My sweet tooth is something else. I'm not sure about you, but I transform into a ravenous monster when I'm around sugary treats. If there's a bag of soft chocolate chip cookies within my reach, forget it, I'll demolish a sleeve of them in under five minutes. My mother's an excellent baker, so I blame her. Though I attempt to maintain a healthy diet, often packing a glossy looking apple to snack on, I can't resist the occasional slice of cake or pie. I even bake dessert bread in my free time, as I find the ritual of it soothing. If you're invested in scrumptious sweets like me, especially chocolate, these four kitchen gadgets are a must-have.

Submerge your fruit of choice with this spiral dipping tool

Okay, so. This spherical tool looks a little like something from a science fiction movie, but it's actually great for dipping strawberries in chocolate. Just place the fruit in the cup-like part of the tool and lower it into a pot of melted chocolate. Mmm, delicious. You can even make chocolate covered cherries too. If you're looking for a recipe that's easy to follow, don't worry, I got you covered.

Enjoy chocolate fondue in a mug

This product is absolutely genius. All you have to do is fill the top of the mug with a handful of chocolate chips and light the candle, which sits in an opening at the bottom. This set comes with two mugs and four forks, so there's no need to go out and buy additional materials. It seems like a fun gift for a college student, actually. I wish I had something like this mug when I was in college. I'd be making chocolate fondue on the daily.

Inject your banana with gooey chocolate

Bananas. What's not to love? They go great with peanut butter, chocolate, and so much more. Seriously, if you haven't had chocolate covered banana slices, you haven't really lived.

This fun product injects melted chocolate inside the core of your banana. It comes with squeeze bottles, but you're in charge of acquiring the filling. If chocolate isn't your favorite flavor, you can substitute it with strawberry sauce or something equally tasty. I can't personally vouch for how well the Destapa Banana works, but according to reviews on Amazon, this product seems to break easily.

Make your s'mores indoors

I love s'mores, but they're a summertime treat. Wouldn't it be great if you could make them all year round? Well, now you can thanks to this electric s'mores maker. Yep. You heard me right.

This device toasts your marshmallow using heat, not flame. Are you the kind of person that likes to burn their marshmallow to a crisp? I certainly am. I'm not sure how long it takes to toast a marshmallow on this device, but you might have better luck with fire if you're looking to scorch your sugary puff. It also comes with a handy tray, which stores your graham crackers and squares of chocolate.
