Since I was a little girl, Chocolate used to be my number one thing. Whether it was at home, or visiting family homes, family friends homes, When they used to put out chocolate, I couldn’t help but snag a few bites of chocolate. Its so good! I love so many types of chocolate, but one isn’t really my cup of tea and they say Dark Chocolate is the best and its good for you, but I beg to differ. Everytime I eat Dark Chocolate, I get this really funny aftertaste in my mouth and I don’t enjoy it at all. If its Milk Chocolate like Hersheys, Cadbury, and with Almonds its all good with me. I love the reese Chocolate peanut butter cups too. Its so delicious.
I love Chocolate cake, Chocolate Fudge, Chocolate Syrup, Chocolate Ice Cream, the Mousse, I sometimes make Chocolate cake and I make a little extra so as I can eat the Chocolate Cake batter. I love eating Cake Batter or Raw Cookie dough. It is so good. I know people say that there are raw eggs in it, but it has never effected me. I just eat it and I know its so many calories and stuff, but I just cannot help it. I love it.
Once in my cooking/baking class back in High School, we made a huge batch of Chocolate Chip cookies and I remember when the other people in my group weren’t looking, I used to eat the Chocolate Chip cookie dough with the Chips in it and it was sooooo good. They never caught me which was the fun part. LOL. We made a whole bunch so they didn’t even notice the Raw dough was even touched or eaten. Even the teacher didn’t see.
Now, Nutella is my ultimate fave. I love that stuff and they say that Nutella spreads a whole lot of energy and the hazelnuts and stuff in it are good for you and it is nutritious. Whenever I eat it, I feel so energetic and better throughout my day. Whenever I go shopping for groceries, Nutella is one of the things I get and when it comes home, It barely lasts a week or two. Now I am not one of those who puts a very thin thin layer of Nutella on my Pita Bread, Toast or Bagel, I love to add a lot more and actually taste the Nutella. Its such an awesome invention. I just love the rich, incredible taste to it and the smoothness. I once made a Nutella Frosting Cake and The whole cake was eaten in a matter of 2 days. I made it the day of and gone the next day by my family.
In a few blogs that I will post in the future will be all about CHOCOLATE this, CHOCOLATE that. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by 🙂
My mouth is watering….:-)
Thank you for the ‘like’..The holiday season is wonderful for chocolate..I like rich..deep chocolate..white..dark..regular..all delicous. Finding a true faith..your path, not just a God to hold responsible, is wonderful. I do hope you have the happiest of holidays. 🙂 Peace Tony
Your article is very interesting and tempting. The last thing I really need right now is chocolates to add to my weight problem. Can you do a post about beer? Now that’s something I can drink to after all it’s what contributed to my weight problems now. But I’m happy Talin:)
I LOVE chocolate!!!!!! But I agree, Dark chocolate is bitter to me. Don’t like it at all. My favorite is Dove chocolate!! Aww man, now I want some chocolate!
Oh, I love Nutella! I didn’t discover it until I was in my twenties!! It’s such a treat first thing in the morning on toast. Now I have to go out and buy some… 🙂
Nutella Frosting Cake? That sounds wonderful!
I’m a chocoholic from way back 🙂
I just finished wrapping a couple of very large boxes of chocolates (Christmas Presents) for friends that also love chocolate, and I can tell you it was not easy. 😆
Thanks for liking my post…Go Nutella and chocolate chip cookies!
I am a choco-holic and this post made me want to lick my screen!!!
True confession: I’ve NEVER had Nutella!! It always sounded so weird to me, but if you – another chocolate freak – are speaking so highly about it, that’s it! I’m getting some.
Janece, Nutella is yummmmmm. I could eat it straight from the jar, but that would be wrong and such a bad example for my children…only if I get caught!
I’m with you! Go the chocaholics – all that is good is chocolate!
You can never go wrong with chocolate my friend. 🙂
Nutella is my best friend:)
I agree about the dark chocolate though I will eat it time to time! I love chocolate and Nutella too, as well as my kids. It becomes costly with 5 kiddos but Nutella is good for them though. 😉
My daughter loves Nutella!
