Nat'l Dessert Day...Food and Sex

I picked a good day to blog about my two favorite romance things to and sex! What more could a romance lover ask for?

Most popular dessert treat? Anything with chocolate. I don't think there's a woman on this planet that doesn't want chocolate and dreams of the tasty warm feeling it makes as it slowly melts in your mouth and slides down your throat. It's an aphrodisiac, a food that spices up a romantic encounter.

Yes, it's a comfort food and used in times of stress...or anytime the urge strikes. But mix together candlelight, chocolate, and an adoring hero, and how could a heroine avoid rampaging hormones? Feeding each other chocolate, and the taste/smell of it, will send your sex drive into overtime.

Food always seems to creep into my romance books. Eating can be so sensual and enticing. Using food to...ahem...make lovemaking more lust-filled and passionate, can create a mouth-watering image as a reader fantasizes about a yummy scene. Chocolate, strawberries, honey...I've used all of these in my sex scenes, and also cannoli cream!

Hungry yet?
In "Strip Poker for Two" (by April Ash), my hero and heroine find ways to spread and then lick off cannoli cream they've put on each other's body. Honey is mentioned in "Gone to the Dogs" (Marianne Stephens). Strawberries and champagne are in "Anything You Can Do" (Marianne Stephens). And, I have a fondue scene in a restaurant that I hope leaves readers craving warm chocolate in "Gone to the Dogs".

Getting some ideas for lovemaking feasts?

Here's a dessert recipe for something yummy:


1 cup flour
½ cup chopped nuts
½ butter or margarine
9 oz. cream cheese
1 cup powered sugar
2 cups Cool Whip
2 3-oz packages instant pudding, any flavor (chocolate is great!)
2 cups cold milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Mix together flour, nuts and butter/margarine. Press into a 9X13 glass baking
dish. Bake for 15 minutes.
Cream powdered sugar and cream cheese until creamy.
Add 1 cup Cool Whip.
Spread over cooled crust.
Mix pudding packages with milk. When thick, spread over cream cheese layer.
Spread 1 cup Cool Whip over pudding layer and freeze.
To Serve, thaw slightly at room temperature. Refrigerate remaining dessert.

Share this with someone you love! AND...calories don't count on National Dessert Day so be naughty, indulge, and enjoy!

  1. The dessert sounds wonderful, of course I'm one of those people who believe you should eat dessert first! And if it's chocolate, I'd eat it first and last. Food always creeps into my books as well--must have something to do with sharing:-)

  2. I enjoyed the post. All the talk of chocolate sent me in search of some. I will have to try the recipe.

  3. Talk about making me crave some chocolate - good thing I always keep a stash in my desk at work. It's just too bad I can't do the same with the sex! LOL! Will definitely be trying out that recipe, though. Sounds awesome!

  4. Oh, this dessert sounds wonderful. Thanks for the recipe. Tell me though, is it okay to add more whipped cream? I really enjoy whipped cream. ;)

  5. I made a dessert like that years ago and believe me . . . it was yummy!!!!!! The only thing different is the crust using nuts, which sounds fabulous!!!! Great idea, one I'm sure my man will love . . . as well as those in my books!

  6. Mmm... that does sound delicious! What a treat to make!

  7. I have dreams of licking chocolate off my man. And even better him licking it off of me. Wink!

  8. Hey everyone...thanks for go make this dessert!
    Mary - You can try adding more cool whip/cream...have fun!

  9. that does sound fabulous!!! (and not just because i'm hungry! LOL!)
