If you are NOT a chocolate lover like me then you probably don’t think thoughts like, “where did I
hide safely tuck away that candy bar” or do things like call EVERYONE I know when said candy bar is no where to be found and accuse them of “stealing” MY candy bar (no really *hanging my head in shame*).
If you are not an obsessive chocoholic like me then you probably don’t know every flavor M&M ever made or make up national holidays just so you have an
excuse plausible reason to make a any form of chocolate dessert and not feel guilty about eating it.
If you don’t think like me then you don’t know approximately one thousand and one
reasons excuses I think of on a daily basis on why my chocolate indulgences are ok. (number 5 being dark chocolate is full of antioxidants and number 119 being if you eat chocolate filled with peanut butter then you are totally getting protein AND antioxidants all in one delicious bite.)
If you ARE a chocolate lover though, then you DO probably think like me and are always thinking how you can incorporate chocolate into E.V.E.R.Y. meal. Breakfast. Lunch. Dinner. Snacks. Appetizers. Drinks. OK! may.be. that’s just me!
But because I do think like that, then I get really excited, no down right giddy when I see meals other than just dessert with chocolate in them. Take this S’mores Oatmeal. NOW THAT’S WHAT I CALL BREAKFAST!!!!. Hearty oatmeal, double chocolate flavor, gooey melted marshmallows, crunchy graham crackers, and HEALTHY (wait how did that word get in there)! I can’t think of a better way to start my morning! How ’bout you?
