Sweets, Graham cracker Houses, and the Dentist (Eeek!)

So... I've got a confession.

I was looking through some holiday photos and I realized... eek I may have gone a bit  WAY overboard with the sugar.  Yikes.  Apparently I have a tiny HUGE sweet tooth.

On top of the lovely goodies that we ate at parties, hubby and I also devoured sweets at home.  Hrmm... all that sugar.... maybe we're part Elf?  Here's a review of some of our homemade holiday goodies... 

1.  Hubby made us a couple of  homemade cafe mochas.  He mixed 1T cocoa, 1T hot water, and 1 T sugar in a cup.  Then, he added 1 shot of espresso (or double strength coffee) and topped that with with 1/2C of warmed and frothed milk.  Sweet and yurmmy...

Keep on reading to see more sweet goodies...




2.  So many of my friends made chocolate covered pretzels for Christmas.  They looked so yummy that we got in on the fun too.  Although Chuck couldn't eat the goodies, he really enjoyed dipping the pretzels in chocolate and sprinkling a TON of sprinkles over them.  They were super yummy and the perfect mixture of sweet and salty.






3.  Every year we've made graham cracker houses and this year was no exception.  (To see previous years' houses, click here and here.) We invited a friend over and made three lovely and tasty houses. NHere's a photo of our friend's house:




And here's a photo of hubby's patriotic abode...




And here's a photo of Chuck and my house...  




See the mountain of candy?  See the collapsed roof?  Apparently my son really REALLY enjoys decorating with candy.  Poor house.  It didn't stand a chance.



Oh, and did you see his green mouth?  Yup.  My son is a lover of green sprinkles. 


5.  And what to do with the leftover candies and graham crackers?  We couldn't just toss them out... oh no..... we ended up turning them into smores in the microwave.



Happy Friday and I hope you have a great weekend!  I've got a dentist's appointment Saturday morning so fingers crossed that I don't have any new cavities, ok?


(Is it bad that I'm now thinking of the leftover fruitcake in the fridge?  Yurmmy....)