Hi Talin. My husband is crazy for chocolate. When we were in Italy, he and the kids ordered the Nutella gelato again and again. Fun to read your blog. Keep up the good work!
love nutella. I just get a spoonful and eat it when I have a chocolate craving. 🙂 Or I put it on top of the banana for each bite…so each bite has a bit of nutella with it. yum
O.K. Valentine’s Day is less than 2 months away, so you girls will get all the chocolate you want.
I used to be afraid of Nutella until someone finally convinced me to try it – I was so missing out!
We hardly bother anymore with the delivery system for our Nutella…we just use our spoons. However, if you want a treat, buy some croissants and put Nutella in them and then bake…..yum!
Oh I have a sweet tooth as well. Nutella and condensed milk are undoubtedly my favourites.
I have to eat chocolate everyday! I do not care for the dark chocolate, but I will eat it if there is not any other type of chocolate around. Nice post!
Reblogged this on Homecoming.
Wow, I just had nutella on wheat thins this morning as I rushed out the door to work. It got me through, too. 🙂
I agree with you about dark chocolate……I LOVe truffles by LIndt…They are so creamy in the inside II melt even thinking about it!!
Hahaha! I’m laughing because I ABSOLUTELY could have written every word of this post, myself!
Chocolate and nutella… some of the greatest stuff on the planet!
I had personally never tried Nutella until a few months ago. My daughter had eaten it at her sitter’s and begged me to buy some. I thought I had heard where it was somewhat nutritious so I figured I’d give it a shot. Now it’s one of my favorite snacks, and I can’t let it run out without picking up a new jar!!
CHOCOLATE…I JUST LOVE IT, AS MUCH AS I LOVE IT I HAVE TO STAY AWAY FROM IT TO WATCH THE CALORIE LEVEL. I LOVE ALL KIND OC CHOCOLATES ALTHOUGH I DO AGREE WITH TALIN, I DON’T PARTICULARLY ENJOY DARK CHOCOLATE EITHER, MY FAVORITE IS KIT KAT, COCONUT AND FEW OTHERS WITH LIQUOR IN IT
I’m working on finding some delicious nutella baked goods. I got distracted by Christmas cookies, but this is a good reminder! 🙂
Ya Im a huge chocolate fan!!!
“Hand over the chocolate and nobody gets hurt” My license plate frame, given to me by my kids! 🙂
Hi Talin, I love the post, and I just want to let you know you are included in my list of Versatile Blogger Award recipients! 🙂
seems delicious, please visit my blogs
I just enjoyed some raw chocolate chip cookie dough last night for the first time in forever. It was awesome! Chocolate is an absolute drug to my wife and me. And we are sooo addicted!
My daughter is a chocolate fan. Though, I dont know the varieties but my doughter would love to have some yumyum taste of it.
Yum! My daughter make a stuff Nutella white chocolate strawberries. They are yumm too. I have them on the treat tab at my blog if you are interested.
I want to go bake a chocolate cake now…love the post 🙂
I am also a chocolate lover! I’m in the dark team though, but i love nutella too..
Thanks for dropping my blog!
I agree – some of the dark chocolate can be too bitter. My favorite dark chocloate is Ghiradelli Espresso bars…I also love the dark chocolate and raspberry squares. Yum!
Now I want chocolate…
If you love chocolate very much, you should come to Belgium 🙂
Not particularly a Nutella fan but I’m a total chocolate addict!
I’m a chocoholic too and like you, I love eating chocolate cake batter. I used to fight with my brother when we were kids over the batter each time my mom baked chocolate cake 🙂
I know Nutella! I see the bottles sold in shops here.
Ive been meaning to pop over and say hi to you 🙂 We could definately be friends, since you love Nutella as much as I do! LOL! My baby shower cake was filled with Nutella, I love it that much! HAHAHA!
Alas the misfortunes of Chocolate and the extensive waistline, and the disapproving looks from my GP. Perhaps I may indulge (covertly). Wonderful blog 🙂
I LOVE Dark Chocolate! I think you just need to find the right one for you! many dark chocolates come flavored with fruit, like orange, or raspberry. Do you like any of those?
I’m addicted to Justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter. As far as I’m concerned, it’s the vegan version of Nutella. They also make chocolate almond butter and AMAZING peanut butter cups. Okay now I have to go have some. NOM!
