I would definitely classify chocolate as a Simple Pleasure.  Especially for Day 4 of the 31 Days of said pleasures.

And I'm also feeling guilty.  Because really, truly, I SHOULD have shared this with you sooner.
It's a Homemade Fudge recipe from Taste of Home's Quick Cooking Sept/Oct 1999.  You know Taste of Home recipes are keepers.
As a Sugar Snob, I love sweet stuff, but it's gotta be good, or forget it!
I've been making this for years.  You can have fudge in just a few minutes with this recipe.

Coffee Shop Fudge

3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
2 T strong brewed coffee
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
Put all the above in a microwave safe bowl.  Microwave, stopping to stir every 30 seconds or so.  Mini chips get melted in like a minute or 2. 

Mix together with a spatula, and add:

1 tsp vanilla
Stir together.
Place in a foil lined 8 inch square pan, with buttered foil.
Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, until firm.
Cut into squares.  You do NOT need to keep refrigerated.

And there you have it.  Simple.  Delicious.  Pleasure!

Continuing on the 31 Days........

Oh yes... possibly the most ultimate simple pleasure of all is chocolate. It's really a category all its own.

I need to try the recipe.
Just not when I'm home alone.
Because, well, you know...

Confession: I just bought a Three Musketeers bar!
