Death By Chocolate! Name your Poison :)

Whether is dark and dreamy, smooth and creamy, sweet and smooth or just plain and pure we all love some kind of chocolate!
Name your poison :)
A favourite or many favourites. Ways you enjoy them just bring it!

I would have to put Lindt Intense Orange first on my list. The bitter sweet smooth as silk chocolate with a burst of Citrus just floats my boat.

If it's a whole box I'm after I would choose Cote D'Or Pralines. Any kind, nior, blanc or Noisettes. Just love them all! Or a nice big box of Anthon Berg Liqueur Chocolate Bottles. Yum Yum!
When I just want cheap and cheerful I will Go for Aero (just love those tiny bubbles) or a simple Twix bar.

Love a mug of white hot chocolate infused with warm spices and spiked with a bit of whiskey on a cold night or Creamy whole hazelnut chocolate sauce over a scoop of pure vanilla ice cream in summer!

Last month I found a powdered hot chocolate mix that had peppermint stick chips mixed in.

It's supposed to be made with water, but I made it with some extra half and half.

I also love a Reece's Peanut Butter Cup.

They're a bit hard to find these days, but my favorite is dark chocolate lemon creams.

Lindt hands down! Dang they are good! Ran into a store in a mall in NJ, (free samples), got some at Costco in Chicago, got an assortment, gave some away as gifts and stocking stuffers, and snarfed down the rest. Have been going through Lindt withdrawals since November.
