Max Brenner – The Forum Shops At Caesars Palace

I've been to Las Vegas many times, and I always walk the shops at Caesars Palace. I always find myself looking at this restaurant Max Brenner as it's also called "Chocolate by the Bald Man" which always seems a bit odd to me. I wanted to go there for sure this one trip and so we went in for a lunch!
During this visit, it was in the winter, so it was actually pouring rain. I knew I wanted something hot, and my favourite go to drink is a hot chocolate. I ended up ordering their Choco-Pops Hot Chocolate which was amazing! It's a delicious milk hot chocolate with little chocolate wafer balls that floated on top and added a phenomenal crunchy texture while enjoying the hot chocolate!
We also ordered a cold drink, just to add some variety! So, we ordered the Hazelnut Cream Chocolate Milkshake which was very tasty and not overly sweet as you may want to expect. It's a hazelnut chocolate milkshake with vanilla ice cream, chocolate truffle, and topped with whipped cream! This drink was excellent and it was something full of flavour!
As this was a lunch, we ordered their Illegal Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Pancakes which was a huge stack of giant chocolate pancakes, topped with chocolate truffle cream, chocolate shavings and caramelized bananas! This is the breakfast for those who need sugar to start your day - and the great thing about it was the fact it wasn't overly sweet at all! In fact, you know it's chocolate but it's not overwhelming at all! I absolutely loved the caramelized bananas with these pancakes and I think this is one of their signature meals, so I would recommend it too! :)
The last thing we ordered to share was the Chocolate Hazelnut Crepe which as the name implies was a beautiful and delicate crepe filled with chocolate hazelnut spread then topped with strawberries. It also comes with a little flask of milk chocolate ganache!
At the end, we were extremely stuffed! We would never had imagined the chocolate pancakes would be such a large portion. We ate as much as we could but we definitely finished the drinks! Afterwards, we wandered the gift shop and made a few delectable purchase too! I'm sure we will return as this was an experience I've been recommending everyone - and I want more!

Christie’s RITZ Limited Edition Fudge Covered Crackers

RITZ Crackers are known for a nice buttery flaky crispy crunch with a lightly salted exterior for a cracker. When I found that Christie's put out a limited edition for Fudge Covered Ritz Crackers I knew this would be a winner! These crackers are still exactly like how they're suppose to be, but they are completely covered with a milk chocolate fudge coating which gives it a sweet aspect to the cracker. The balance here with the sweet and salty was a genius idea as it really worked well together. The crunch with a subtle sweetness and the saltiness seems weird at first, but you really do enjoy it after you had 2 crackers! It's simple, and it's definitely not too sweet at all! I believe this would be a product I would purchase again if it's still available!

Mrs Fields – Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie

I really enjoy the individually wrapped large cookies from Mrs Fields. When I saw that they had a new flavour - Peanut Butter Chocolate I knew it was a cookie I wanted to try.
It's not widely available yet as I have been able to find them at Shoppers Drug Mart only, and not in any of my local grocery stores. I'm sure it'll be there soon though!
These cookies are quite large - as it's about the size of my palm. It's soft and chewy with chunks of peanut butter and chocolate.
I've tried to heat the cookie in the microwave for a softer ooey gooey melt, it actually falls apart. I've tried both 10 seconds, and the cookie becomes too soft. At 5 seconds, it still falls apart and the chocolate doesn't warm thoroughly. I think I would have to bake it it for a fresh cookie taste and texture - which feels like a lot of work for a single cookie right now.
