SQUARES – Mood Altering Kind

Round chocolate cake with chocolate covered strawberries on top.

Why does chocolate make us feel better? Scientifically, it is likely tryptophan which is an amino acid found in chocolate. It helps the brain make serotonin and makes of feel happy and satisfied. For me, I’m like a chain smoker that can’t stop smoking…only it is eating chocolate. I eat chocolate everyday. Sometimes multiple times a day. Reese’s miniatures frozen are my downfall, but just about any chocolate will do. I’m allergic to coconut & raisins, so any chocolate mixed with either item is off limits. Otherwise, SHOW ME THE CHOCOLATE!

This cake was made by our local groceries’ bakery, Publix. I have had it a time or two or three or four. Publix’s motto is “Where shopping is a pleasure”. It certainly is!!!

  1. I used to bring chocolate to meetings of leadership at our church. I believe that they greased the skids, even when we had some difficult topics to discuss.

    • Very good idea! Keeps everyone grounded just a bit. For me, it works as good as any other form of caffeine. I don’t drink coffee and have a coke one in a while. Chocolate every single day! ๐Ÿ™‚
