How did THESE get here...???
El Diablo. Beelzebub. Satan. Resident Evil. El Chupacabra.
Pleased to meet you...hope you guess my name.
Pictured above is the latest bit of holiday devilry to enter my home. I have a very large and well-known weakness for sugar. No chocolate (I know, I know...but honestly, it does NOTHING for me!), just the sweet goodness of sugar in many forms. Caramel. Cotton candy (my highlight of 2007 involves a carnival-grade cotton candy machine at my disposal, at WORK). Sweetened condensed milk, straight from the can. Baskin-Robins Pink Bubblegum ice cream. Chewy Spree, Runts, and Sweet-Tart candies. Skittles gum. And the best candy ever? Razzles. First its a candy, then its a gum. Brilliant mad sugar scientists are working very hard in a laboratory somewhere to keep me addicted/happy.
In a pinch, I've been known to carmelize brown sugar with a bit of butter and drizzle it over fruit (everyone knows that fresh fruit negates all sugar calories, right?). Don't worry, once these cookies are gone, I'll be sated...until the Easter version shows up at the grocery.
