That time of the day , when my throat refuses to swallow healthy food, and my taste buds are craving for something deliciously unhealthy , Betty Crocker and Nutella come to my rescue!

Pancakes are an all time favourite , but making them from scratch can be very tiring and the effort itself puts you off. Thanks to pan cake mix , it’s a hassle free 5 min job to make soft fluffy yummy pancakes.

Most people like to top up their pancakes with maple syrup or honey . For me , however, pancake isn’t a pancake without Nutella lathered over it. In fact I have probably never had a pancake otherwise. The smooth chocolaty spread with the subtle flavour of hazel nut , always works it’s magic on my pancakes.

Nutella is so close to my heart that it even makes me nostalgic at times. It reminds me of my college years ,when I used to drag all my friends to that one eatery in the entire town which had Nutella pancakes on it’s menu . I don’t remember reading beyond that ever !

I wonder who came up with the idea of this hazel nut and chocolate spread . I thank  that genius everyday for making my life sweet and Nutelli-cious.   🙂

It really amazes me how people can associate chocolate with guilt . Out of all the emotions a human brain can experience , relating chocolate to guilt is just unacceptable. Celebration , Happiness, Lust, Love  yes , but not guilt. It’s just chocolate , it won’t make you pregnant !!

Being a ‘chocoholic’ (yes , I like to call myself that) , I can come up with a million reasons why chocolate is the solution to everything.

1. With all the endorphin it releases , it gets you high without screwing up your liver or lungs.

2. The flavanoids keep your heart healthy.

3. It’s an aphrodisiac  , cheers you up instantly.

4.  When you are out of ideas for buying presents . Ta- da — Chocolate.

5. Anything with chocolate in it tastes good , safest option in any menu card .

6. If you’re weight conscious, try dark chocolate.

7. It’s soul food . God gave us taste buds for a reason!

8. It even makes milk smell amazing.

9. It comes with too many options , nuts , raisins , strawberry covered, caramel, dark , marzipan , mint , cupcakes , biscuits …

10. It’s everywhere , and you cannot escape it .

The list is never-ending . Every time I eat chocolate I relate it to celebration . The fact that I can afford it and relish it in peace brings with it a sense of achievement, that I have fixed whatever went wrong in the day .

Some of the smartest people in the world wrote the quotes below. Happy chocolate eating 🙂
