Chocolate, almonds, caramel, repeat...

Yum.. these are my favorites, in almost any combinations!

Someone sent in chocolate covered almonds to work, and I just
happened to see them.. I think I ate more than I should have... ugh.

Then, Mark bought me Almond M & M's (well, I convinced him to buy them)
for my stocking, and I have definitely made a dent in the bag. Good thing I
am going to work today, away from the M&M's . (the almonds at work are GONE!)

We got a box of See's chocolate - variety - from his mom , but the kids aren't too
happy that any caramels in the box.. are MINE!

Thankfully, checking the scale this morning, all these almonds have not
been too detrimental to the weight loss...

What are your favorite Christmas candies or cookies? I know mine are available most of the
time...

I didn't even make my favorite cookies this year - only made gingersnaps (soft ones!)

We are having a game night with neighbors on Friday, so maybe I'll make them for that.
My family hasn't complained much that there weren't any cookies this year - I made banana
bread and chocolate zucchini bread this year for neighbors.

Apparently the zucc bread was a hit! And you can eat it with butter if you like, Sassy!

Happy New Year Everyone!

I am right there with you. One of my instructors gave me a can of Girl Scout Chocolate Covered Cashews. I had actually forgotten about them until now.

*whack*

I have four bags of PB M&Ms in my stocking. Everything else was loaded into the boys' stockings. I am going to try to not eat them all at once.

Well, believe it or not, but my favorite Christmas treat are those disgusting chocolate covered marshmallow Santas they have. Yeah, I know, gross huh? I can't keep my hands off of them. I love anything Peanut Butter too...

My youngest actually asked for chocolate peanut butter pretzels - there was a jar of them at cost plus - so she got them...to share! (none for me though - not much on PB flavored stuff.)

Boo - put the m&m's where you can't find them... it'll be better that way...

You are too funny...I did smear butter right across the top of it and it was fine....I also love caramel and nuts....one of my friends gave me a jar of homemade caramel and I ate it right out of the jar after throwing in a handful of fresh shelled walnuts and pecans....yummmy...oh and the scales...well it is a new year today so here we go starting the ol' diet again...

I love peanut brittle - or my grandma makes a wonderful pecan brittle! Yummy! You just can't go wrong if there's chocolate, nuts, and carmel involved!
