Hurry, you’ve got until Monday the 23rd at midnight, then I’ll randomly pick 3 winners and post the outcome Tuesday morning. Can’t wait to hear about all your favorite indulgences!

I’ll go first……I can never resist a good Dark Dark Chocolate bar or the gooey pizza cookie with lots of vanilla bean ice cream. Good Luck Everyone!Prize #1

    Hey Jenny-fun give away! I’m itching to do one myself…when I have something to give away.
    Secret guilty pleasure…hmm….lately I’ve developed a hankering for miniature sized Nestle Crunch Crisp candy bars. They remind me of the English candy “Lion Bars” that I used to buy daily when I lived in Israel. YUM!

    De-lurking because this sounds like so much fun. I love crispy and chewy semi-sweet chocolate chip cookies, chocolate cake with ganache frosting, and chocolate fondu. Yummy! Email: ber_99 @ Thanks!

    Texas sheetcake!! You know you always have to make sure the rows are even, so you cut off a little bit more, and more, and more….

    And I could eat almost a whole recipe’s worth of emergency cookies. They are no bakes, minus the peanut butter add coconut and then I freeze them. SOOO good.

    Wow, what a great generous idea! My can’t resist treat is my MIL’s peanut butter ritz coookies. She mixes marshmallow creme and peanut butter and makes a sandwich with ritz crackers. She then dunks the whole thing in melted dark chockolate. I know they sound strange, but they are like a peanutty, salty s’more. YUM!!

    Poulsen Family says:

    Wow, I just found your blog through someones link and have been spending a lot of time drooling over the recipes. I love a cold cone of rocky road ice cream in the summer and warm brownies in the winter. I’m going to have to try those peanut butter cup cheesecake bars though…it might be my newest guilty pleasure!

    Terri says:

    I should just say my guilty pleasure is sugar in general — but I love brownies! Any kind of brownies!

    Wow to only choose one is so hard. Kit Kat Caramel bars…S’more brownies…a good soft chewy cookie. I made your cookie dough brownie cups last week with the intention of sending them with my husband to a church thing, but they were so good that I had to swap a majority of them out with some chocolate chip cookies. They were too good. I am excited to try your recipes. We have a dinner group here in our area with 3 other families. We rotate making the main dish for dinner Monday -Thursday. We have it all planned out on a calendar for four months at a time. We have almost been doing it for 2 years now. It is so nice knowing that dinner will show up at your door 3 nights a week. I plan on using a lot of your recipes for our next four months. Thanks for sharing your creativity.

    i CANNOT, REPEAT CANNOT, resist a good gooey caramel corn recipe! I have such a great recipes that is so heavenly, it’s like angels dancing on my tongue! It’s the perfect combo of salty and sweet and gooeyiness I get tears just thinking about it. I know food shouldn’t make me so happy but caramel corn does..I have to go now, my eyes are watering along with my mouth and I can’t see the key board!!!

    Bonnie says:

    My GUILTY pleasure is Reese’s Peanut Butter cups and if I don’t have one around I will often grab a spoonful of peanut butter and a handful of chocolate chips. Desperate, I know!

    BROWNIES for sure!!!!!!!!!!

    Jacob & Noelle says:

    My “sweetness weekness” is goofey, hot, not-fully cooked, fudgy, chocolatey brownies. Mmmhmm. And topped with homemade vanilla ice with chocolate syrup and nuts. I’m craving it now!

    WF says:

    What fun giveaways. I have been reading your blog for a while and love the ideas! My favorite sweet treat is a scoop of Nutella on a bite of banana. I could finish an entire bunch of bananas this way!

    Amy says:

    Brownies! Brownies were always my weakness. So rich and chocolately and gooey, expecially when homemade. And they can be as low-key as a pair of jeans or classed up to suit anything. Like adding caramel with cashews and chocolate chips, or dashing in cinnamon and macademia nuts with a white chocolate glaze…
    Brownies are so versatile, and how can you go wrong with all that chocolate?

    Erika says:

    It is so hard to narrow it down to one! I am a sucker for cheesecake, any kind! But lately I have been eating caramels nonstop! The kind you buy individually wrapped. I bought them for cooking and eat them straight from the bag!

    Matt and Vanessa says:

    This was a hard one. I have a major sweet tooth; especailly when it comes to treats I grew up with like my grandma’s lemon bars and bakeless cookies or my mom’s homemade caramels. However since I have to pick just one, I decided on homemade fudge. We only make it once a year and it is filled with super yumminess.

    Lately I have been making all different kinds of trifles. My favorites have been with lots of fresh fruit and all sorts of different puddings. My favorite puddings have been…cheesecake, vanilla, banana cream and chocolate. I also prefer pound cake to the angel food, but I also tried it with brownies. Delicious! I have made 3 different types of trifles in the last month in a half. They have become my new all time favorite desserts.

    I CANNOT resist the chocolate cobbler at Cracker Barrel. Thankfully we live about 4 hours away from one or my hips would be HUGE!

