Muddy Buddies

IMG_2962 Me and my little buddy, Eli, made our newest addiction, again-Chocolate Muddy Buddies. Mmmm, they are good. I made some for a Young Women's activity a week ago, and Eli was so bummed that he only got a little bit of it (I was too actually). Of course the youth devoured it so there were no leftovers for Eli and I to munch on later. The next day Eli asked if we could make more. I was craving it too, so of course I said yes. Then that got eaten faster than it should have too.  So, yesterday Eli wanted more (and again I did too), so when he asked if we could make more, what could I do but make my little buddy happy, and so we made more.

Right now it is seriously my favorite treat (move over mini charleston chews).  Yes, I realize they do nothing for the baby fat that I complain about and am "trying" to lose, but by golly sometimes you just have to indulge. Right?

Not to mention I am having some good bonding time with my little buddy. Yeah, that's the real reason I keep making them. :)IMG_2960

Didn't you know? When you make treats for your children, there are no calories. It's a gift to good mothers.

First of all, I think it's hilarious that you have "Eli's Coming" playing every time I visit the blog. It takes me right back to doing "Sweatin' to the Oldies" with my mom in our living room when I was a kid. Ha!
And secondly, I wondered who brought the Muddy Buddies to the activity. The kids were practically fighting over it. Everyone loves Muddy Buddies! Yum!
