I couldn’t resist sharing a few of the wonderful treats we enjoyed at our Christmas dinner. Having a baker for a mom makes these holidays extra special…and fattening!
Of course, we enjoyed some of the leftovers from my holiday candy making.
My neighbor pal, Katie, also exchanges a few goodies with me each year too. This year she made my hubby’s fave, pretzel’s with chocolate and M&M’s and those cute little reindeer cookies.
She also shared a few of these chocolate pretzels…YUM!
My mom made her always fabulous chocolate dream pie.
Complete with chocolate shavings!
My mom knows that Derek is a choco-o-holic so she tried out a new cheesecake this year…
Marbled chocolate cheesecake. It was fantastic! And yes, she fretted about the crack. Perfectionist I tell ya.
And finally, she took the sugar coma right over the edge and brought up these pretty pumpkin rolls.
Pumpkin is a squash. Squash is a veg. We’re all good in the hood then, right?
To say that we were all unbuttoning the tops of our jeans is an understatement.
More like, “Who’s putting on their jammies first? I dyin’ here!”
I love the holidays. Gluttony.
Good thing we bought Just Dance for the Wii to work off those extra calories.
Now, bring on the New Year!Pin It
