2nd Birthday! Best of the Best Desserts 2012 {Products and Places}

Though many people talk about the “Terrible Twos” I’ve gotta say our second year rocked and kick some sugary-butt along the way.  No kicky-screamy-tantrums for us, just a bunch of big sugary smiles because of all the sweets we got our hands on.  It’s our second birthday, and with that comes CAKE (who’s baking??) and a big celebration.  I’m excited about both, considering I am a buttercream fanatic and I love giving prezzies to my friends.  Yes, there is a HUGE giveaway coming to coincide with our list of favorites.  Join the #SugarLocoParty and enter the giveaway!2012 best of the best desserts

Our contributors were so busy this year eating, eating, and eating and these are extraordinary, we know it because we’ve been telling everyone about them, dreaming of, and craving more.  So here it is… “The List” of all lists.  The list you need to add to your bucket list of “Must Eats”. Why?  Well, because we said so.  #duh

    I need to try that Mike’s hard Chocolate thing. If only it didn’t conflict with my goals to drink less. I need to find a loophole.

    The from-scratch Ding Dong caught my eye when you posted it at Instagram, Jenny. Good lord, it looks amazing.

    The See’s Lollipops are intriguing and definitely a step-up from my usual lollipop, which are Dum Dums I swipe at the kids’ doctor’s office.

    My kids are so excited to be living down the road from a See’s Candy store now. Grandma would bring them those Lollypops every time she went out of town. Now they want to send the Lollypops to grandma!
