Chocolate Covered Craving

Say ‘Chocolate’. C-H-O-C-O-L-A-T-E. Didn’t that just make you go “MMMMMM“? Feel your pulse now… Yeah, that’s what I thought. Breathe. Try not to drool. What, are you thinking of making a chocolate run now? [I'm evil like that! :-)]

Notice how you crave for what you’ve ran out of? Right now I’m dreaming of the decadent chocolate we used to dip the mallow cones and these strawberries. I like and don’t like milk chocolate because of that oh-my-god-I-feel-like-I’m-going-to-die-with-the-sweetness, and yet the Callebaut milk chocolate made me feel that it was all worth it — to die of its sweetness and richness, that is. You know that favorite top you wish you have unlimited supply of because you will not live without it? That’s how I feel about this chocolate. I can’t promise not to hoard it next time, along with my usual Green & Black’s white and dark chocolates. Mmmm.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Now say it with me: MMMMMmmmm. There. That’s today’s version of OM.

If you’re asking why the strawberries have been cut, well here’s my explanation: When we bought them, we didn’t check or think of the stems. Instead of stems, these large strawberries had bushes. Bushes! So I cut them off and stick em with wooden picks. It looks worse, I know.

In light of all this chocolate talk, tell me — What chocolate do you like? I’ll leave my answer in the poll and comments. It’s your turn:

    I like white and milk chocolate for plain eating. Dark chocolate for pairing with wine. Hmm…it really depends on my mood and what I’m eating at the time. It’s weird.

    I’ll always grab the dark chocolate. The darker, the better. Funny, my husband and I were just talking about this! I said that every once in a (great) while, I dream of ripping the wrapper of a good old Hershey milk chocolate bar and digging in. But for regular snacking, it’s always dark. Our favorite snack is a plate of dark chocolate squares, grapes, and nuts-most often cashews or almonds. Heaven on a little plate. And there’s always a secret bag of Ghirardelli bittersweet chips hidden from the kids. shhhhh……

  3. Sometimes I want dark, sometimes I want white and other times, I want milk chocolate. :)

  6. This photo is so great. I adore strawberries and I adore milk chocolate. And that is why I can’t stop thinking about your photo.

    Help! My girlfriend turned me into a dark chocolate snob! I can’t eat milk chocolate anymore. I must admit I really do love dark chocolate and dark chocolate covered snacks and fruit. I especially love dark chocolate covered cranberries. By the way, did you know that Mounds bars are covered in dark chocolate?

    If you have a chance, check out the latest article we put on our blog. It’s about how to tell which chocolate-covered snacks are good for you and which should be regarded as occasional indulgences.

    Thanks for this cool article and great pic. I look forward to more.
