Crazy Sweet Tuesday

Welcome to Crazy Sweet Tuesday, where sugar is the main event!

Before we start the party, I want to give a shout out to a fabulous photographer here in the Sacramento area (well, Rocklin/Roseville if you know where that is). Kellie from Kirkpatrick Photography did our family photos last weekend and they are fabulous! If you are looking to get some photos done for Christmas or just because, go check her out. Take a look at some of the awesome shots she got:

{I think I need to get Mel a shotgun. ;)}

{I’m not sharing the 3 of us…because, well. It’s my Christmas card and I haven’t sent them yet!}

I know she’s running some specials through December 31, 2012 and you can get some awesome photos for very affordable prices. You can also find her on Facebook. Tell her I said hello! :)

Now, onto the features!

Peppermint Fudge by Shugary Sweets

Peppermint Crumble Bars by Something Swanky

Better Than Cookie Dough Cheeseball by White Lights on Wednesday

Nutty Coconut Caramels by The Kitchen Prep

Nutella Oatmeal Lace Cookies by Half Baked Harvest

And the most clicked sweet was (and I’m sooo not surprised by this because I got a mouthful of dust when I licked my screen before I remembered they weren’t actually on it, just a mere photo):
