Do NOT make puppy chow while pregnant! I think that my self-control when it comes to food has gone out the window...
Yesterday, I went to the store to get the ingredients that I needed to make some puppy chow and chocolate covered pretzel rods for James' friends who have been so gracious to occasionally give him a ride home from school so he doesn't have to wait for the bus!
Here's what I started with:
Aren't the little Santa bags festive? I will say there are only limited choices of these bags at Target:) Then I had to do step one: wash the dishes in the sink. BOO. I promise that i don't leave piles of dishes all the time, it's just that I feel like I am constantly washing them and they somehow still appear! I wash them every morning from breakfast and coffee, after lunch, in the afternoon if I do any baking or cooking, after dinner, etc. My poor hands...the no dishwasher thing gets so old.
Then I started the puppy chow process:)
What could be better than chocolate, peanut butter and butter? hahaha. I sort of skipped taking pictures as I got into what I was doing, so here is the finished puppy chow.
And here's what everything looked like when I wrapped it all up!
We delivered the treats last night and I think they were a hit. Oh, i made a little extra for us to munch on too because James loves this stuff and well, so does James Thomas:)
