Last Night.

Mr. How Sweet walked through the door with a surprise.

A very sweet surprise. Literally.

Okay… six very sweet surprises.

Plus one to fight over. I won. But I gifted it to him.

Chocolate lava cake. Yeah… that was to die for.

Milk chocolate. Classy and timeless. Nothing like myself.

But our favorite? Red velvet. Hands down.

And Mr. How Sweet claimed that since we ate lean meat and whole wheat bread for dinner, plus the fact that truffles are bite size… that they actually have negative calories. Best husband ever.

    Haha, got to love having a husband that’s on the same page as you when it comes to nutrition. ;-)

    I have a Godiva membership card and it allows me one free piece each month. I feel so bad because I rarely buy anything there. Well, kind of bad…

    I’m pretty sure if I had a red velvet truffle I would instantly die in euphoria. What a nice treat for you!

    Don’t all truffles have negative calories? Let’s get real here.

    Nice work to Mr. How Sweet on picking a red velvet truffle – bet it was great.

    I totally made some red velvet ganache last weekend. It didn’t taste like red velvet until I added the food coloring. It’s true.

    Red velvet truffles = died & gone to heaven. Red velvet isn’t as popular or accessible where I live in Canada. I might have to check online to see if I can get my hands on some of those….I’ll use my hubby’s credit card so it’s like he’s bought me a surprise….that counts right ??? ;-)

    Yes, whole wheat bread + bite size truffles = negative calories. Good thinking Mr. Sweet.

    Yummmmmmm, I want to be your honorary sister. Then I’ll be Mr. How Sweet’s sister, and then he MUST buy me chocolate too (because that’s what brothers are supposed to do, you know.) If he’s interested in an honorary sister in law to send chocolates to, I won’t mind sharing my address with you. Hehe. (:

    i seriously laughed out loud on the negative calories comment. it sounds like something my boyfriend would say. and i would eagerly nod in agreement with a mouthful of truffles.

    The red velvet truffle actually looks like cookie dough inside.
    You should make a bacon and chocolate truffle. Those definitely would have negative calories!

    OMG I LOVE GODIVA CHOCOLATES!!!! Back in High School, after we got our licenses, my best friend and I used to go to the mall just for the Godiva chocolate covered strawberries. To this day when I walk by Godiva it reminds me of those wonderful days. And those wonderful strawberries
