Today, it’s cold. Spring is here and it’s cold. Surprise. Having said that, I’m sure you won’t be shocked to hear we’re getting a little tired of the cold in VT. So, to take the edge off, I have resorted to a favorite I save for special days when I need a little extra help lifting my spirits. Organic Milk Chocolate squares with Sea Salt and Almonds. They’re just the thing when nothing else will do. They have actual gray sea salt added in to the chocolate separate from the almonds and they’re just delicious. I love to get those tiny salty bits mixed in with the sweet milk chocolate and the roasty flavor of the almonds rounds it out nicely.
And since they’re organic, I can sell myself on the fact that I’m really putting good stuff into my body while I’m snacking. Does this make chocolate health food? No. But it does make me feel less guilty about it.
So, with a few squares and a cup of coffee, it’s only a matter of time until my mood is better and I’m back on top of my game. But hey, if that doesn’t work, I’ll try something else. Maybe the spicy Aztec Dark Chocolate squares. It’s worth a shot! Do you have any secret chocolate tips for boosting your spirits?
