Peanut Butter Chocolate Pretzel Bars! + Having Fun with Food

Hi my Lovelies! How are you this weekend? I dreamed up these Peanut Butter Chocolate Pretzel Bars when I was walking around in my local supermarket store and walked by a bag of pretzels. I picked up the bag and couldn’t shake of the image of these pretzels swimming in dark chocolate heaven. Yum. Did you ever play with food? Sometimes I like to take a break and have a random wander around the supermarket. Have any of you ever done that? Especially, the snack section. It takes me back to my childhood memories, consolidated in aluminum wrapped wagon wheels marshmallows in the middle of 2 chocolate biscuits, swimming goldfish crackers, oreos, shortbread animal biscuits with pink lime green frosting, Pocky sticks… I remember I used to drink hot chocolate using a chocolate hazelnut cylinder shaped wafer as a straw and being (sort of) disappointed when the wafer would dissolve into the hot chocolate.

It was all pink, and sparkly, and if my memory doesn’t fail me, I think it was a pack of Hello Kitty stickers.

3 steps to getting what you really really want

Tell me your deepest desires…. Have you ever wanted something to come into your life? Like really really bad? One of the most well thought out quotes I’ve heard was by Regina Thomashauer (a.k.a. Mama Gena), who is¬†founder of The School of Womanly Arts. She said in an interview with Marie Forleo*¬† that, ‘Desire is the connection to something greater than yourself.’ *Marie Forleo has a Youtube channel where she shares how to create a live that you love! Her videos are super helpful that is also funny to watch! When I heard that quote, it blew my mind away. Because that’s all that our desires are. It’s a feeling, a connection, to something that we want. Yet sometimes, we get into this overcomplicated relationship with our desires that we block ourselves from receiving it. Why we’re not getting what we want Have you ever said to yourself or perhaps in a conversation with your best buds, ‘I want to travel to a place that I’ve never been to before. Like to go to Paris, …
