The Perfect "Me-Time" Treat:
Dark Chocolate

 I'm an introvert by nature and I think that one of the hardest transitions for me into motherhood has been the dramatic reduction in "me-time."  Over the last year, I have made it a priority to carve out a little bit of time for me each day, because honestly, I am a much better mom, wife and person when I can get that time to recharge my batteries.  Today I am sharing two easy "me-time" ideas.  One for after lunch, and one for after dinner, both refreshing and both perfect for a busy lifestyle.

One of the ways I like to create the perfect "me-time" is a coffee break and my favorite go-to treat, dark chocolate, after my daughter goes down for her nap!  HERSHEY'S BLISS Dark Chocolate is rich, creamy and the perfect compliment to my dark roast coffee.  I love that I can grab one or two individual squares for a portion-friendly treat to accompany my mid-day coffee break.  Sometimes I drop them directly into my coffee and let them melt, creating a bittersweet mocha that is delicious!

Another way I like to create "me-time" is after dinner, with a good magazine or book.  I wait until Zion is tucked in for the night and the husband is taking some time for himself.  I make my way to my favorite comfy spot on the couch.  Reading a magazine from cover to cover feels like such a luxury to me, and pairing that with a few squares of HERSHEY'S SPECIAL DARK Dark Chocolate with Almonds for dessert makes me feel like a queen!  I have this weird thing about cold dark chocolate so I keep my HERSHEY'S dark chocolate in the fridge until I'm ready to break off a few perfectly-proportioned squares.

Duane Reade is my favorite go-to place to buy HERSHEY'S dark chocolate, because of their convenient locations, short lines and selection.  I often stop by my favorite Duane Reade store right after I do my grocery to stock up on my HERSHEY'S dark chocolate and browse the latest beauty products.  I love that I can get in and out in a hurry, which is super important for my busy lifestyle.

How do you carve out the perfect "me-time"?  What is your favorite way to enjoy dark chocolate?
