Christmas Party Food

It's been a busy week, but that's what we expect for December, right?

We had two Christmas parties to attend this weekend. Fun times. Shocking practical jokes (sorry Moe, still couldn't resist it...). Excessive amounts of delicious food. TOO much sugar! Don't get me wrong, I love sweets as much as the rest of you, and I come by it honestly. But, if I plan to survive the Christmas season AND fit in a nice dress come spring, I'm going to have to pace myself.

Here's what I made on Saturday:
 Homemade Twix Bars from Cupcake Lady at Hoosier Homemade. Delectable but SO rich.
As evidenced by the horribly shifted one in the center of the picture, I must advise you to refrigerate for as LONG as possible after spreading on the frosting. Please. Other than that, it's a fun and simple recipe! No baking involved.

This next one, on the other hand, took lots of baking! I can take absolutely no credit for the deliciousness that is this Chocolate Raspberry Cobbler. This is all the work of the amazing hubby. On this one, I implore you to allow extra time for baking before you have to rush it out the door to the party with toothpicks keeping the casserole carrier from sticking to the top. Also, the "1 1/2 cube butter" that's listed as the first ingredient actually means 1 1/2 sticks or 3/4 C.
Please make this. Anyone that is not diabetic will thank you. (The picture doesn't do it justice.)


  1. Ooooh, these look utterly delicious. I'll have a bit of both, please!!


  2. Okay, this is just too good not to make. I'm writing it down now! Thanks!

  3. Mmmmmmm! I'm hungry for a sweet treat!

  4. I'm so glad you liked the Twix. Yes, you do need to keep them in the fridge until they are set, although, we like ours a little gooey :-)
    Thanks for the mention!
    Merry Christmas!

  5. Ah!! I feel like I let you down! =( But, I'm SO glad you shared the recipe--I'll definitely have to work on perfecting it. ;-)


I love your comments and questions! I'll reply as soon as I am able. Thanks for visiting!
