It’s finalllllly here. I told you all I would wait until July 23rd to post any of my Olympic ideas. I think I did pretty well – unless you are a Club CandiQuik member, then you saw a sneak peak of a few ideas. But today you get the directions and recipes to all 20 sweet ideas!
Can you tell, I have been pretty excited about this Olympic Party?! Even more so once I started seeing the many cool, unique, sweet, and delicious ideas that rolled in. You are all such talented bloggers and bakers.
FYI: The London Summer Olympics begins Friday, July 27, and ends Sunday, August 12, 2012. Are you having an Olympic-themed party? I think I’ll have one, even if all it entails is myself eating all these sugary treats while watching swimming, gymnastics, and track & field.
Let’s get the party started.
Here they are again, compiled into one giant pin-able collage!

Why do I do this to myself? I eat completely weird combinations of food that should not be seen together!!!
I promise – I know how to cook, but I’m notoriously known for eating strange off-the-wall dinners. I’m busy. I’m not married yet. I do not have kids yet. I’m hungry. Therefore, it happens. Plus, I’m only harming myself when I do this…
Example 1: Monday’s dinner consisted of buffalo chicken and a chocolate banana protein shake. WTH?!
Example 2: Wednesday I had a snack that consisted of a vanilla latte and jalopeno cheddar chex mix. GAG. It seemed like a good idea when I saw the chex mix, then I saw the latte, and ended up with both. Let’s just say these things do not belong together and should not be consumed within the same hour of eachother.
There’s just something about spicy foods when combined with sweet milky drinks that DOES NOT go together.
I know, your glad I told you this. What would you have done without me?!
On another note – cake, frosting, and chocolate and/or vanilla candiquik DO go together. March and Basketball DO go together. I’m on a roll.

So…a lot of football games have been on lately. Really “important” games.
Of course neither the Broncos or the (ahem) Vikings are playing anymore.
So then, naturally, I was rooting for San Francisco. Why?! Because I like California.
And this is how I pick who to cheer for. Silly, I know. But now we’re down to Giants and Patriots…what to do, what to do? Think I’ll just cheer for the opposite team the bf is cheering for.
Then while the game is going on I’ll usually find something yummy to make, because football games are long. Really long.
Should’ve made something that took longer….
But it all worked out, because then I went on Pinterest.
Puppy Chow, Reindeer Food, Chocolate Peanut Butter Chex Mix, Chex Lemon Buddies, or whatever you usually call it.
I have a twist on this mix today. It might sound weird. You may be skeptical. But really, it’s just as addicting as the original.
And there’s a secret ingredient involved that you would probably guess at first bite.

Things I learned this week that I should’ve already known after my twenty-something years of life:
Do not go running with someone that plays soccer, on a team. Or better yet, anyone that plays soccer regularly.
They can run, I…well, jog. Or you might even call it walking-incredibly-fast-where-you-kinda-have-to-jog, so you don’t trip.
Lastly, do not go running with someone who averages like 25 MPH (when you
run jog 5.1 m.p.h.)…
Ohh, last tip (promise): wait longer than 5 minutes to go running after you eat these…
Thinking back on it -
I’m fairly certain it was these guys fault –>
