Today we're talking about chocolate. My favorite chocolate treats and, let's face it, I don't eat candy that's not chocolate. Nothing fruity or sour or minty or chewy or hard and I don't like anything that gums up my molars, like Butterfingers or Clark Bars.
So--if I'm going to eat chocolate, here's my Top Ten Favorites:
#1) For special occasions, like Valentines, it has to be Mounds.
#2) For everyday, Hershey's Dark Chocolate Kisses are my go-to treat. I always have some in the freezer. I'll have 2 after lunch and sometimes another 2 after dinner.
#3) For Christmas, a dark Chocolate assorted is a favorite gift:
I prefer 60% to 80% dark chocolate. A single bar makes goes great with a mug of coffee!
#4) In lieu of a Hershey assorted, I'll take a Dark Ghirardelli:
I think I had both the Hershey assortment and a Ghirardelli at Christmas that I gradually worked through by the end of January.
#5) I totally love chocolate-covered raisins, milk or dark. I can tell myself I'm eating something good for me. Plus they're surprisingly filling.
#6) Sunsweet Dark Chocolate Plum Sweets are my new favorite chocolate snack! Little bits of prune coated in a delicious rich dark chocolate! But you can't eat a whole lot of them at once--they are prunes and too many prunes have consequences.
#7) Malt Easter Eggs! I love these with a passion! Hubby thinks they taste like eating sandpaper. Good, all mine.
#8) I actually love orange-flavored chocolate, so I love Terry's Orange Chocolate, both milk & dark, though I haven't eaten one in years. I like the idea of them.
#9) Peanut M&M's are my preferred M&M snack, if I'm going to eat or cook with M&M's!
#10) Finally, my favorite treat that is chocolate, but isn't actually candy: chocolate-covered pretzels! There's just something about that combination of sweet & salty that's just so good! I can't buy them, I love them so much.
I may love all these chocolate delights, but the only things I actually have on hand is the Dark Chocolate Kisses in my freezer and the Plum Sweets in my pantry.
I know some people say if they eat one, they have to eat the whole bag, but that's not me.
So what's your favorite sweet treat?
