The best ideas

When I get together with my sister Coco, the brilliant ideas we come up with astound me.

Take tonight's creation, for example. It is simply divine.

Start with one bottle Caramel Sauce from Starbucks. It is buttery decadence in a bottle.



See? It even says so on the bottle... "Sweet. Decadent. Buttery."

I would not lie about such things.

Add Oreo cookies.


You could go generic, but why not go for the gusto?


Since we're trying to teach the cute fuzzy girl in the first picture to not suck on her fingers anymore, resist the urge to eat the caramel by itself-- at least in her presence.

If the aforementioned cutie-patootie girl sees you anyway and asks what you are doing, you have two choices. You can lie. Or you can bribe her to not tell anyone else in the house.

Because then we might have to share.




Emily really likes caramel. But not as much as she likes to suck her fingers.

(I held back a little with that cookie up there. I don't want y'all to think I'm a piggy.)


*oink*

Dorking out on our laptops and creating magical recipes is the perfect way to spend an evening with my big sister.

How do you spend your evenings when visiting family?

I know! Someone seriously needs to get their rear in gear and post something!

I have a tummy ache.

Christine said...

Those were delicious! I have a feeling I won't be able to sleep well tonight. Ugh! Sooooo good though. I think I'll have another dollop.... I mean drop. :)

See, it was a good thing that FB Scrabble was refusing to cooperate with you two tonight!

I think we need a side of toothpaste to go with that caramel!

Coco, when you say you need another drop of caramel, you might as well say swig!

Kinda reminds me of I Love Lucy and the Vetavitavegamin-- all you need is right here in this little bottle...

I simply adore caramel!

Angie said...

I think I just got a cavity, simply from looking at that. :) But it does look good. My guilty pleasure lately is deep fried oreos.

I love getting together with family. We usually just hang out and stuff ourselves.

i don't normally have either oreos or caramel in the house. ironically and unfortunately, right at the moment, i do. or would that be "fortunately"? this is bad, very bad...

Looks yummy! When my sister and I get together we usually pop popcorn and watch a chick flick!

Suzanne said...

oh my goodness. evil. or divine. or both?
oreos are my favorite!

Leanne said...

Wow.

Hmmm.

Words fail me. It looks like a fast sugar high...

But I LOOOOOOOVE caramel! I did admit to ya'll the other day that I do by the huge bottles of Torani caramel at Cash and Carry......I looove me some caramel!

I wouldn't have thought of that one though...

Next, try putting peanut butter between to Ritz crackers and dipping them in melted chocolate chips. Put them on wax paper and chill them for about 30 minutes.

Oh yeah baby!

Goofy, but yum!

Debbie said...

Oh. My. Goodness. YUM! I will make sure to have Oreos and Starbucks caramel sauce here at Christmas--I know Aubs will like it, too! I'm so jealous--wish I could be there! Love you :)

Sprittibee said...

SuperAngel said...

Alison said...

Salivating. Thanks.

Karin Katherine said...

I hope my girls grow up to enjoy the same "dorky" things that you do with your sis.

Aw, I wish I had a sister to make concoctions with.
