A CHOCOLATE Fix!

I just had one of those days and needed my little CHOCOLATE FIX! I reached to the very back of the refrigerator and found my special little treat...a tub of chocolate frosting! All I needed was 1, okay 2 spoonfuls of creamy dark chocolate! Instant satisfaction!
One day recently my three daughters and I were emailing each other back and forth (it's so much fun!) laughing and talking about how much we all LOVE frosting!!! One by one they all confessed to keeping a tub of frosting tucked and hidden away in their fridge's to! (And I thought they never saw it!) Our hubby's don't know about it but I am sure their daughters know and won't tell a soul!
A girls gotta have a CHOCOLATE FIX in private sometimes!

Thanks Becky from Sweet Cottage Dreams for giving me the craving! LOL!

Do have a chocolate fix? Where is your stash hidden?

Teach your daughters well!
Love,
Maryjane xox

Shhh you weren't suppose to share that secret about the frosting.... did you know they make a lower sugar version now... still tastes great... but less sugar

Lori said...

heather said...

Heather said...

that is too cute! i'm not a big frosting fan, but i like little candy bars like mr goodbar or twix or kitkat and i just keep them in the pantry. nathan won't touch them thankfully!

Kelley said...

I have a stash of Cadbury Mini Eggs hidden in various drawers way in the back...
Since they only come out at Easter, I buy some ahead and freeze them so I don't run out!

Tiffani said...

hi mom!
oh yummm! i almost made cupcakes today because i was craving that chocolate frosting! i settled for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies instead! better crocker frosting....it's a must to have on hand for a chocolate fix! : )

Heidi said...

I had my fix today!!! My hidden tube of frosting in the back of the cupboard... my new place! =) It was so yummy!!! But my tounge was red afterwards and Shawn is home sick so I had to avoid him! HAAA!!!!!!! Shawn is begging me to make him choc chip cookies. Another fix for the day... a chocolate fix! =) I LOVE FROSTING!!!!!

YaYa's Funhouse said...

ugh, oh...now the secret is out. I love chocolate too. I don't understand people that don't!!

Lorri said...

My stash is hidden in my panty drawer! I keep m&m and butterfingers in small little packages hidden deep in the recesses of the drawer. No one has ever found it!

Just a little something from Judy said...

Great post!! Daughters are so much fun. Go ahead enjoy your chocolate secrets...we won't tell a soul. My mother has a box of chocolates by her bed, and every night she has one before she goes to sleep. Oh, the joy that brings her. I personally think it is one of the reasons for her good health.

Deanna said...

Oh Maryjane, what a hoot! I not only have a hidden tub of chocolate but I have a creme cheese frosting tub as well! I keep them behind the sugar free juice jug I have and I know my hubby never moves it.

Ah life, so full of chocolate-ty goodness!

Deanna :D

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

I just polished off the last of my M&M peanut stash just about 30 minutes ago ! I keep them hid in my computer desk ! ( Giggles )
Thanks for the cute post !

Cottage Rose said...

Wow it has been awhile since I paid you a visit... hey don't worry I won't tell where your frosting is. And what a great idea, I never thought of that.... Guess where I am going tomorrow..... lol How fun it is to email back and forth...

Irma's Rose Cottage said...

I also have my chocolate tub hidden waaaaaay back behind the butter tub. No one ever checks behind there. LOL.

Hugs :)

Margie said...

I too have been known to "hit the frosting"! I don't necessarily need chocolate, though, I'm just going for the sugar, so I usually have some kind of fix on hand somewhere! (usually choc chip cookies!)

I LOVE the pic of that adorable little girl licking the bowl! What a cutie pie!

Have a lovely day!

Julie said...

Oh, Miss MaryJane!
Now I'm wanting some!!! I love chocolate frosting -- and like you, I require 1 or maybe 2 spoonfuls!!!
Right now, my favorite chocolate fix is a snack size (1 or 2) BabyRuth's melted in the microwave for about 10 seconds! YUM!

Congratulations on getting in Mary Jane's magazine!!!! Yay! Yay! Yay!!!
Blessings,
Julie

Stephanie said...

O yum ! Now I want some and I have some right next to me in the pantry !!! ugh !

Beehive Cottage said...

I used to eat chocolate chips, just a handful, but nowadays they taste kind of waxy & hard. Once in a while I'll buy a belgian chocolate bar from Aldi's & keep it in my vanity drawer, wonderful. But nothing, I repeat, nothing beats creamy chocolate frosting kept in the back of the fridge. How is it that when you think you're the only one with a secret, you find out that you're not alone. What a wonderful world it would be if chocolate frosting was man's (or woman's) worst habit.

