Sugar High

A journey through pictures on the hard drive has left me with an idea of sorts- a picture post of sweet treats. Since Halloween is over for yet another year, and we're left with a ton of not so good for you temptations it may give you some ideas about what to do with your leftovers!  If nothing else, the pictures may make you drool!

Without further delay-

Candy Mountain
Affectionately called Candy Mountain, this is a top view of Ice Cream Sandwich Cake- ice cream sandwiches layered with whipped topping, chocolate syrup and your favourite candy bars.  Big hit at the family picnic- and a little bit goes a LONG way!

Candy Mountain Mud Slide! 
Oh, it was worth it!

Monster Cookie Dough Dip
Oh, no- you DIDN'T!  Um, yeah, I did.  And I liked it!  Cream cheese, sugar, peanut butter (or soy nut butter) oatmeal and chocolate.  Dip graham crackers, (or to pretend you're being healthy) go for apples.  Tart green ones are the best!

I liked it!

Nobody has to know just how man calories are in there.  It's a treat.  Again, totally worth it!

Did someone say s'mores?
Oh, you like s'mores?  Me too.  An  addiction that will likely end with an early grave for me.


Nothing but graham crackers, marshmallow and two squares of chocolate.  The kids don't like them- they say they are too sweet.  Puhshaw.

S'more chocolate chip cookies

My favourite chocolate chip cookie
recipe altered with a touch of pure graham flour, milk chocolate chips and rolled around a marshmallow.  For when you're in a pinch....

Fireless S'mores

Since we were under a fire ban for a good portion of the summer, the family picnic had an altered version of s'mores- marshmallows dipped in chocolate and coated with crushed graham crackers.

Smartie Pants Marshmallows
While we're on the subject of marshmallows, these were yummy too- dipped in chocolate and rolled in chopped smarties.

Yummy Mummy

That brings me back to ice cream- two gourmet chocolate chunk cookies make the perfect vessel for homemade vanilla ice cream.  It doesn't get much better than this....

Chocolate Chunk with Toasted Cashews

I find myself back at cookies.  Need I say more?

Oatmeal Coconut Sandwich Cookies

There is not often a shortage of cookies in this house.  The ones on the left are oatmeal coconut filled with high calorie high protein sunflower butter frosting, the right are filled with fresh raspberry jam.

Fudge Topped Oatmeal Cookies
Then we have Fudge Topped Oatmeal Cookies.  They kind of made my teeth hurt, but I would totally do it again!

Oh my!  I'm not even 6 months back in pictures and I still have so many you haven't seen!  What are your favourite Sugar High Treats?  I'm going to keep searching and see what else I find, but in the mean time- if you dropped by for a quick peek don't forget to say hi!
