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 :D)

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! :rolleyes:

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 :giggle:

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...:rolleyes:
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. :eek:

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

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

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 :eek:

A regular favourite is malteesers ... Yum :D
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 :laughing2:

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. :D


StarlingWings what have you done!!!! Lol I'm supposed to be dieting and now all I can think of is chocolate!! :D
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!! :laughing:

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.

I love any good quality dark chocolate. I like dark chocolate covered orange peel. My grandmother used to have that around all the time so I grew up with an affinity for it. I make a double chocolate brownie with Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate chips that is really good and I have a recipe for bittersweet hot fudge that is really yummy!:p

The Mon Chéri is easily bought here on most supermarkets, however it is only distributed seasonally in winter time around Christmas.

Yes, Kinder Bueno is my second favourite right after Twix and we have it year round! :)

It's a good thing during Summer I don't really crave all the chocolaty goodness, I would rather eat ice cream than a chocolate bar.
Then again there is the Twix ice cream and the Snickers ice cream and those are great! Not to mention the whole range of Milka ice creams out there...:D

Oops! :eek: Oh, well, tell your diet that dark chocolate has many anti-flavonoids, even more than red wine, which helps to lower cholesterol :rolleyes:

Your post made me hungry! I love peppermint cremes, they're lovely! Brownies are heavenly :p

Ooh, a rationing system! That's a good idea, Kate. When I was little and still went trick-or-treating for Halloween I used to ration my chocolates and try and get them to last until New Years :giggle:

I love Hershey's Almond and I love Milka brand too. Any combination of nuts and chocolate is best for me.
My ultimate favorite - Nutella!!
Mmm....Dee, those sound good ;) Nutella tastes good on waffles :rolleyes:
Yes..If I had a nutella ice cream right now,that would be great :D
STop it Despina I don't have any and now I want some :eek:

Looks like Deb's got it sorted :giggle: Wow, all of those are making my mouth water! All of those are my favorite too, judging by the names of them :rolleyes:

Kit Kat Chunky! mmmmmm I have one on my desk that's been staring at me all day that I might have to partake in!

I also enjoy any sort of chocolate in cake form, caramel slice or brownie.

Star what is a French Silk pie?! :S
Ooh, sounds good! A French Silk Pie...how to describe it?

It has a wonderful, crispy, chocolate wafer crust, and the filling is a thick, creamy, chocolate custard and usually it is topped with whipped cream ;)
It tastes like heaven and unfortunately I could eat it all day :giggle:
