Peanut Butter M&M Bark
Please welcome another very funny and talented blogger, Shelly of cookies and cups! When I got this crazy virtual cookie party idea in my head there were a few people that I thought of immediately. So when Shelly responded to my email and even acknowledged my existence I think I did a little dance in front of the computer screen. Sorry for the visual image. It wasn’t pretty. Let’s be real; I didn’t dance but I may have done a fist pump. Okay that sounds even worse. It was more like, “Oh cool” and then I replied with a polite and professional followup email. But inside I was dancing the Electric Slide.
Hello!!! Shelly from cookies and cups here. Hope you don’t mind that I’ve taken up residence over here for the day. Katrina very graciously invited me and I very graciously accepted. So let’s talk sugar, shall we? Being a dessert blogger is the best job ever. I get to bake, eat and take pictures. Sampling is necessary and important. And buying butter by the pound is completely justified. I can only imagine that the next best job would be an ice cream flavor inventor… or a make-up sampler. Is that a job? If it isn’t, it totally should be. I would be awesome at it.
The one thing, though about having my site, is that people are always expecting you to bring delicious treats wherever you go… If you show up to a party sans sugary dessert people get all disappointed and stuff. I guess it comes with the territory. So here’s the easiest, most yummy treat that you can whip up for any party in less than 5 minutes. It’s perfect for holiday gifting or just snacking at home.

Now *you* are doing a little dance, right? I saw that. If you don’t listen to another word I say ever please listen to me when I say that you must check out her Reese’s Stuffed Oreos.
