Moar Chocolate and Toffee!

We were in the last throes of the Spring Semester over at work (a fairly busy time at work), and a couple of colleagues brought over some treats to perk us up (or to celebrate the end of the semester…my memory doesn’t serve me perfectly).

One morning, we saw these Lacey’s Chocolate Toffee wafers with a post-it note saying “Please eat (me)!” I was able to find out later that these toffees were courtesy of one of our Course Reserves colleagues.

Not too long later, Buckeye Blue Devil bought some Confectious Toffee Almond Crunch.

This is what they look like under the hood…

Since Chocolate and Toffee are among my favorite flavor combinations (and yes, chocolate and coffee, too!), I couldn’t pass these up. 😉

A Chocoholic’s Dream…

Within one of the academic buildings at work is an establishment called the Uptown, which has many decadent treats for sale. Unfortunately, I inhaled the eclair that I had from them a few weeks ago before ever taking a picture of it. I made sure to savor the chocolate truffle I had last week.

This was pretty much “death by chocolate” in one little package: fudgy chocolate layers, moist chocolate cake, and chocolate sprinkles… Couldn’t find an ounce that wasn’t chocolate, and given I am a major-league chocoholic, it had me in a great mood for hours.

Thank goodness I make a habit of working out… 😉
