Today a freak rainstorm has been knocking out my access to both my internet connection and my television reception! It's been a stress filled week, and the week is still quite young!

I don't know about you, but the occasional stress pick me up, especially on 'one of those days' is a must, and I can't think of a better 'pick me up' than chocolate!

OK, in all fairness I probably don't need an excuse to eat chocolate, and few would accuse me of skipping dessert, LOL :)

But every now and again when the day starts swirling around me, I become painfully aware of the need for some 'me' time, a moment to make the day just stop.

And today I did just that!

I will admit another guilty pleasure of mine is a midnight snack when I'm writing, I like to work when the world is half asleep. Or at least when my world is half asleep.

You will notice in my posts or on twitter, I sometimes mention I'm still wide awake working and would someone send snacks, we'll I'm super happy to report that someone heard my bat signal. Someone very cute and round who has a giggle that I can imitate spot on. Yes, you guessed it, PILLSBURY - straight from the Doughboy himself to my kitchen. Well, it might not have been that simple, OK, there was a middle man, I'll admit it! It was more like straight from Pillsbury to My Blog Spark, and My Blog Spark to me!

This post would have been up sooner, but my three nearest supermarkets didn't have it yet, and I just recently found it available at a Supermarket a little out of the way from my normal buying trip. But I will report the minor inconvenience was SO worth it!

Not so long ago I reviewed some delightful Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes (I won't mention any names here, but you can check my archives if you are curious), and they did have me spoiled, I thought I couldn't possbily fall for another. Until now, that is. I might just have a new lava cake love in my life. It's Pillsbury Sweet Moments Molten Lava Brownie!

I haven't tried all of them yet, but I wanted to let you know that Pillsbury Sweet Moments come in two varieties, Bite-Size Brownies, which are layered with either rich caramel or fudge and chocolaty coating; and the Molten Lava Cakes. I can't yet speak for the bites, but I'm so glad I opted for the Molten Lava Cakes instead, since they need to be warmed in the microwave, I knew I would be more prone to take a moment for me. To really enjoy it and savor it. With the bites, I'm quite sure I would have worked at my desk while eating them, and not have had the same 'Me Time' Experience!
"They are single-serve bowls of chocolate nirvana that come in rich caramel or fudge. Each are covered in decadent chocolate or creamy caramel and topped with a chocolate drizzle." ~Ascending Butterfly

And as someone who loves stationery and crafting, I have to take a moment to tell you how this was packaged. It was sent in round mini nesting boxes that contained pampering bath products in addition to the coupon for my Pillsbury sweet moment. Yes, I have already re-purposed the cute boxes. And absolutely enjoyed the 'chocolate' scented bath time treats. I know most of us are lucky to squeeze in a shower before running out the door, but a scented bath is always an amazing way to get centered!

To say that I rate these highly is probably an understatement, the cakes are sweet and sinful, and the chocolate scented bath treats in their lovely packaging was just icing on the cake of my 'Me Moment' Perfection.
