There are no 12 step programs available, no support group meetings. It’s the rush, the thrill, you take a small bite and it rushes to your brain, What a feeling, you know it, I dream about it. It’s chocolate!
Forrest Gum said it best, “my momma always said, life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get.” But the plus is you still get chocolate. It’s a versatile rush coming in the form of cake, brownies, cookies and candy. Sometimes a combination of those at the same time. Expensive or cheap, I love it all.
Last week I made a 4 layer milk chocolate cake with buttercream icing and chocolate chips. It was gone, to say the least almost as quick as it took to make it!
Chocolate is a wonderful drug. It’s comfort food, soothing to the senses. The smell alone makes your mouth water.
A friend of mine recently went to Pigeon Forge to Paula Dean’s new restaurant and had a wonderful meal. It was what she brought back that had me hooked. My friend had brought back what looked like a pound of butter with Paula Deans picture on it. When did Paula Dean start making butter? Then I read the package, it was four quarter pounds of chocolate. You can slice it as thick or thin as you would like. Or you can eat it the Miss Princess way, unwrap and devour.
Life is short, eat more chocolate. It’s pretty simple, as life should be.
Hope it made you smile. Love you mean it.
