What's Your Chocolate Blog Hop!

WORD FOR THIS POST:

Chocolate (n): 1. a preparation of the seeds of cacao, roasted, husked, and ground, often sweetened and flavored, as with vanilla.

Thank you to hosts M.Pax, Laura Eno, Brinda Berry, Ciara Knight for hosting the most delicious blog hop EVER!

Every woman's dream, desire and ultimate solution to any problem.

CHOCOLATE

Dripping chocolate, hard chocolate, Swiss chocolate, sweet chocolate, bitter chocolate. Chocolate cakes, bars, muffins, cookies, ice cream, milk.

They come in all shapes and sizes, but it doesn't really matter so long as it melts on my tongue spreading its savory sweetness of coco to my taste buds. Lingering in my mouth like a prolonged o...(oops) - got lost there for a moment. I think you get the point as to how much I love Chocolate.

If I go to a restaurant and there's a chocolate desert - you can bet that's the one I'm getting.

If the desert is a double chocolate (name your desert) vs triple chocolate (name your desert) - the triple will always win.

If there are two chocolate deserts and there's no way to know which one's better then we have a problem that can only be solved by getting both deserts.

Do I have a favorite chocolate desert? That's like asking a kid to choose between a toy and a toy.

No, I don't have a favorite, so long as it's chocolate, but a nice Truffle Royale cake from LaRocca is on the top of my list.

I was going to post pictures fro LaRocca, but they're not public domain :(  Sorry.

And, if it's my birthday, it can only be a Black Forest Cake. A BIG Black Forest Cake. I once ordered one cake for the guests and another one for myself (smaller size of course) because when it comes to Black Forest Cakes, there can never be too much.

Now, I can wipe the drool off my face and hop over to the other participants of the blog hop. The list is below.

Sweet Hopping Everyone!

Oh...Marta. You have it bad. Real bad. Actually, you love it as much as I do. And I like your logic in solving a two dessert problem. Nice to meet you on the hop. I love adding new blogs to my Google Reader list.

That is me too, I always pick the chocolate dessert, too! I would certainly have a dilemma if I had to choose between two chocolate ones!

A cake for yourself - that's funny!

I have it bad for Dove and Godiva.


Hugs and chocolate,

Completely agree about the restaurant desserts.

My sister and I had a system for figuring out which chocolate dessert to buy in a supermarket. We counted how many mentions of the word 'chocolate' - eg. A chocolate sponge, with thick chocolate ganache, and chocolate swirls.

The best cake we ever found had 7 mentions... oooh, it was good!

Okay, you sound like a hopeless chocoholic... a real addict... as in "not-capable-of-being-rehabilitated" Lol

Ciara said...

I'm not sure, do you like chocolate? :) Great chocolate post. I think most women understand this.

Drool. Never too much chocolate is my motto as well. :) Thanks for joining the blogfest!

I'm not a chocolate lover, so I can't relate to your enthusiasm to the cocoa. But keep the descriptions going, you almost had me convinced to try some! :3

I'm usually not too fussy when it comes to chocolate. As a rule I'm happy with any chocolate I get.
