My friends know that I often describe things as “the best”, “most favorite”, “at the absolute top”, and “the most excellent”. I fully understand that by making everything my most favorite fill-in-the-blank I start to lose my credibility to rate things. Today (and always) I can say with “most certainty” that Willy Wonka and Chocolate Factory is my most favorite movie of all time.
Maybe it’s the part where Veruca Salt sings “I want it now” and is deemed a bad egg. Or the part where Charlie and his grandpa drink too much fizzy lifting drink and need to burp their way down to safety. How can anyone forget the lickable wall in the candy factory? “Snozzberries taste like snozzberries”. But who am I kidding? I know my favorite parts are when Willy Wonka would say something completely sarcastic and innapropriate… “The suspense is terrible… I hope it’ll last.”
I’d like to think that the movie somehow shaped my love for sweets and maybe even my view of the world… “If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it. Anything you want to, do it; want to change the world… there’s nothing to it.” -Willy Wonka
Now enjoy these pics of my newest sweet creation. “Red” Velvet Nibbles. No food dye was used in the creation of these Nibbles hence the brown velvet. With a secret ingredient of vanilla yogurt these Nibbles are moist, spongie and beyond delicious. The vanilla cream cheese frosting tops the Nibble and gives it a well-rounded vanilla/chocolate bite – the perfect balance!
