OH MY GOD all the food treats we have amassed this Christmas – it’s a veritable Christmas Treats Smorgasbord! It pays to have a lot of foodie friends that know how to cook, and even those that don’t cook still brought over tons of delicious treats that are ruining our fitness regimes. Are you enjoying a similar dilemma at your house?

Crackilious!

A sampler platter of just some of our hoard:

  • Tin of homemade cookies including sugar cookies, chocolate buttons and some other amazing jam-filled things
  • Tin of cinnamon and sugar candied pecans (AKA crack)
  • Box of salted dark-chocolate covered almonds (AKA crack-times-two)
  • Gigantic barrel tin of various popcorn flavors, including caramel, cheddar, garlic and plain
  • More cheese than exists in all of Wisconsin
  • Numerous bottles of champagne whose vintners we have never heard of
  • Ginger beer
  • Chocolate beer
  • Buddha beer
  • Beer beer
  • Eleventy bottles of wine in various flavors and colors

Crackilicious times two.

  • White chocolate macadamia nut cookies
  • Oreo cheesecake (ok, I made that)
  • Two boxes of See’s Candies (nuts and chews, of course)
  • More candied pecans
  • A variety of Lindt candy bars you only ever see at Christmas
  • Summer sausages (???)
  • Beef jerky
  • Assorted caramels
  • Several rolls of Mentos (I know, WTF?)
  • Ghirardelli chocolates
  • Walker’s Shortbread fingers

Phew! And that’s not all of it. I just want to thank the baby jesus that no one brought us that nasty fruitcake.

And you???

My only complaint about this Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares is that they are too damn small.
