Thursday Thirteen #50

My Favorite Thirteen Forms of Chocolate (Woo Hoo #50!)

I can't handle plain chocolate. It's too rich, sweet, or something, but I love chocolate when it is a part of a greater thing. An ingredient, if you will, instead of the whole.

1. Chocolate Almond Ice Cream - This is probably my favorite flavor of ice cream. I'm a big fan of almonds, and what's the best thing to do with any nut? Put it in chocolate, of course!

2. Snickers Candy Bar - There aren't a lot of candy bars I really like, but Snickers is my favorite. It's got chocolate, but lots of other things too, so it's just pure goodness. Mmmmmm. I also love the next two candy bars.

3. Kit Kat - I have to eat this one in layers. It's a moral imperative. I don't know why.

3. Reeses Peanut Butter Cup - This is almost too rich, but I can handle one little cup.

4. Brownies - I can always eat a brownie. I might be stuffed to the gills, but give me a few minutes, and I will somehow be able to fit in a brownie.

5. German Chocolate Cake - This is the only kind of cake that I can eat the icing as well as the cake. Absolutely delicious.

6. Chocolate Chip Cookies - Another little obsession of mine. I don't like it chock full of chocolate (so to speak) but just enough, and especially if it's chewy.

7. Oreo Cookies - Who doesn't love an Oreo every now and then? I'm not crazy about the filling, I just like the chocolate part. I give the center to my kids, because that's the only part they want. We don't buy them very often, because it wouldn't be good for any of us.

8. Magic Shell - I don't know that the flavor is necessarily the best, but you gotta love how that melted chocolate suddenly becomes a crunchy chocolate shell. Think Dairy Queen.

9. Hot Chocolate - This should've been closer to the top, I guess. It's cousin, chocolate milk, is also always acceptable.

10. Ice Cream Sandwiches - Especially the Mississippi Mud variety. I absolutely can't get enough of these. I only buy them once a year or so, because I know I can't control myself once they're in the house.

11. Texas Pie - I've heard others (those from Texas) call it Ice-Box Pie or Refrigerator Pie. This is a crust of crumblies and nuts and so forth with chocolate pudding, vanilla pudding and cool whip layered on top.

12. Chocolate Mint Cookies - Delivered by the Girl Scouts or the Keebler Elves. Either way they're great with a big glass of milk.

13. Chocolate covered pretzels - Not almond bark, although that's OK in a pinch. Just melted chocolate.

Yum! Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite - but only when made with my dad's recipe. :)

Hi, I am Rick and I am a chocoholic. Great list. I had a desert some time ago that was called "Death By Chocolate". It tops my list.
