Snacks of Desperation

It’s somewhere between 1 and 4 hours after dinner. I am sitting at the counter, writing. Minding my own business. And then it happens. Absolutely no warning (except for the fact that it happens every night).

I’m starving, I know I haven’t eaten in days hours, I am so desperate! I need chocolate, or something. Something sweet, preferably. DAMN! I ate all of the sweet things so there wouldn’t be anymore sweet things for me to eat. WHAT WAS I THINKING????

I will find something. There must be something in these cabinets somewhere. Maybe buried in the fridge. Oh wait!!! Didn’t I make some gooey chocolate centers for lava cakes that never actually got made so I stuck them in the back of the freezer like a year three years ago?

I will definitely not make it through the night if I don’t eat SOMETHING YUMMY. I also might have to shoot someone. So I am guessing that it would be in EVERYONE’S best interest for me to get something yummy in me NOW!

Desperately Craving Sweets Leads to Questionable Choices 



Thank you so much for your time, and please – snack wisely.


This has been a Finish the sentence Friday hosted by the lovely bloggers listed below. The sentence was: I wasn’t really myself when…..

  1. Sorry about the above. I think you completely turned me off sweets with this post. Not one of them turns me on.

    I think you should make my mother’s cheesecake to get back on track.

  2. And now all I want to do it whip-its with Redi-Whip. And guess what, we don’t have any, but we do have Friendly’s Ice Cream in the freezer and that just may do, lol!! Seriously loved this and thank you for linking up with us!! 🙂

    • I used to do that all the time Sarah! Thank goodness Isaiah is allergic to peanuts, and sunbutter is not as satisfying!

  3. OMG I eat peanut butter at 2am all the time. Because Tucker is allergic to peanut butter and it’s hidden on the top top top shelf. and I don’t want to kiss him with it and so I have to wait. And. I love the photo. And you.

  4. OMG Jen. This is so me. I bought a huge bag of chocolate chips at Costco a long time ago which means I always have all the ingredients for chocolate chip cookies. Such a bad idea.

    Now I’m going to spend the rest of the night trying not to make chocolate chip cookies. 🙂

  5. Oh I have SOOOOO been there! I crave salt more than sugar usually though so you can only imagine what happens next…

    Black beans out of the can topped with hot sauce (that actually sounds good, not gross like in my head!)

    Canned water chestnuts dipped in soy sauce

    Last weeks leftover white rice (that came with that take out order) nuked till its dead ( to kill it’s “oldness”) and topped with ketchup (I was outta salsa, soy, and dressing)

    MMmmm… I’m hungry right now! THANKS A LOT!

  6. I do it, too, but mine are always salty cravings…in fact, gonna have to go get some saltines with bologna and shredded cheese on top, all lightly microwaved. Yuuuummmmmm…:)

    • I am so amazed about all of the Salty people Norine! I can’t believe it, but it looks 50/50! 50 normal people for every 50 nutjobs.

  7. HA! We have a winner! Reddi Whip! omg Jen, this cracked me up so much. I have the ubiquitous year old cake frosting in the cupboard too – and the half eaten one in the fridge from whenever, just in case I want to…bake something?? My cabinets are a food museum. I find stuff in there from God knows when. Actually…the hotdog bun idea doesn’t sound too bad in a pinch. But I’ll tell ya what – I try to always always have the makings for s’mores in the cupboard in case of a 911.

    • My son is a bloodhound for hershey bars Linda! It doesn’t matter where I hide them, he’ll find them, eat them and then tell me days later so he won’t get in trouble!

  8. OMG….love this! I am always craving chocolate and cheese…and it’s the worst thing for me…oh boy. my favorite thing is chocolate morsels, peanut butter, almond milk, marshmallows microwaved in a bowl.

  9. Ha! Oh those late night sweets cravings! I showed my kids the Redi-Whip straight in the mouth thing not all that long ago. Totally blew their minds! (By the way, they now make frosting in those squirty cans. They say it’s for cupcake decorating, but I think it’s really for late night cravings!)

  10. Priceless! Although, I’ve NEVER done any of that (cough, cough)! I would say that the picture was the cherry on top, but, clearly, it was the whipped topping! Super hilarious post, Jen!

  11. Yeah, I am guilty of taking from my daughter’s reward stash of special treats. I just look at her and say, “Don’t you remember eating the Fun Dip? You said it was so yummy!”

  12. You should have a warning on the top of this post… will make you hungry if reading close to any mealtime. It’s almost lunch and now instead of having something considered lunchworthy… I really want to dallop a big piece of heaven in my mouth from the reddi whip can I have in my fridge!
