Hitting The Sweet Spot

Delicious Irrisistibles

As we grow up there is one thing that definitely does not fade, that is the love for all things sweet. Although we may longer be surrounded around the small sweets tables at parties like children; when that sweet tooth kicks into gear, there is no stopping it. This little devilish sweet tooth is in huge competition with the healthy and fitness conscious angel sitting ones opposite shoulder. Although the health conscious angel may sometimes prevail, this is definitely on a rare occasion. In my mind, if your body is craving something, your body obviously needs it so you can’t deny your body the nourishment (or lack thereof); its simple biology.

As any girl knows, there is nothing quite like chocolate to smooth out even the roughest of days. Whether it is Cadbury or Lindt, there is just no way to say no to a little slab of happiness. Whether your craving is one for candy sweets, chocolate or smooth ice cream; I have found a mouth-watering recipe for Bar One Cupcakes that will give that sweet tooth a run for its money.
