Chocolate Treats

When it comes to sweets I don't think there's anything that can remotely beat a nice piece of chocolate, or a well-composed chocolate dessert. The perfect amount - that is not too little, not too much - of chocolate most always gives perspective to problems that needs to be solved and can soothe, at least momentarily, a broken heart.

In fact, I'd even go as far as to say chocolate might be the ultimate solution to many of the world's problems in this day and age, chocolate, the great mediator and mender. Chocolate is wellness for the soul. Chocolate makes you happy. Chocolate makes you kind, peaceful and harmonious. The right amount that is. Not too little, and not too much. Just the perfect piece of it.

Here are three different kinds that have demanded my attention this past month -

Chocolate truffle cake on brownie, Chokladfabriken (the Chocolate Factory). Pretty nice, nothing spectacular, just - chocolate to be shared. Spectacular though, as usual, is their hot cocoa. The best I've had ever, and I suspect ever will have. I stay happy for days and days after having one of those. Kind of. And you can chose from white, light or dark chocolate plus whipped cream or marshmallow, have it your very own way.

Chocolate truffle, Puss & Kram (Kiss & Hug). This was a lovely wee one, perfect in size, consistency and flavour. And so pretty.

Cointreau chocolate ball, Chokladfabriken - the Friday night treat, and such a treat it was. Simply heavenly. The kind of treat that somehow feels very wicked and makes you feel guilty for no obvious reason. Divine.
