I love drinking chocolate. New drinking chocolate bars are popping up and people are doing that instead of gourmet coffees. You can also create drinking chocolate for parties, adding special syrups and coffee drinks. Great for the holidays.
I like the Herdhey's the best and I break off the little tabs or take the Kisses and just suck on them for awhile and see how small I can get them before I accidentally bite them. I love to savor the flavor.
Chocolate dipped strawberries, chocolate coated licorice and chocolate toffee macadamia nuts - yum... Oh, and chocolate souffle and flourless chocolate cake and chocolate pudding.....I could go on and on...my DH and I both LOVE chocolate. We have a small fridge magnet a friend gave us a few years ago, "Things are getting desperate, please send chocolate!"....
I love to take a regular hershey bar, sit down with a cup of hot steaming water and dip the candy bar into it and lick the chocolate off a little at a time until pieces of the bar just fall into my mouth. That is just the most awesome thing.
I love hazelnut chocolate which I break off across the block and eat slowly to savour the taste. I'm with you Deborah49 - Chocolate cake and fruit dipped in chocolate, just divine. Chocolate tim tams (aussie biscuits) and chocolate covered marshmallow is also a favourite.
Actually, come to think of it - I just love chocolate.
I don't like the chocolate and mint combination either. I've never had dark chocolate ice cream. I heard its very good. I might have to stop at Baskin Robbins and really pay attention to their flavors of ice cream.
Chocolate is wonderful with peanut butter. I used to take the Kit Kat bars, break them into the individual sticks and dip them in peanut butter...oh, what heaven that was!!! Now I usually just have my chocolate in a mocha - love it. I agree with Vance, I love the Hersheys bars, break the little squares off or the kisses and savor it as long as I can.

Phyllis, the Kit Kat bars in the peanut butter sounds sooo good. But I happen to like anything dipped in peanut butter. The Hershey bars dipped in PB would be awesome too or as a peanut butter and chocolate sandwich. I am getting carried away here!
I love just plain chocolate, but I have to say that my ultimate favorite chocolate treat is chocolate buttercreams. I like them even better than truffles! Sees makes insanely good buttercreams, and you can get dark chocolate-covered ones. A box of those, a hot bath, and a really cozy novel (or a book of old-fashioned ghost stories): my personal heaven.
Darn -- you're in Canada! I'm in California! Bit of a schlep for me to drop by your downtown!
If you like gooey chocolate, have you tried Lake Champlain? I think they're sold all over the place, and they have a web site where you can order their stuff. They have a rum-caramel chocolate bar that has to be tried to be believed.
darn -- the only store in my area that carries L.C. chocolates closed five minutes ago...

Okay, that's ironic -- Vermont is *way* closer to Canada than it is to southern California, and they're willing to ship to a hot place like Santa Monica (extra ice in that box, please!) but won't risk sending their stuff to *Ontario*?!? I'm getting on the phone right now and demanding to speak to someone in their logic department...

I love the combination of caramel, nuts and chocolate - See's make so many delicious caramel/nut/chocolate combinations - an American client gave me a box of See's chocolates a few years ago - delicious! In Australia one of my favourites is Haigh's Chocolates...they make delicious peppermint oil chocolate frogs...choc/coconut roughs and choc hazelnut clusters - yum.....
