My favorite sweet treat has to be freshly baked cookies…you can’t beat chocolate chip cookies right from the oven. Although I love pretty much every dessert, so it’s a hard choice to make.

My favorite dessert is oreos and milk, or my wife’s cookies and milk. Nothing beats a warm chocolate chip cookie and a cold cup of milk.

Hmmm…either carmel turtles or “curiosity bars” that my cousin makes…it’s basically a brownie with melted caramel and chocolate inside. It’s absolutely sinful.

Daniel Rios

I worked as a chocolatier for a year and really have a soft spot for milk chocolate salted caramel turtles.


I love anything that mixes sweet and savory – dark chocolate covered pretzels, yum!


I am a fiend for caramel. All of my favorite treats incorporate it in some way!

Charlene Chew

I recently rekindled my love of chocolate on Thanksgiving when I made a decadent chocolate tart. Now I can’t stop trying different chocolate shops and playing with recipes.


Creme brulee and homemade peanut-butter-dark-chocolate bon bons (homemade by my mom- I have yet to find the patience to make them!)

Aimee Lee

Something that’s a mix of salty and sweet, like salted caramel cupcakes . ..or salted caramel anything!


Anything chocolate, preferably dark, and particularly when mixed with ginger or sea salt or almonds!


I love Lisa’s goodies. But if i had to pick one sweet treat it’s my annual birthday cake fron Franks on 30th ave. The 7 layer chocolate cake that’s always in the window. If it weren’t for the stomach bug i have right now i’d be drooling while posting this.


Peppernuts. Pfeffernüsse. These little German things my grandma always had around near Christmastime. MMM.


This is the hardest question! Second to asking one to choose which kid she likes best.

I guess I will go with dark chocolate covered pretzels.


My favorite sweet treat is s’mores – toasty marshmallows and oozing chocolate on a graham cracker crunch!


I love marshmallows, especially chocolate ones, or marshmallows dipped in chocolate.


I am a big fan of cake pops. But honestly, I’m pretty much just into ANY kind of dessert.


ANYTHING chocolate. Seriously. But especially dark chocolate. My recent favorite combination is dark chocolate and sea salt. I also have a special place in my heart for really good strawberry shortcake, and carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.


Last winter my roomie and I discovered a mulled wine hot chocolate recipe that is incredibly decadent, definitely made for special occasions.


My favorite treat from childhood… the Twinkie, which has been rekindled in my brain from all the press recently.


My favorite tangible sweet treat is anything made from dark chocolate. Intangible – the love of my friends and family! <3
