I made popcorn coated in white chocolate in a clear bag with red/white/pink M&Ms. Catherine made heart-shaped brownies. It was a tie (and I voted for Catherine!).

Her husband told her not to come home if she didn’t win.I think they liked the Hot Corn Dip. Finishing her second bowl:This guy went on the hunt for another table’s leftovers:
