What Are Your Favorite Chocolates?

One of my most guiltiest pleasures of lately is chocolate! And if I'm correct, I do believe many other people have the same love for chocolates as I do.

I haven't always been in "love" with chocolates. I wasn't that big on candy until I recently found my sweet tooth, which isn't exactly a great thing to find when you're trying to lose weight. Nevertheless, I still let myself devour in chocolate candies, cookies, and ice cream. Even my favorite coffee flavor is "mocha," which of course has chocolate in it!

Recently, I read about the new "Craft Chocolate" crave, which has been extremely popular in UK for the past decade.

What is Craft Chocolate?

Well, it's similar to the Craft Beer and Craft Coffee fads. Smaller startup business are opening up "Craft Chocolate" stores, where they the sell chocolates that have been made from the best and finest ingredients. Basically, it turns the processing of creating chocolate into an art form. The Chocolatiers (a.k.a - the people who make the chocolate) make sure they utilize the natural flavor of the cocoa beans, which will give the best chocolatey taste. A few of the biggest Chocolatiers in the Craft Chocolate UK are: Pump St Chocolate, Duffy’s, Solkiki, Land, and the Seaforth Chocolate Co..

If you don't live in the UK (like me), you don't have to worry, as you there are many places online where you can buy craft chocolate bars.

Yes, my love for chocolate is why I can't lose weight, but chocolate is great to snack on when I'm working on writing projects in the early morning hours or late at night. I can't explain it, but chocolate has a way of lifting the fog from my mind and giving the me ability to concentrate on whatever I'm currently working on.

One of my many talents (if you can call them that) is baking! Yes, I'm a guy who knows how go bake cookies, brownies, cakes, and pies.

Guess what are my favorite ingredient to use!


Well, to be more precisely my two favorite ingredients to bake with are Hershey's Natural Unsweetened Cocoa and Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Chips.

Yes, I know many people prefer Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, but I like Special Dark Chocolate Chips more, as the chips have a richer taste.

My two favorite recipes to bake are chocolate chip cookies and chocolate chip blondies!

Now, I don't bake all the time, so of course I buy candies and cookies from the store (or otherwise known as Walmart!). While there are a lot of candy bars that I do like, my favorites are 3 Musketeers, York Peppermint Candy, Zero bars, Snickers bars and Kit Kat wafer bars. And of course, I also love all kinds of M&M's.

When it comes to store-bought cookies, my absolutely favorite are the espresso cookies from the bakery at Walmart. Whoever came with the idea of adding coffee to cookies is a genius!
