A sweet tooth

I love sweets. Well actually I don´t like cakes that are too sweets.
But I love cakes!
I am always on a mission to make healthy cakes though. I want to cut the sugar but still make sure that it´s sweet. That means that my husband, who is Brazilian and used to sweet cakes, doesn´t think it´s sweet enough.

The Brazilian candy is extremely sweet. For me that is. I haven´t been able to find a favorite candy actually. I like some of the cakes they have but the candy.. no. Nothing special at all.

In Sweden we have Pick ´n Mix. I love that! That is something Brazil should have as well. in my Pick ´n Mix bag there is always salty licorice and chocolate. The Swedish milk chocolate is like no other. A perfect mixture of milk and chocolate.

The chocolate in Brazil is weaker, the chocolate taste is not as strong.

I have sweet tooth but it has to be sweet without taking away the flavor of the candy itself.

How do you like your sweets? Do you have a favorite candy?

I don't really like candy that much. But I do enjoy licorice from time to time. I am also not a huge chocolate person, but I do enjoy dark chocolate with espresso pieces!

I used to live in Norway and I really loved the chocolate there!
