It's Really a Sweet. Sweet Saturday...

...Because it's National Milk Chocolate Day. In honor of what may become one of my new favorite holidays I am featuring -- what else! -- milk chocolate.

First, in honor of the Olympics and the host country of the 30th Olympiad, let's give a cheer for Cadbury!

Next in honor of one of my favorite ways to enjoy milk chocolate, as any part of a cupcake, let's give a cheer for these ultra-yummy looking cupcakes, topped with milk chocolate glaze.

I like chocolate, and although in many circles, milk chocolate has fallen out of favor to dark chocolate, milk chocolate is my favorite. I won't toss away a piece of dark chocolate, but when given a preference I will always pick the milk chocolate. What is your favorite kind of chocolate? Do I have any other members of the milk chocolate fan club in Buttercupland?  

Have a sweet, sweet Saturday!

Oh, yum! Who doesn't LOVE chocolate? If truth be known, milk chocolate is my first choice, although it is a small piece of dark chocolate that I eat daily. xo Nellie

Dear Buttercup, I am in the dark chocolate fan club. Both milk chocolate and dark chocolate are good though.

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

I love it all. I try to stick with dark because it is better for you, but will take it most anyway...Hope your Saturday is a sweet one too!

I'm with you on the milk chocolate. I prefer it over dark, but out of "guilt" I usually purchase the dark. xo

MILK CHOCOLATE wins hands down. Unfortunately sweets are no longer part of my vocabulary because of the diabetes. SIGH. ENJOY yours,though.

Dark chocolate is my favorite. I have had to cut back on sweets but when I do indulge that's what appeals to me.