Mimi Sue said...

My mom used to keep a little stash in her bedside table. I don't really hide mine. Your new antique sink is so adorable. I don't think I've ever seen anything like it before. So cute. Mimi

Kay @ The Rustic Cottage said...

You mean I'm not the only one that eats frosting out of the can when I need a chocolate fix??? I always have a chocolate stash. And Pepsi too!

Kathy said...

English Cottage in Georgia said...

LOL!!! It has been years since I broke into the frosting tubs, but I did eat too many chocolate kisses with almonds yesterday:-).

Terri and Bob said...

I had never thought of this.

I have a stash in my PTO closet. No one thinks to go in there but me!

Danette said...

Sadly ~ I am allergic to chocolate and had to give it up about 23 years ago. However, my daughters carry the chocolate lovers gene! Hilary, my oldest, is a true addict who hides it all over!
I love that your girls do the same exact thing you do! Like it or not, we really do turn into our mothers!!!

Ali said...

I'm another who finds a few spoonfuls of creamy frosting is a perfect sweet fix! Glad to know I'm not alone.

Sassy said...

Yes...I have my secret place...shhhh it's secret and it's also a sin to let it go to waste!!! I ♥ frosting spread between graham crackers...that was a fav from when I was a child..this was a fun post! My sons are probably worse than our daughters when it comes to a love of the choclate...they make me laugh!

Mo said...

Yum! I think I just ate the last of my stash.

Broke Bettie said...

Oh man - that takes me back, haven't had a dollop of chocolate frosting in years!!

Anne Fannie said...

Cathy said...

A chocolate stash is a must! And yes my two daughters--ages 25 and 9 both have their own chocolate stashes and so does my mother and so did my grandmother. My favorite thing to stash in mine is a giant Hershey bar. Oh yeah!

Cathy ♥

PS--chocolate frosting on graham crackers! A treat shared by all generations of women in our family.

madrekarin said...

My chocloate fix is nilk chocolate frosting sandwiched between two Ritz crackers. Yum. The perfect blend of seet and salty. :)

Lavender Dreamer said...

heeheehee! I buy something that my hubby doesn't like! It's my latest CRAZE! Little pillow square pretzels with peanut butter in the center...covered in dark chocolate! OH MY! It's a BIG bite that satisfies the craving.......that I now have.....be right back........!!!

Joy said...

What a cute post! I love chocolate. Have you ever had the chocolate whipped frosting? Yum!

Thistle Cove Farm said...

Oh my yes, I join you in the chocolate frosting fix! Also, those glass jars of dark chocolate topping for ice cream...even richer than frosting.
That reminds me...I need to buy more, thanks!

The American Homemaker said...

Mine is Nutella by the spoonful and dark chocolate in a pretty glass jar in my room :)

Cynthia's Cottage Design said...

Oh that is so ADORABLE Maryjane! I am cracking up at that little face on the girl and your sweet little story! Thanks for a morning smile , how sweet!

Heart of a Cowgirl said...

I will grab a handful of chocolate chips when I get that urge!

Farm Chick Paula said...

I have an open bag of M&M'S hidden in my loaf pan in the cabinet- shhhhh! Don't tell Hubby! LOL

Donna Lynn said...

Hi Maryjane,
My sister eats the frosting like that too, my fix is cherry cobbler! I adore sour cherries, weird huh? I love chocolate but it does a number on my heart, caffeine! Dang it, oh well, cherry it is...
Cute post! Hope all is well in your corner of the world, we are still getting weird March weather here, hopefully soon it will warm up!
XO,
Donna Lynn

Carrie said...

I don't do the frosting but I do keep a few chocolate candies in a top kitchen shelf.

They come in handy during those "manic mommy moments".

Rechelle ~Walnuthaven Cottage~ said...

There "was" a tub of chcolate frosting but the chocolate fairy must have confiscated it. Yea, that's my story and I'm sticking to it! lol!
We usually have a big ole' Hershey bar tucked in the fridge or freezer for those moments when any one of us needs a fix...hubbs included.

karlascottage.typepad.com said...

I'm the same way, but my fave is the vanilla frosting. Or the cream cheese. What an ideal sweet treat!

Kristine said...

OMG. It cracked me up to read your chocolate fix. Mine is also store bought chocolate frosting. Only I keep it in the FREEZER. Try it. It makes so cold and sort of chewy. The texture is great!
