I confess...I am hoarding chocolate.
Normally this wouldn't be necessary, seeing as there's no shortage or rationing going on, but in my current deprived state, I feel like it's necessary.
I gave chocolate up for Lent almost seven weeks ago, thinking it would be good for me and it wouldn't be too, too terribly difficult. And honestly, I think I've handled it just fine. But lately items keep popping into my head--items I can't have.
Hot fudge sauce on my vanilla ice cream...
Chocolate chip cookies...
Cadbury Mini Eggs...
Brownies...the brownies alone are a killer.
The list is becoming unwieldy and difficult to ignore.
So I've started hoarding. The following are sitting in my house, just waiting out the days till Easter Sunday:
1 pkg of coconut M&M's--I have to at least try them, right?
1 pkg of Dove chocolate truffles--they're only around at Easter
1 tub of oatmeal raisin dunkers drizzled with white chocolate
1 pkg of Willy Wonka Chocolate Waterfall Individuals--again, how can I not??
2 pkgs of Girl Scout Thin Mints
I also have a recipe sitting front and center on my kitchen counter: Chocolate Marshmallow Cake with Chocolate Satin Frosting.
At this point I'm just hoping I don't barricade myself in my bedroom with all my chocolate goodies on Easter afternoon and proceed to wolf them down in a frenzy of crazed withdrawal. That wouldn't be pretty. I'll try not to do that.
