    Default Favorite sweets

    What is your favorite sweet junk food? Like chocolate, ice cream, etc... You can be specific, too. I know I like chocolate, but not every brand of chocolate is good, neither is all types of chocolate, ie..dark, white, milk, etc....

    My biggest weakness would have to be caramel. A good caramel is addictive to me.

    So what REALLY gets your sweet tooth dripping with saliva???

    Now, is that car-uh-mul or care-eh-mul? I'm pretty fond of care-eh-mul, myself.

    But some good brownies with pecans are good, too.

    Anything made with good chocolate, not the kind of chocolate they make those .99c Easter Bunnies out of around this time of year. Godiva, Fanny Mae, Hersheys, Dove, etc. My fave candy bar is still Snickers. Sweets especially anything choclate or mixed with chocolate are my downfall. Chocolate and P-nut butter is another weakness.

    My dish for Super Bowl Sunday. Cheesy Jalapeno Corn Dip w/ Tostito's Scoops and a big pot of Homemade Chili.

    ALL SWEETS. I have a real problem. I would have to go with a top five list as it would be very difficult to select only one favorite:

    Breyers Vanilla Bean ice cream with Hersheys chocolate syrup and dry roasted peanuts

    Pixie Sticks (Giant size please)

    Skor Bar

    Little Debbie Swiss Cake Rolls

    Almost any kind of raw (uncooked) Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

    I would post more but I have to go get a snack now... damn...

    Ooops = Superbowl Favorite "Ed's Habanero Hell Black Bean Chilli" - not bad if I say so myself...

    Any good dark chocolate

    And my biggest weakness is peanut butter cups (or anything of its ilk). I buy this ice cream, Edy's Fudge Tracks.... just.... words can't describe.

    The best sweet combo ever is anything chocolatey with a big mug of coffee in your other hand. Its the best, I **** you not.

    Lemonheads are pretty rad too.

    more/less mood related. I love European chocolate (cant stand most of our cooking **** we call chocolate). Of course, I am guilty of tearing into reeses peanut butter cups when the opportunity presents itself.

    Mint/Oreo dairy queen blizzards are pretty good as well.

    The best in my book is East Coast Frozen Custard. The vanilla is amazing. Only problem is the hand packed is not near as good as a cone straight from the machine.

    Runner up used to be chocolate from the original Honey Ice Cream Stand, also in Cleveland, OH, but they're gone now so a frozen Milky Way gets the nod.

    I'm with you on the Reeses, HTRookie. However, for me it's the Reeses Miniatures. They just have the perfect ratio of peanut butter to chocolate!
