pretzels & chocolate

Look what I found yesterday! Actually, H found them, as we were standing in the checkout line at Target. She said, "Look Mom! Pretzel M&Ms!"

I had never heard those words uttered together in all my life, but it sounded like a perfect match. It sounded like these:
my chocolate peanut butter pretzel balls from way back in October.

Man, those are still the best things ever.

Looking at that picture makes me want to go make some.

Wait, where was I? Oh, right, the M&Ms. So the Pretzel M&Ms are like a mini version of my creation without the peanut butter. They're a little pretzel ball covered in chocolate and coated with candy shell.
Still yummy. Nowhere near as yummy as  my chocolate peanut butter pretzel balls, but then I didn't have to make them, so I'm not complaining. The only complaint I have is that there were a whopping 14 M&Ms in that 99cent package. Bah.

*By the way, I bought these M&Ms myself, on a whim, by no request of any candy companies.  I found something fun and wanted to share it with you. I have not been compensated by any means. But that doesn't mean I'm opposed to the idea. D'ya hear that, Mars? Want a blogging buddy?*

Great. Now I seriously need to go make some pretzel balls. And then I'm going to take my jiggly behind for a brisk walk. 20-mile walk. Yeah, that should do it.

Have a great weekend!