    Candi says:

    Oh how hard! It all depends on what’s in front of me, but this is what’s on my mind at the moment: trail mix (nuts and chocolate), cheesecake, Cold Stone ice cream — those top the list right now.

    Jen & Daz says:

    Wow…how do you just pick one??? I have so many!!! I love anything chocolate, but love Cadbury milk chocolate bars, anything minty and a good cheese cake…oh the list could go on and on…there are so many things. I have a huge sweet tooth!

    kristi mcdaniel says:

    I’m not really sure what my guilty pleasure is for always. Right now, I love the DQ Waffle Crisp Blizzards. Any other time, I absolutely cannot resist a dessert with cream cheese in it.

    Emiline says:

    Wow! Geeze, those are some pretty good prizes. Thanks for doing this.

    It’s really hard to pick a favorite sweet of mine.

    I think my favorite would be, a brownie topped with hot fudge, vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and toasted pecans.

    I think my biggest summer-time sweet weakness would have to be smores! Mmmm, melted chocolate and gooey marshmallows…what could be better?

    Fly Baby in OKC says:

    I don’t eat them too often…but an occassional Peanut Butter Hot Fudge and Banana Sundae is awesome, salty and sweet…and healthy, too with the fresh fruit, right? :o) Maybe I should get them more often…

  35. 35
    Suzanne says:

    Such fun! My guilty pleasure is MMs — so simple and I can pop them in my mouth when the kids aren’t looking. Decadent goodness and easy to palm!

    Chocolate and carmel over vanilla Ice cream

  37. 37
    Julie says:

    Mmmmmm… I could eat an entire pan of brownies with white chocolate chips. But I definitely have a special place in my heart for chocolate chip cookies. Who doesn’t? And of course any sort of brownie fudge ice cream is usually stocked in the freezer for a late night chocolate craving… like right now!

    hazeyjane08 says:

    I can not resist Ben and Jerry’s Chubby Hubby ice cream or See’s candy Scotch Kiss.

    Pamela S says:

    Hi I hate to say this but my weakness is candy corn!! I “buy it for my grandchildren” because they like it,but half of the time they never get it. I also cannot resist choc chip cookies or pecan tassies.

    Krissy says:

    Jenny, I’m smiling from ear to ear because this is the funnest idea. Thanks! My sweet-tooth weakness is creamy homemade caramels. Oh my heck I made some for Christmas 2 years ago and practically gained double my body weight because I couldn’t keep my hands out of them, my intentions were to share with ALL my neighbors on gift plates but only a select few were able to taste them because there weren’t many left to share. SOOOOOO my weakness!!! 😀

    A Wendy’s Frosty…I just can’t get enough. Love your blog!

    Kevin and Katrina says:

    It’s gotta be something chocolate for me! I love that darn Levain Bakery Chocolate Chip Cookie, think about it often (just tasted it for the first time in April–so good–all the copy cats are good, but there’s still just something about the fresh Levain ones!) Also LOVE a good Molten Lava Cake and cookie dough ice cream is da bomb!

  43. 43
    K2cole says:

    Great Idea – I love to try your recipes they are less scary somehow!! My favorite are homemade bon-bons – made with oreos (something else I can’t resist) cream cheese and chocolate!! Use mint oreos and they are even better!!

    No Scrappin Mess says:

    I love anything chocolate or with sugar in it.

    I found your blog about a month ago and just LOVE it!

    My favorite guilty pleasure is Starbucks Mudslide Ice Cream. My hubby & I jokingly call it ‘the better than se* ice cream’

  46. 46
    Candee & Weston says:

    I really can’t resist your pictures of all your sweets. It makes me want to make them all, but I hurry and look at another blog before the temptation gets any worse.

    Thanks for sharing your talent and blog with us up here in Idaho. I heard of your blog from word of mouth. Good luck with all your contests you enter.

    My lifelong favorite craving has only been cured at Baskin Robins. They have a flavor called Daquiri Ice. Yummy! It is tart, sweet, and refreshing all in one bite! I have yet to find a comparable flavor elsewhere. So, for 35 years now, I have treated to Baskin Robins. However, they did recently alter the recipe. 🙁 I don’t understand why they don’t just make a seperate flavor. So, my first love is not what it once was, but is still on my list!

    Angie says:

    I’m so excited to enter this contest! I have to tell you … my husband loves your recipes and he is a very tough cookie to crack! 🙂

    My biggest weakness (I have a horrible sweet tooth as well) is chocolate peanut butter ice cream! So good! I need to see about making a copy cat recipe of this at home.

    Thank you Jenny!

    Kade & Kendal's Mom says:

    Anything with carmel. (That would be chocolates, brownies, Milk Duds, ice cream…you name it!) YUM!
    Love your website!

    The Forrester Family says:

    I can never pass up a soft – only soft – cookie. I’m a fanatic for a soft baked cookie. Hard and crumbly, no thank you. Moist and soft – you know the kind – Mmmmmm. Boy all this talk about cookies…makes me want a tall glass of milk to go with them.
