Most of the time, I claim to have no sweet tooth. I do not drool when there is a bowl full of chocolates sitting right in front of me. But come holidays, my sweet tooth magically appears from nowhere.
I am not sure if it is the festive atmosphere or the yummiest variety of chocolates that can be seen all around you – in stores, at coworkers desk or in your child’s Halloween candy bag chocolate stash.
Whatever it is, I have to satisfy my craving for a delicious chocolate. If that is baked chocolate in form of chocolate chip cookies or red velvet crinkle cookie, you won’t hear me complaining. No Wayyyyy!!!
I love the fresh baked chocolate smell that comes out of the oven when these chocolate goodies are being made.
