Do you guys remember high school well? I’ve been reminiscing for the past few days about my high school years. That may be because I have my 10 year high school reunion this weekend. Oh my. Time has gone by so fast. In those last 10 year I’ve managed to get married, have 4 children and buy our first home. Might not sound like much but it feels like a lot.
Our lives are pretty quiet, I think back and see what some of my classmates have done with their lives and am so happy at what they have all be able to accomplish. Some I have stayed in contact with, some I haven’t seen or spoken to since high school. But I can say that I am excited and a little nervous to see them all again. Of course this girl is tasked with bringing the desserts! Obviously! I’m a sugar addict.
Can you believe that me being a dessert/baking addict is a new development? I honestly hated baking up until a few years ago. I was a seriously cook, but you couldn’t get me to bake to save my life. I think it played in part to that if you screw up a recipe while baking, its hard to save. While if you screw up a recipe while cooking it seems like there is an easy flavor fix. Who knows, but all I know is that I’m addicted to baking and sweets now.
I seen these bad boys over at Kraft and I knew from the moment I laid eyes on them that they were going to be in my stomach soon. Caramel, pretzels, sugar cookies and chocolate. This has all the components of a good time in one bite. Has the perfect balance of chewy and crunchy all in one. These are going to keep being on my dessert rotation that is for sure.
