Default What is your favorite way to eat chocolate? Brand? Type?


Here is an important question...

Long has it been pondered and hotly debated which method, presentation and manner is best for consuming the most desired food of all...


....chocolate....

So now, it remains to be seen: What is your favorite way to indulge?

For me: Let's see.

Well, I make a really mean French Silk Pie. (I have a recipe if anyone wants )

Also mint chip ice cream is one of my favorites.

And frozen MnMs. I like MnMs, but they're better frozen.

Of course, my very favorite is Ghiradelli or Godiva chocolates filled with either mint cream or caramel.

If I'm lucky, I might even find a really good cherry cordial!

Your turn!

Mmm, those sound so good, Lyn! I brought lots of good chocolates when I came home from Germany, one was blueberry and lavender and the others had orange peel. I wish I had a chocolate store, too.

Here's a secret: I have a stash of chocolates in my closet

My all time favourite would have to be Liquor Cherry Dark Chocolates. For those who don't know they are whole glace cherries soaked in cherry liquor and then they are put into dark chocolate casing.

My regular is Nestle Club Dark Chocolate Peppermint cream. The peppermint cream is lovely and runny. I also like glace ginger coated with dark chocolate. As you can see I love dark chocolate and much prefer it to milk chocolate. I also like the Rum and Raisin that Lyn likes. About the only milk chocolate I eat is Cadbury Snack, it has different flavoured fillings of runny cream mainly, with fillings of Orange, Strawberry, Pineapple, Caramel and Cherry and Turkish Delight. Which is another that I rather like, Turkish Delight either coated with Chocolate or without.

Excellent question!

My absolute favourite way to indulge in this particular sin is thus:

In a very tall mug:
2 BIG tbsp of 100% cocoa powder (the better the quality the yummier the result)
1 normal tbsp of raw sugar
1 heavy sprinkle of cinnamon
1 little sprinkle of allspice
1 reasonable sprinkle of very hot pepper powder (at the moment I use some sent by my sister who lives in Africa)
A few drops of pure, natural vanilla essence
A generous dash of dark rhum
Very slowly pour boiling water while stirring continuously so as to avoid lumps.

Drink.
One may wish to add a little bit of butter or some full-fat, un-homogenised organic milk.

I try not not make it more than once a week but it's hard

I like milk chocolate with strawberry filling and dark chocolate with orange and lemon peel I also like to make a frozen dessert, based on cookies and add different types of chocolate In my country we can get easily german, swiss and english chocolate bars but I prefer the greek ones, like Paulidi or ION. When I went to Germany I discovered that greek chocolates are slightly sweeter!
Chocolate is my fiance's favourite, but I like most custard-like desserts

Kate C, you have described to perfection the Mon Chéri bonbons by Ferrero.
Are you familiar with those?


Okay, this is going to be a long one...
On chocolate candy bars and bars of chocolate I prefer the chocolate milk type.
I like the Milka brand (milka caramel, and daim caramel) and Nestlé. My favourite mainstream chocolate candy bars are Twix (love the combination of milk chocolate, caramel and biscuit), Kinder Bueno by Ferrero, Kit Kat, Toffee Crisp, Lion, Snickers.
For the more expensive chocolate, I like the Belgium kind from Guylian, the chocolate seashells with praliné filling are my favourite.

I also like chocolate ice cream as long as the flavour is not too overpowering (no double chocolate ice cream).

Onto cookies, I love the chocolate chip ones. My two all time favourites are the Maryland chocolate chip cookies (the one with the red wrapper) and the ones from Milka.

I love chocolate chip muffins and chocolate muffins with no choc chips, marble cake is one of my favourites too.

I could go on and on with breakfast cereals, but I think it's best to stop now.

Oh my mouth is watering reading this thread! I LOVE chcolate

So much to choose from but I'll try to keep it brief

Firstly Kate thank you for reminding me of how much I love the dark chocolate peppermint creme!! It's been years since I've had one

A regular favourite is malteesers ... Yum
Close behind is snickers
I've also recently been introduced to a battered mars bar - can't say I'm a fan of the batter (it's a bit too filling) but the melted mars bar is amazing!! So a home made version is microwaved mars bar with no batter

I'm not a fan of ice cream at all, BUT, I do have a soft spot for Ben and Jerrys chocolate fudge brownie......yuuuuuuumeeeee - but it has to be the Ben & Jerrys brand.
Better still is when it's accompanied by chocolate brownies - I love everything about this dessert

But my absolute favourite that cannot be beaten is a Max Brenner hot chocolate - either classic or white chocolate.


StarlingWings what have you done!!!! Lol I'm supposed to be dieting and now all I can think of is chocolate!!
Luke has even learned the hard way not go try and come between me and chocolate!! He tried to hide it on me one day and I've never seen him return something so fast!!

I haven't seen the Mon Cheri Ana, don't know if they are available over here. But I will be on the look out for them. Liquor Cherry Chocolates have been very difficult to get over here in recent years and when they are around they are quite expensive. I had a field day last year when Aldi had them in stock for over a month over the Christmas/New Year period.

I am very restrained when it comes to chocolate. I buy a block of the Nestle Peppermint a fortnight and I only have 2 pieces at night when I have a cup of coffee. I have just had my ration for today and am now drinking my coffee.

I had also forgotten about Bueno, I just love the mix of hazelnut cream, wafer and chocolate. Also Malteesers love them too.