I was recently introduced to Nutella and now have it in my cabinet. Family members that are staying with us for the holidays are addicted to this culinary treat. You gave me a good chuckle first thing this morning!
🙂 I can so relate to this topic 🙂
I really luv ur website. Being 20 days old to blogging I am at the point where I’m not sure how much I want to share about my private life. What I adore about ur writing is how u let everything flow. So wish me luck for the next few blogs! 🙂
PS: Keep writing
This post is like a dream…or a nightmare, because I don’t have any chocolate right now! lol It’s definitely a divine gift, and it comes in so many lovely forms!
wow we really think alike. For your enjoyment, here’s one of my posts on chocolate: http://imlikingit.wordpress.com/2011/10/27/chocolate-is-a-cure-all/, and here’s the link to one I’ll be posting soon on nutella no-bake cookies: http://www.myfabulousrecipes.com/2011/12/13/nutella-no-bake-cookies/
The worlds a better place with Nutella 😉 Love it! Nomnomnom!
I never liked dark chocolate as a kid…now I LOVE IT!
Thanks for liking my calendar Perl 6 article. Just a tip: maybe you cant get “rapunzel” out of Germany but it whole league above Nutella IMO. Since i know these and some other organic nut-choc-creames I stopped looking for nutella.
I am eating a Godiva dark chocolate rasberry filled bar right now… Mmmmm… and saw your post. Grew up with Nutella but don’t eat too much of it now. Guess I lost the desire for those “nutricious” sandwiches I made as a kid!
Chocolate shakes and vanilla ice cream with (homemade) chocolate fudge sauce are my favorites!!
Just imagine this:
I am allergic to chocolate
My husband refers to himself as a chocolate slut.
Hello – from one chocolate fan to another! Candy I can do without – but not the creamy sweetness of a Lindt chocolate bar 🙂
I too love chocolate but prefer the dark variety. I also have an affinity for M&Ms, with peanuts/

Love it, love the post. Love the love for chocolate. So many people deny themselves chocolate, you embrace chocolate and all its yummyness. Choc bake batter is amazing. 🙂
Confession: I’ve sucked the chocolate syrup straight from the container. And then followed it up with a squirt from the whipped cream can. No dishes to wash ;o
If people ate more chocolate and fought less wars, it would be a much better place for all of us…!
Thanks for visiting my site, and happy holidays!
Love chocolate–and now I’ve got to try Nutella. (Yes, I am one of those rare ones that has never had it. LOL!)
Ok. I’m going to try Nutella.My husband loves it but I have always stuck with chocolate,unlike you, preferably Dark. Loved the post.
I’m having chocolate chip cookies as I write, YUM!
Chocolate is the favorite at our place (the convent). As there are varieties of chocolates, people like all sorts. Some like milk chocolate like you while others the dark, like me. Some cannot have just one and others take one a day, so it can last…like me. Once someone gave me Lady Godiva’s chocolate and it was so good it lasted 2 months.
I LOVE Nutella!!! SOOOO goooood. Chocolate has gotten better to me over time. Now there is hardly anything I enjoy more than a brownie, choc chip cookie, or nutella on toast. MmmMmmm
If you’re a chocoholic, check out the Love by Chocolate book series by Zelda Benjamin: http://zeldabenjamin.com/
Ohmigod. I’m hungry now. Kinda scared of what might happen after more chocolate posts…you’re such an amazing blogger, Talin. 🙂
Did someone mention chocolate… I LOVE chocolate! Just had 3lbs of Steven Libs chocolate pecan flip overs delivered and I’m in heaven. Thanks you for visiting my Art blog and I hope you visit again. Until artbyrhayes.com is complete you can also visit my other blog at asmalltowndad.wordpress.com, for my art, and views on life. Thanks!
I really enjoyed your article, I am a huge Nutella fan and of course a larger fan of Chocolate! (Godiva chocolate, of course!)
I am also a chocoholic =) a little bit of chocolate everyday brings color to the cheeks!
Just bought a jar of Nutella the other day. I feel so guilty when I do it because I know it’s a goner! Love it on sliced bananas or strawberries…
my dream come true!!! cant wait for all the chocolate posts!
Great Stuff! I love reading about yuminess! Thank you so much for reading my post today and I hope you will remain a reader. We seem to have much in common in the kitchen.
