An irresistibly sweet award

Thanks to Dana at Let's Book It, for this lovely little award

And given the look and name of it, I figure it's only appropriate that the seven facts I reveal about myself relate to those sweet temptations I simply can't resist!

1. Ice cream
My favourite is New Zealand's goody goody gum drop ice cream - an electric green, bubble gum flavoured ice cream filled with jelly jubes... yum! But given that I'm hardly ever in NZ, second place is always a gooey caramel ice cream with caramel chocolates scattered throughout.

2. Peppermint chocolate
This combination goes perfectly together - but it has to be runny peppermint on the inside, like after dinner mints.

Much like Elaine off Seinfield and her muffin tops, I'm all about the topping! Forget the cupcakes - I just love the frosting!

4. Cake!
Although you can't go wrong with a good old chocolate cake, during my year without chocolate - yes a whole year! - I obviously couldn't have chocolate cake for my birthday, so husband made me a DELICIOUS ice cream cake instead!

5. Snifters
Another New Zealand sweet of old. These no longer seem to be made (sob sob) but they were little mint green eggs with a candy coating, chocolate inside, and a crunchy yet chewy centre. Irresistible in other words!

6. Kahlua and Moro Bar Cheesecake
Need I say more - simply sumblime!

7. Chocolate brownie
It's got to be good though - and by good I mean a crunchy outer, a gooey inner, and that yummy brownie texture to boot. If it's not good - then just give me the mixture!
