What makes you happy these days?
It’s Spring today, which makes me happy, even though it comes hand in hand with allergy season.
A good manicure makes me pretty happy especially if glitter polish is involved.
A clean house (if even for a moment) makes me exponentially happy.
The Bachelor has finally ended which makes me all sorts of happy, but a little sad at the same time. But The Bachelorette will be starting soon, so….happy again!
Easter’s almost here which makes me happy because that means I can unabashedly decorate the house in pastel colors and not feel like I live inside an episode of The Golden Girls.
And of course cookies make me happy.
And these Cookie Sticks make me even happier because I didn’t even have to use my mixer. Just a bowl and a spoon. Happy sigh.
Here’s what you do.
Mix your wet ingredients together first. Yes, sugar is a wet ingredient, don’t ask.
I found these yummies at the store last week…White Chocolate M&Ms.
Press the M&Ms (or chocolate chips) on top before you bake.
Here’s the before and after…
Let them cool completely before eating, if you can wait!
