52 Lists / Forty Five

This week: List your favourite sweet treats
(Can you tell that I'm starting to get desperate for list ideas?)

Rich Tea biscuits
Perfect for dunking.

The chocolate variety not the bird. Memories of childhood.

Any day. Any time. With anything.

Whipped cream and sprinkles 
On hot chocolate.

Rhubarb Crumble
Preferably with custard.

Hokey Pokey Ice Cream
Otherwise known as honeycomb weaved  through vanilla ice cream.

Stemmed ginger cookies
I love the warmth in every bite.

Rhubarb and Custard sweets
Can you see a theme developing?

Christmas Cake
I just love everything about it: the brandy-soaked fruits, the marzipan, the crunchy royal icing. Mmm!

Ice-Cold Strawberry Milk
Usually hurriedly made out of a tub of Nesquik.

Percy Pigs
Because I'm a child at heart.

Charbonnel & Walker Champagne Truffles
My choice of chocolate. The type that you savour one at a time and not just troff.
(Oh, and I love Rose and Violet Creams in the same way. Just call me Grandma)

Any biscuits, pastries, cakes or puddings with cinnamon and spices
Those Christmassy flavours are about my favourite thing ever - to eat or smell.

Jaffa Cakes
Are they are cake or a biscuit? Whatever - they are delicious.

It wasn't too hard to write this list, even though I would say that I don't have a sweet tooth and the fact that we can have biscuits, chocolates and sweets in the house for months and not touch them. We even still have an Easter Egg waiting to be eaten!

What are your favourite sweet treats?


  1. Thanks to you, I also love Percy Pigs :) Other favorites are a hot creamy drink from Starbuck's, homemade gingerbread with whipped cream, chocolate chip cookies fresh from the oven, and scones with clotted cream and lemon curd.

  2. That's a pretty good list! Well, except for the christmas cake bit - yuck! I'm a big fan of rose and violet cream too!

    1. When I read it again, my mouth was watering. I sound like such a glutton! x
