G is for Ginormous Sweet Tooth

Yeah, I know, you probably figured this one out yourselves. Its not like you could tell from my blog title.  But seriously, I will rarely turn down a sweet treat. And if I do, you should probably rush me to the ER.

I have a ginormous sweet tooth. I even thought (for only a few seconds and then I realized Mr. Groom probably wouldn't come.) of having a chocolate themed wedding.

Because of my ginormous sweet tooth (and the fact that its a stress reliever)I love to bake. Unfortunately, Mr. Groom isn't big on sweets so I've got to find others to share my treats with lest I gain my weight in chocolate. No thank you.

Here are some of my favorite types of treats:

Cookie: chocolate chip. Seriously, sometimes I suck down the store bough frozen dough before it can even make it to the oven

Ice cream: rocky road or moosetracks. Suprinsingly enough, I don't like plain chocolate ice cream. It tastes funny.

Cake: Chocolate with cream cheese icing or Italian Cream Cake or German Chocolate. Also, I love the key lime pie cupcakes I made that one time.

Cheesecake: Again, not really chocolate. I like the regular cheesecake topped with cherries. Mmmm.

Milkshake: Chocolate pineappple. Sonic doesn't list this flavor combo on their menu but they will make it if you order it. Go try it and tell me what you think.

Random: SMORES. I absolutely adore smores. Two of my favorite things- chocolate and marshmallows. I recently heard of someone making smores with reese cups. Have you ever? I think I might try it.

Hard candy: Werthers Orginals and Jolly ranchers. Thats about it. Unless peanut butter M&Ms count?

Non hard candy: Riesens-although I haven't had them in years.

What are your favorite sweet treats?


  1. Got a thing for Milk Duds later; Kroger shouldn't lead me into temptation by selling boxes of them for $1. Hard to go wrong with chocolate cupcakes! Pecan pie ... chocolate pecan pie is even better. Banana pudding with the vanilla wafers. Snickers and Milky Way bars. Chocolate-covered peanut butter-filled pretzels. I could go on and on and on, but I'm already late for work! I have a brownie recipe, but not enough time to type it out for you right now. If I don't get home too late or fall asleep too early (a loved one got admitted to the hospital last night, and I got home after 3 a.m. and need to visit later), I will send it along ....

  2. I love chocolate pecan pie. How did I leave out the pie category? Those pretzels sound amazing- you don't happen to have a recipe for those do you? I hope your loved one is healing quickly. No rush on the brownies- I won't be home until August but wanted to ask while it was on my mind.

  3. Well hello my sister from another mother! We are meant to be blog buddies...look at our blog names! So totally following you and thanks for following me :)

  4. New follower :) loved reading up on all your recipe posts

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for making me hungry! I love my moms recipe's for homemade chocolate chip cookies and chocolate pudding. And her chocolate cheesecake (sinful!)

  6. mmm - you are making me really hungry reading about all of this chocolate!! I am a chocoholic as well :) Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  7. Ahh... following you now that I know you're a SUPER sweet fanatic! My faves are chocolate lava-type cakes with the hot fudge filling that oozes out when you stick a fork in it, lemon flavored deserts, visits to Cold Stone creamery always make me happy, I like mixed berry pies with vanilla icecream, iced mochas, starbursts and skittles, dark chocolate, pretzel, and strawberried peanut butter m&ms, and plain cheesecake. Basically, I'll try anything sweet :) I tried a slice of the raspberry cream cheese loaf at Starbucks yesterday and nearly died. It was AMAZING.
