Weekly Photo Challenge: Sweets 4 the Sweet

Sweets are my downfall in life, my drug of choice.  Mostly chocolate, but I do gravitate towards anything that is sweet.  I am very particular that my sweets not be overly sweet.  How some can scoop teaspoon after teaspoon of sugar into their coffee or tea is beyond me.  Go with one Tablespoon of those flavored creamers or scant 1 tsp of sugar if used instead.

I should mention I have been a “borderline Diabetic” for many years and really have to watch my diet, exercise and my weight to keep it from going full force on me so messing with sweets can be as dangerous as a druggie with actual drugs.  I have been so bad for so many years now, that I got another wake up again a few weeks ago that will scare me into being good again for a while anyway.

Mostly I just do dark chocolate right now but on Valentines Day I was alone and feeling like I needed a treat with no chocolate in the house and bad weather outside.  I made some bite size brownies with my mini muffin tins and used those disposable Wilton bags to decorate them with homemade pink buttercream frosting.

Can use 1/2 C all purpose flour if cake flour n/a. Add pinch of salt if using unsalted butter & not watching sodium intake.

Still take out my kids artwork for holidays!

    I have recently stopped putting sugar in my hot drinks, because I was aware I was consuming too much sugar. Also, I’m convinced that Coca-Cola majorly contributes to diabetes so I’m trying to cut that out!

    Hope you enjoyed your brownies, though!

    God bless and praying you have a great week.

      I figure anything in moderation won’t be that bad, for now. I do always cut the sugar in any recipe I use. Used to divide it in half for all my recipes. You have to experiment. I have not had colas or pop in many years now. I tried some the other day, yikes, when you are not used to it! Take care and God bless!

        I totally agree – anything in moderation. It’s when we start becoming addicted to things that the problems start! God bless you too – have a great week 🙂
