Give up sweets?

I keep trying to cut out sweets but several Chicago venues keep tempting me with their toothsome treats. Kopi sells something called the kitchen sink cookie, oatmeal-based with walnuts, raisins plus dark, white and milk chocolate chips. Sugar coma, here I come.
Whenever I’m near the Third Coast on Dearborn, I find myself being irresistibly drawn to their scones to go. How do I choose between raspberry, blueberry or chocolate? If I want a dessert experience, it’s definitely the chocolate. Yum!

If a yen for a really authentic and buttery croissant descends upon me, I can count on the chocolate variety found at Vanille Patisserie. This place wins the award for the most Parisian patisserie in Chicago. They also have award-winning brownies with caramel.
For a really intense chocolate fix, try the insanely rich chocolate cookies at Sweet Mandy B’s.  

There’s a theme here, all of my favorite items contain chocolate. Stay tuned for a list of my favorite chocolate purveyors. I guess I will start the sweets moratorium next week, or maybe next month?
