of every meal, even it’s just a mint (no, not a rock! See earlier blog entitled “Don’t Eat The Rocks!”) And believe me, if dirt was covered in chocolate, I would eat it in a heartbeat.
In my world nothing can be too sweet or too chocolatey. Nothing soothes my taste buds like smooth gooey chocolate or dark chunky chocolate or even creamy white chocolate.
My favorite dessert is a hot fudge sundae, which in my mind is the perfect combination of textures, temperatures and colors. And the perfect sundae ends evenly with no leftover fudge or ice cream.
My favorite wine is always sweet too. The sweeter the better. And let’s talk about chocolate wine, shall we? Can it get any better?
Chocolate-covered anything is a great snack. Put the perfect coating on nuts, raisins, fruit or, dare I say it, more chocolate and you have a food you can’t stop eating. I mean it. I’ve tried.
And are chocolate chips not the greatest invention since. . . well, since chocolate sauce. Chocolate chips are the cutest little items that can be eaten by the handful or added to almost anything. Think about it. What wouldn’t be better with a cupful of little chips added to it? I can’t think of a thing that wouldn’t improve with chocolate chunks.
Chocolate is such a useful substance. It can be the center of a celebration on Valentine’s Day, anniversary, or birthday. It can be your friend in times of stress. It can be shared during a movie or be the highlight of a reception or gala. It can be solid, gooey or liquid.
It very seldom spoils and will last a long time. . . except at my house! Some people have allergies to chocolate and they are much to be pitied. A life without chocolate is very small indeed.
Chocolate is most definitely a central part of my life. And why not?! I love it. It could be worse. But it can’t get much better. I understand chocolate is even good for you. That’s what I want to believe anyway.
Pardon me while I lick my fingers. M&M’s eventually do melt in your hands, you know. But they go down well with chocolate milk.
Oh my, I feel so good right now. Chocolate high!!!
