Chocolate - Need I say more?

Do you have a favorite candy??
Mine is a unbroken "Butterfinger".
I know that it still tastes the same when it is broken, but for some reason, when it is unbroken it just tastes better!
Many people in this house enjoy a.....
In fact, Jim received a huge package of "Reese's Peanut Butter Cups" for Father's Day this past Sunday.
Jim had them stashed up on his dresser, but not hidden well enough from the eagle eyes of
I found chocolate smeared all over the bed.
The bed that I had just put clean sheets on!
When I had determined that Jim wasn't the chocolate smearing culprit, I concluded that Sam had laid back leisurely on our bed and munched his way through several peanut butter cups.

On Wednesday night we gave Samuel another peanut butter cup.
After watching him eat it I was reminded of a TV ad that Reese's had done several years ago.  They asked the question, "How do you eat your Reese's?"  Then they go on to show people eating them from the middle out, etc.
I wanted to insert a photo of a peanut butter cup with a hole in the middle - but, alas, I couldn't find one.  I thought about sacrificing one of my husbands last remaining peanut butter cups, but.....
In case you need to know how to eat a "Reese's Peanut Butter Cup", here are some blow by blow directions!
  1. Take the wrapper off the PB cup. Depending on the size of the cup, you will either be opening a package or unwrapping foil
  2. Once the initial package is open, remove the protective paper shell around the chocolate.
  3. Now you have the PB cup ready to eat in your hand!
  4. Pop the WHOLE thing into your mouth.
  5. With your tongue, turn the cup so that the smooth top is facing the front of your mouth.
  6. Put the cup between your teeth on the line between the smooth top of the cup and the perforated edges.
  7. Bite down so as to separate the smooth top from the bottom of the chocolate where the peanut butter is located.
  8. Allow the bottom half (with peanut butter) to fall back towards your tongue.
  9. Push the smooth top over to the corner of your cheek and let it melt.
  10. Once it's mostly melted, push all pieces back to the center of your mouth and bite down.
  11. Either let it melt into nothing if you want to savor the flavor, or else bite and chew and swallow!
This is how Samuel eats his "Reese's Peanut Butter Cups".
First, steal take borrow a "Reese's Peanut Butter Cup" from Dad's dresser.
Second, climb into Mum and Dad's bed.
Third, demand ask Mum to pull the covers up and to snuggle next to me.
 Fourth, when silky is completely covering my face, commence eating the peanut butter cup.
Fifth, it is very difficult to eat a peanut butter cup when my entire face is covered.
Sooooo, lift silky and continue to eat.......even though I am so very tired and half asleep.
Sixth, when finished, wipe sticky chocolaty hands on whatever is closest.
What.......or in this case, you think happened to be closest???

However you happen to eat your favorite candy, enjoy!
