I know there are thousands of chocolate lovers out there. I happen to be one of those people and have tried several different chocolate treats in my lifetime. So what do I consider to be the top chocolate treats? I find that there are several different chocolate treat categories and there are treats in each category that are better than all the rest. For the sake of budget, this article will stick to foods you can buy in almost any grocery store. These chocolate treats are low in price but high in taste.
CandyBars: We’ve all tried several varieties of this chocolate treat, but which ones are the best? Throughout my life, my tastes have changed and I’ve had several different favorites in this chocolate treat category; everything from Reese’s Cups to Zero Bars. Today though, my favorite chocolate treat in this category is the Milky Way. For those of you who haven’t had a Milky Way, it’s a wonderful combination of milk chocolate, gooey caramel, and wonderfully sweet nougat.
Ice Cream: Let’s face it, just plain chocolate ice cream is wonderful, but the flavors that go above and beyond are the best. This chocolate treat seems to be everyone’s favorite dessert. When we’re talking ice cream, I prefer Ben & Jerry’s. There are several great chocolate ice creams made by Ben & Jerry’s including The Gobfather (which is a chocolate ice cream with nougat swirls, and chocolate covered almonds), Brownie Batter (brownie batter ice cream with a brownie batter swirl), Chocolate Fudge Brownie (chocolate ice cream with huge hunks of fudgy brownies), they even have plain chocolate, but the ultimate chocolate treat in this category is New York Super Fudge Chunk. This ice cream is chocolate based with white and dark chocolate chunks, chocolate covered almonds, walnuts, and pecans. Just reading the description will make you drool.
Cookies: When most people think of this treat, they think of Oreo’s. That is after all, America’s favorite cookie. But what if you could take that cookie one step further in chocolaty goodness? Dip those bad boys in some chocolate and you have the ultimate chocolate cookie. You can either buy them this way, or make them yourself. I prefer to make them myself. You can melt up some chocolate, mix in some crushed peppermint candies, and take the cookies over-the-top.
Snack Cakes: Is there a snack cake that isn’t good? If there is, I haven’t found it. When it comes to chocolate snack cakes, there are so many good treats to be found. While I like them all, there is one that cannot be beat. Snow Balls! Those chocolate cakes, covered with a layer of marshmallow than sprinkled with that beautiful pink coconut. If you haven’t tried one of these, you really must. They are delicious.
Candies: When you think of loose chocolate candies, does anything come to mind? More than likely, you’re thinking of those delicious candies that melt in your mouth and not in your hand. M&M’s are a wonderful chocolate treat. There are so many flavors. While I love the peanut butter M&M’s, my absolute favorite are the white chocolate ones.
While there are several other chocolate treat categories, these are some of the best. I hope this article made you drool, if only a little, for some of these wonderful chocolate treats. Get out there and try new treats, you never know what will become your next favorite.
