A warmer winter, well, we're heading to Spring actually, and my blue mood from yesterday equalled me hunting for comfort food, or in this case, comfort dessert. What would my comfort dessert be on a warm day? Vanilla, chocolate and caramel ice cream with Smarties on top! Smarties are candy coated milk chocolates. So yes, I buy ice cream that has a layer of vanilla, chocolate and caramel, I take a scoop of each flavour in a bowl and sprinkle Smarties over it, then I sit down and dive that bowl with a spoon! I like to believe it comforts me. And I think it did cheer me up a bit yesterday with all of you on myLot also cheering me up, because yet again I was shown we are all just doing the best we can in this journey called life. I am sure we have all been asked this question many times, but, what dessert or food do you hunt for when you are feeling blue? What is your comfort food? It can be something salty too. My salty comfort food is pop corn and pizza. Photos are of my comfort dessert! Anyone want a bowl?

I like chocolate and vanilla ice cream, not the caramel and not the smarties. My salty comfort food is pizza, the sweet is chocolate mousse, I can make it in no time.

Without a doubt, my sweet comfort food is chocolate. Anything that has chocolate in it will do. And the darker the chocolate, the better. I'm a certified chocoholic! And since you mentioned pizza, I guess that would also be considered a good comfort food for me. Pizza is awesome!

We all need comfort food at one time or another. Mine is definitely something salty. Today I had a bowl of salted and buttered popcorn and hummus with pita chips. I'm not much of a sweet eater, but love ice cream and chocolate turtles with almonds or pecans. As I write this, I just passed on a slice of cake left over from my dinner party last night. It looked very much like the cake your dad bought!!!

This looks like the perfect dessert to have in summer. My comfort food is definitely pizza and I love crisps and do eat a lot of them despite the fact that they are unhealthy.

I like your comfort foods. I might substitute the Smarties for a crumbled chocolate chip cookie on top of the ice cream, with Hersey's syrup on top, and whip cream on top of that! And no, I am not overweight if that's what your thinking Also I love pizza which is good anytime. Ever have cold pizza for breakfast? Back in my college days it was delicioussss!

Oh! I can totally go with that, the chocolate chip cookie crumbled over the ice-cream! Weight? What's that? Ahem, of course I have had cold pizza for breakfast, it tastes just as good, and sure beats a bowl of cereal . Okay, now I am craving pizza
