Weekly Photo Challenge: DREAMY, 2

After the first Dreamy post’s spookiness, let’s move on to something lighter and —well, dreamier!

Some folks dream in technicolor, others in black and white. Then there are those, like me, who dream in chocolate. (And related pastries, as well —)

Here’s an assortment for you. Sorry I can’t offer actual tastes, WordPress isn’t quite that advanced. But they’re all available at Chocolate Springs in the town of Lenox, in Berkshire County. A beautiful ride in beautiful countryside, with a great reward at the end!

All Dark Chocolate

Can you read the description? “Dark Chocolate Mousse on Dark Chocolate Sponge Cake.” Joshua Needleman, chocolatier extraordinary, labels them “All Dark,” for obvious reasons.

Dark Yumminess

I don’t remember what he calls these; what I call them is Dark Yumminess!


Chocolate PassionHere we’ve moved into the assortment of chocolates that you can bring back to someone you love as a very special present. (Maybe even to yourself?)

Assorted Macarons

And we won’t overlook those up-to-the-moment darlings of the French pastry world, the macarons. One of them is chocolate, naturellement.

Delicious and tempting as all of these are, though, when push comes to shove for the Hub and we’re ordering at the counter, it’s Chocolate Springs’ hot chocolate that wins his vote.

The UR-hot chocolate!

This is the Ur-chocolate of all hot chocolate, and truly the stuff sweet dreams are made on. Thanks, Joshua. May you live long and prosper!

  1. Oh, my goodness! Thank goodness I don’t live within easy range of him!

  2. Joshua deserves a hand! And as good as everything looks I vote for the hot chocolate. Yum-oh! 😉

    All of those treats look *amazingly* dreamy!

    Ahhhh! Chocolate!!! How all of us dream we can consume as much chocolate as we like. That hot chocolate looks mouthwatering, I hope it was. Always a fan of that drink. Chocolate mousse cake doesn’t always sit well with me, however. Sometimes the mousse might be too sweet or rich for my liking. Currently I am working my way through Cadbury block chocolates at home and at work 🙂 Great interpretation for this weeks’ challenge!

      In the US people mostly like milk chocolate. I no longer do. Traveling in Europe gave me a taste for dark chocolate, which is not so sweet. Like you, I don’t like overly sweet things. In England I think a lot of the chocolate is milk chocolate; I used to like KitKats, but don’t know if I still would.
      I don’t know about chocolate preferences in Australia!

      • Mabel Kwong says:

        I prefer milk chocolate over dark chocolate. In Australia it’s hard to find dark chocolate with a good mix of sweet and bitter taste. The other day I tried some American KitKats, they tasted terrible. Way too sweet.

        Cadbury chocolate is very popular here in Australia. It’s not that sweet compared to the ones made in Europe.

        Thank you for the overview, Mabel!

  5. I am lucky I live a long, long way from Lenox or I would weigh -easily- 500 pounds. Now I am off to raid the chocolate in our pantry!

    • Touch2Touch says:

      But just think, then you could sit anywhere! Remember the old joke, Where does a 500-pound gorilla sit? Wherever s/he wants to.
      Just teasing! You enjoy your daily chocolate! We always do.
