Chocolate Sprinkles and Rubbing Alcohol

So I know I have talked about caffeine addiction, but because I am flawed and weak human being, I admit that addicted to chocolate as well. I have been using caffeine and chocolate to get me through stressful times, sleepy times, and just general times (as in, any time of the day). I had been keeping a candy stash, which was my go-to source when I needed a little pick me up.

But I knew this was totally unhealthy, so I had stopped buying a candy stash in an effort to curb the chocolate addiction. However, simply not having it around does not eliminate my craving for chocolate, sweets, and anything sugary.

This is why I soon found myself desperately searching the cupboards for anything that could be remotely considered a "sweet".

The only thing I could find was chocolate sprinkles in my baking cupboard.

This, of course, is not really chocolate. But it was all I had and I eagerly ate some. Bleh! They do not taste very good when not on cupcakes.

It suddenly dawned on me what I was doing was seriously pathetic. I am pretty sure I have hit a new low. Because chocolate sprinkles to a chocoholic is what rubbing alcohol is to an alcoholic. And I think I need professional help.

  1. That's alright...at a low point I dipped into the icing and I'm sure you remember my 3 lb. bag of M&M victory? It will pass. Until then you gotta do what you gotta do!

    1. Icing! I didn't have any or I am sure I would have dipped into that too. It's probably tastier than sprinkles anyway!

  2. Trying to cut back, I get those fancy chocolate bars (right now Lindt 70%) and break off one chunk for a snack. Really hard not to down the whole bar, but one square is OK.

    1. But Joe, wouldn't a super tasty fancy chocolate bar be even harder to resist?

  3. I once put Hershey's syrup on a small bowl of peanuts for lack of anything better in the cupboards. I empathize.

  4. Hey doesn't chocolate have antioxidants? It's good for you. You should always keep chocolate chips in the freezer for emergencies!

    1. Yes, it does have antioxidants. I am thinking that based on the amount of antioxidants I am consuming at present, I will live to be 150. At least.
