Mmmm...What's Your Chocolate?

It's a delicious start to the week as the awesome MPax, Laura Eno, Brinda Berry and Ciara Knight are bringing us the What's Your Chocolate Blogfest. Journey 'round the blogosphere and find out all the tasty treats my fellow participants have in store for you. You can uncover the goodness by clicking here.

Also, I unleashed my werewolf, Maxie Briscoe over at my friend Sloane Taylor's blog today, so head on over and see what she's up to. 

Chocolate makes the world, heck the universe, spin as far as I am concerned. I love it in just about everything. Chocolate milk, chocolate martinis, chocolate cake, chocolate chips, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate...You get the idea. I think my favorite chocolate, though is dark chocolate. Plain, bittersweet, melts- in- my- mouth dark chocolate. I love to eat it in whole bars, chocolate chips, drizzled over fruit and you know, it makes great body paint. Close your mouth, you knew I would put something naughty in here, I am an erotica writer after all. LOL

Dark chocolate is also incredibly good in brownies, ice cream and almond bark. So very many ways to enjoy this gift from the gods. Plus, unlike it's milk cousin, dark chocolate is good for you. It's an antioxidant machine, it prevents arteries from clogging and can reduce blood pressure. Plus, for a diabetic like me, it has a low glycemic index which means it keeps my blood sugar from spiking. How's that for awesome?

So, I wanna know, how do you take your chocolate?

  3. Haven't tasted any chocolate in months. What?! I try to lose some weight, and it's working. Love chocolate though. Love it rich and creamy, with almonds or strawberry filling. I'm a huge fan of white chocolate as well. It's my favorite.

  4. Chocolate is my LIFEBLOOOOD!!!!! :)
    Seriously, I'm quite a chocoholic and there's always some chocolate in my cupboard. Currently I'm pretty addicted to orange-flavored dark chocolate, but I'm also a huge fan of caramel-chocolate, strawberry chocolate, white chocolate, marzipan chocolate, etc etc yada yada... :D

    1. A man after my own heart. I think my blood type is chocolate LOL The orange flavored stuff is great. I like it with chili pepper and cinnamon, too.

    2. Haven't tried cinnamon yet, but chili chocolate is cool. Was very skeptical at first, but then I realized it really tastes great :)

    1. Symphoy bars are wicked awesome! There is just so much chocolatey goodness out there, I love it. :)

  8. I take my chocolate any way possible. I wish I liked dark chocolate more than I do, though (milk chocolate's my preference), but I'm working on developing a preference for it. This means, I need to just keep eating lots of it. Sigh.

    Be well, Melissa. Great choco-post.

    1. Taking your chocolate any which way is perfect. Keep on eating more dark chocolate to see if you like it is a good way to develop a taste for it. I highly recommend this method. :)

      Be well, too, my friend. Hugs!

  10. speaking of erotica, I once watched a film (you will guess the genre) in which a Twix bar was used to fill something other than mouth but let us not got there, the kids are still up :)))

    You know, me gets pimples from chocolate, so I eat it maybe once a month. I don't like it in cakes for some reason,but I hear many people like chocolate but only as a product, not as a material for making other things. I love chocolates filled with fruit fillings, rum and similar naughty versions :) And I love me white chocolate as well.
