A little something sweet

Usually when I’m craving a snack or a treat, I almost always opt for something salty. Nachos, like the kind you can only get at some mundane sporting event, are my ultimate guilty pleasure. Yet, on Tuesday when I discovered that a Krispy Kreme doughnut shop opened up in the Madison area, I instantly began craving one of their warm, sugary melt-in-your mouth heavenly creations.

And so yesterday, I decided to satisfy my craving. Josh and I braved the end of rush hour traffic for the 20 minute drive to Wisconsin’s newest distraction; we were not disappointed. We were able to pass up the offer to purchase a dozen and instead each indulged in a single doughnut. Chocolate frosting and sprinkles have never tasted so good.

Despite satisfying my doughnut craving, however, that single Krispy Kreme has me wanting a whole lot more. After eating my last store-bought miniature brownie (as seen here) today, I giddily discovered that I had a single package of Girl Scout cookies hidden inside my cupboard.

Unfortunately, when I purchased these cookies from a friend who was selling them for her little sister, I decided to get the crunchy fudge-coated kind that is so affectionately known as the Thanks-A-Lot cookie. Why I opted out of purchasing the classic (and personal favorite) Samoa, or even the Thin Mint, is beyond me.

Fortunately, thanks to one of my favorite blogs, Cupcakes and Cashmere, I discovered recipes for making homemade Thin Mints and Samoas that I’m now dying to try.
