same to you PC.. .. now if they would make dark choc bunnies.. buy one for Em.. Hope she is doing GREAT..

Years ago I was on a diet.. a hamburger for lunch and choc icecream for snack..
and fryes for dinner.. lost 20 pounds.. but I was young..

I could never give up chocolate.. nor hamburger.. all else could be negotiated..

Eric - Thanks for the temptation!!! I haven't eaten one of these in years. I've been stressed lately and seem to want to eat everything I'm not supposed to but haven't given in so far. I think I'll go chew on a doorknob!!! Arghh!  :o LOL

Hey, you gotta let your hair down once in a while -- especially a type O.  We have to reward ourselves to keep that dopamine high!!

I'm sure you could make chocolate almond butter cups if you really wanted to fuss in the kitchen. But I definitely understand wanting a junky, sugary treat for special occasions. Depending on your overall health and the quantity of the avoid you eat, you're probably fine. There's a huge difference between eating one peanut butter egg and a whole bag of them!

You can find dark chocolate bunnies, I've seen them.  And dark chocolate cadbury mini eggs, too.  I know that for a fact.   :B

Sometimes you just have to "test", you know?! ;D

I haven't eaten much chocolate lately, need to pick some up.  Goes good with parmesan cheese.

New treat...melt chocolate, spread on baking sheet and sprinkle cranberries or cherries and nuts across the top. Refrigerate and break into pieces.  :)

Yum!

I've got a couple of organic kits to make chocolate at home (all of it on diet). I reckon I might make some with cranberries, pumpkin seeds, blueberries, ginger etc for Easter. Cool, thanks for the inspiration!
