I have lots of little goals for 2018: keep my pantry clean, consistently do yoga, plan a for-real vacation, call my mom more. But rather than get overwhelmed by all the things I want to change, I’m doing my best to keep one resolution at the forefront: be kind to myself. Not only does this mean forgiving myself when I inevitably forget to wipe down my fridge or text my sister, but it also means doing things that bring me joy. And one of those joyful things involves chocolate. Simply eating it feels like a kind activity, but if I want to take it even further, I bake all sorts of chocolatey cakes and cookies. It's the perfect treat from me to me. If you, too, are trying to be kinder to yourself this year, here are 17 chocolate-filled ways.
