The Best Bar

Vacation was a lot of fun but it sure is nice to be back home. Before I share those adventures with you, however, I need to update you on a little bar competition that my family had on Christmas Day.

There were a total of 12 entries, all of which were quite delicious. After each family member voted, the tallies indicated a three way tie between bars #2, #7, and #8.

Bar #2 was my no bake Twix bar. I could hardly believe I had made it into the running! (You can find the super easy recipe here.)

Bar #7 was my cousin Grace's strawberry shortcake bar. She won The Best Dip contest.

Bar #8 was my cousin Mollie's blueberry bar.

While the three of us waited anxiously for a revote, we posed for pictures with the crown.

After several excrutiating minutes, the winner was announced. IT WAS ME!! I WON!! Can you tell I was thrilled beyond belief?

I won't lie, I did get a little misty eyed as Grace crowned me the winner. It was just so unexpected, especially after my Thanksgiving Day bar failure! I can't wait to crown the winner of The Best Appetizer contest next Christmas. (Start sending your recipes my way.)

A big thanks to all of you who sent me bar recipes; I greatly appreciated your help and plan to try them all in the future. And a special thanks to Karen for providing me with the winning recipe!
