Happy almost-Valentine’s Day, everyone! I know not everyone celebrates it, but for those who do, it can be a fun holiday. And since I’m a sucker for sweets, especially of the chocolate variety, I have to ask: What are your favorite candies for Feb. 14?
I adore, adore, adore See’s chocolates (based in/near San Francisco)!
Used to be the butterscotch squares were their sweets of choice for me, but at some point they just got a little TOO sweet, so now I’m head over heels for the milk
Alas, since I’ve been on this weight-loss campaign, See’s doesn’t fit in too well. I did get
a box before Christmas and have allowed myself one milk bordeaux a week, just to
keep the cravings at bay. DH asked me what I wanted for the holiday, and I think I’m getting
a manicure or pedicure (which is great pampering and no calories or fat). I’m
getting him some tea that he loves and also some fancy craft beer that he’s been craving; my son really likes Lindor chocolate truffles and Hershey’s Cookies and Cream candy bars, so he’s covered with those.
So please do share what your most beloved sweets are (and sweet and/or chocolate fragrances as well). My all-time favorite gourmand is the now sadly discontinued Guerlain’s Iris Ganache, which was white-chocolate heaven to me.
Hope everyone has a great day!!
