Summer is in full force here.
90* plus some!!!
With all this sun and heat that means
lots of swimming and pool therapy!!!!
So far we have been to the pool twice
and have some light redness and freckles
to prove it!
Ya gotta love sitting at the pool and
just looking around at the people and
suits that they choose to wear.
I mean seriously…
do some of these people not look in the mirror
when they buy a swim suit?
Some are like train wrecks…
you just can’t look away!!!
But who wants that kind of image
burned in their brain, so let’s talk sweets!
This one might haunt you until you make it.
When I started thinking about it,
I had to make it RIGHT AWAY!!!
Now because I am kind of a baking junkie…
I seem to always have most of the things I need
in one of my cupboards when inspiration strikes.
LOL! You never know
when a baking emergency might come up!

Press down gently. You can use wax paper or spray your hands with nonstick spray. Add the remaining candies to the top. Press them in gently, so that they stick.
