chocolate confessions photo by parl Chocolate covered fruit--strawberries, bananas, cherries--turns the mouth into a festival of delight! Just yummy. I promise you a frozen banana covered in chocolate tates better than ice cream! I kid you not!! Speaking of ice cream, even though I confessed the other day that I would prefer green tea ice cream to chocolate ice cream, I must explain the reason why. Don't get me wrong. Just like most every woman, I enjoy chocolate in a myriad of forms, but I prefer rich dark chocolate. Milk chocolate bars, chocolate flavored puddings, or even chocolate ice cream do not satisfy like a small, hard square of dark chocolate melting slowly in my mouth. I'm talking 60-80% coca here ladies. Pure delight! I'll make another confession too, my favorite Sonic treat is not even on the menu: a hot fudge shake. Sounds like an oxymoron right? But it is the richest, chocolatiest shake I've ever had. It is like I am finally allowed to just drink hot fudge. :) Oh, and as long as I am making confessions . . . one more. Chocolate chips are just too wonderful to be put into cookies. :) Last year, I took back to Taiwan with me a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips to bake with. Not one of those delicious morsels made it into a baked treat, but they did all get eaten. I am so thankful that God choose to give us coco beans and that some smart people decided to make them into chocolate. Can you imagine what the banquet foods in heaven will be like? I am sure my confession that dark chocolate is "pure delight" will seem silly and overstated as we drink in His presence.