Love, love chocolate!!
I dislike dark chocolate too. – Joshua
There’s nothing on earth like the combination of chocolate and peanuts! I don’t like dark chocolate either. Thanks for the like on my blog!
Like you, I cannot pass up chocolate. If you can create a food pyramid that’s based on chocolate, you could probably make a fortune. Cheers!
I used to be the same way. I always hated dark chocolate and was a hersheys milk chocolate girl through and through…until about 6 months ago. Something happen and those preferences flip flopped! I now only like dark chocolate and am even turned off by the smell of a milk chocolate hershey bar. It’s so bizarre!!!
love your this post! I’m a chocolate lover too , it really makes me happy… love hershey’s w/ almonds, milk chocolates, butterfinger and kitkat
and just like you, i never like dark chocolates… 🙂
Wife and I are split on dark chocolate. She totally agrees with you. I am a tad more tolerant of it although I certainly wouldn’t “pig out” on it like milk chocolate…in ALL and EVERY way it can be “delivered” to me. Chocolate = Happy!
I LOVE chocolate. Like you I like all kinds. Except one. I do not like White Chocolate, I never have. It is so rich it makes my stomach queasy and I have never understood the fact that people like it so much. I, on the other hand, love Dark Chocolate. 🙂 It is one of my favorites! Chocolate is just good, period. 😉
Hi 🙂 I also LOOOOOOOOVE chocolate. I actually really like dark chocolate; it’s my favourite type of chocolate.
Also, thank you for liking my blog posts and following it. I really appreciate it 😀
I will confess…..I have been eating Nutella since I was a child (it’s a staple for Italian kids) but the way I have always eaten it, and still do, is to dispense with the bread altogether, and savor it straight from the spoon. Heavenly! And this is from a Pastry Chef who swears by dark chocolate! I even figured out a way to make it so I can avoid the preservatives…
I love Nutella as well! But ever since i moved into my own home, i’ve been giving Nutella with bread a miss. I don’t even know why…
Recently, the wife updated our fb status: “H: Right now, i feel like… eating nutella from the jar! Just me, the spoon and nutella!” Cute.
Anyway, thanks for following! Great post!
I m totally addicted to Nutella ! 😀
mmm…yes to chocolate!
i have not tried nutella, though i have friends who adore it (like you). one of these days i’ll have to give it a try. i hear it’s dangerous 😉
I can totally relate! I love Nutella so much, I’ve even dipped potato chips in it. Sounds gross, I know, but that was actually pretty good. 😀
You should check out the blog, Two Peas and Thier Pod, because they have some great recipes with Nutella! I loved their Pumpkin Nutella Bread!
Last year each of my children got their own jar of nutella in their Christmas stocking. my youngest had finished his before the end of the day lol!
Nutella Frosting Cake sounds divine!! Thanks for all the “likes.” Merry Christmas!
Funny… I love dark chocolate, and it makes your mouth taste weird 🙂
I loooove Chocolate! and obviously nutella! IMO the best way to eat nutella is all on its own…. straight from the jar with a spoon ( or not!).
check out how climate change and environmental degradation are affecting even our chocolate habits! http://ecocred.me/2011/10/07/how-climate-change-and-will-affect-your-theobromine-addiction/
Its horrible and i hope we can make sure that there is a steady supply of chocolate for us choco-holics!!
Oh my word, I LOVE Nutella! Happy Holidays 🙂
You CANNOT know how much I MISS Nutella! At 43, I developed a vicious allergy to all tree nuts and can’t have it anymore. [tears] It makes ordering in restaurants a huge pain also. [more tears] I’ll eat Nutella vicariously through this post! Thanks for stopping by my blog today 🙂
Have you seen the little to-go Nutella with cracker-like sticks? OMG! So good.
iamy iamy 🙂 🙂 i love chocolate 🙂
HA! I think I might have to join Nutella-aholics Anonymous some day….
Chocolate ‘dreams’! Nice!
I resonate with your chocolate musings… if you and your followers would like, I will happily share some amazing Nutella recipes I’ve made or collected. Besides taking dictation for Jet’s blog, I actually write my own Kitchen Counselor Blog. http://www.thekitchencounselor.org/blog
Happy and Chocolatey New Year!
