I have to admit... but,
Don't tell anyone...
Or they will come to my house every breakfast!

I'm crazy for chocolate and brownies!! At breakfast!

Well everyone loves chocolate & brownies... but, 
I have to have any of that chocolately "everytime" I finish my meal... especially at breakfast!
A dessert breakfast!

So, the first thing I looking for in the morning after I have my hot morning lemon water is... a brownies or a chocolate cookies... or any cookies with chocolate on the label.
Sometimes, I will make a bread or  pancake for breakfast, but still... I will always looking for anything chocolately after that.
Do I have a sweet tooth?
I'll said that I'm not a sweet tooth person because the "sensasion" that I loves in the chocolate is the bitter one... dark chocolate? 
Yes Please! :D

Moreover... how could you resist if all THIS ingredients awaiting you every morning and after a meal? 

And as we know...
Chocolate, especially dark chocolate rich in antioxidants that can reduce the formation of free radicals. Dark chocolate also can affect serotonin levels on our brain that can effect "give the good mood" sensation on the brain same as banana. And the more good news is dark chocolate has also been said can reduce the possibility of heart attack if consume regularly on small amounts.
