I have had a week…a week that I am going to be happy to see gone.
With this yucky week I learned a few life lessons:
#1 If it looks crazy and talks crazy..well, it’s probably crazy.
#2 The Rolo McFlurry is the perfect ice cream dessert.
#3 Never underestimate power in numbers.
And finally…the most important lesson I learned…
It’s a biggie so listen up…
Never EVER pose in a picture with you chin resting on your fist.
Pause and let that sink in.
Chins and fists should never meet unless you are Rocky Balboa trying to down Ivan Drago.
I see people posing like this on a fairly regular basis and I can’t help but wonder why they are doing it…
Like maybe their head is so heavy that they have to hold it up with their fist?
Or thy are so bored with someone trying to take their picture (ho-hum) that they need to rest their busy chin.?
Or maybe they just ate a bunch of beef jerky and their chin is tired from all the chewing?
Either way I don’t trust it…NOT AT ALL.
I was told by a friend recently that sometimes people are asked to “chin rest” to disguise a double chin.
Let’s be frank…your fist is hiding nothing.
It doesn’t really make you look smarter, or thinner or more thoughtful…
What it does is give you a one way ticket to Tool-ville.
My kids do a good fist/chin impression. It has become a running joke in our house.
Don’t they look smart?
While we are on the subject…there are a few poses that rank up there with the fist/chin…most frequently seen as facebook profile pics.
How about the ghetto face, usually accompanied by a gang symbol or a peace sign?
Or the sideways face, ala Paris Hilton?
What about the creepy gaze?
Or the open mouthed smile?
The list really goes on and on…and I KNOW you all are going to comment and remind me of some other horrendous poses. I know this because you are all cool and would never, EVER pose for an open mouthed, sideways ghetto faced, creepy gazed, fist/chin picture.
So now that I have gotten that off my chin (hehe) let’s move on to treats.
Made with Bugles.
Start with your bag of Bugles.
Mix some peanut butter and powdered sugar together…
Give it a splash of milk and mix it up…
Fill a piping bag or a ziplock with the edge snipped off with the sweetened peanut butter.
And then squirt it in to your Bugles.
Repeat over and over…
Then melt some chocolate.
I used Dove Milk Chocolate because it is delicious.
And I dipped ’em.
And then I froze them.
And then I ate them up, one at a time 🙂Print
Chocolate and Peanut Butter Bugles
- 1 (7.5 oz) bag of Bugles
- 2 (9.5 oz) bags of Dove Milk Chocolates..use whatever chocolate you most prefer
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2+ Tbsp of milk
- In a large bowl combine your peanut butter and powdered sugar. Add milk 1 Tbsp at a time until it’s smooth. (I used 2 Tbsp)
- Beat until smooth.
- Using a piping bag or a ziplock with the edge snipped off pipe the peanut butter into the Bugle.
- Melt your chocolate in the microwave for 1 minute on 50% power, stir and repeat for 15 seconds until melted.
- Dip the peanut butter end of the Bugle into the melted chocolate and set on a wax paper lined baking sheet.
- When all are dipped put in freezer until set and ready to eat.
I used Milk Chocolate for these, but that doesn’t set up hard, so if you prefer you can use candy melting disks or semi sweet chocolate. Also I like to eat these frozen, but you certainly don’t have to. These are best if eaten the same day you make them.

This is really quite ingenious! Your boys are adorable!
I feel so sad inside for all of that have been dealing with THAT ISSUE. I’m so glad you’re back. And I’m so excited to make this. Especially since, randomly, in Korea they sell Bugles!! But, they don’t really call them that. They call them something else that I can’t really say. But that’s not important. The important thing is that you are here sharing these delicious recipes that I am going to wish I had never seen when I gain a jillion pounds at 2 in the morning.
Oh wow…a yummy and funny blog post!!! I love that combination of yum and fun. That treat looks absolutely delish and easy that I hope to try this this upcoming weekend! I don’t know if you addressed this, but I am sooo dumb when it comes to cooking sometimes. How and at what temp do you melt the Dove chocolate. I have always been afraid to melt regular milk chocolate candy…I am afraid I will burn it. I always use that waxy yet still delish almond bark chocolate and slowly melt it down in the microwave a minute at a time. If you could please let me know about the melting Dove, I would be so grateful. Dove is my fave, as well. Thanks!!!!
Also, I had to comment on annoying poses..The FB pose that annoys me the most is the one where people are taking a photo of themselves while posing in the mirror…or those shirtless guys flexing in front of the mirror…as though taking a picture of themselves looking at themselves in the mirror is supposed to impress us!
Hi Angie..I included in the recipe how I melted the chocolates….I just put them in a microwave safe bowl on 50% power for 1 minute. I stirred them and then repeated the process in 15 second increments until they were melted. Hope this helps!
first, am SO HAPPY YOU’RE BAACCKKKKKK!!!! second, i have taken more hand/chin pics than i care to admit and third i am a bugle-holic to the point that i only allow myself to buy them on vacation and just so we’re clear . . . said bugles would never make it getting filled as i’d probably just squeeze that peanut butter stuff straight from the bag into my mouth . . . there’s no tellin’ what i’d do about the whole chocolate issue . . . sigh . . . i need rehab . . . where’s Dr. Drew?
What a fun, yummy idea!
So I am in charge of giving the teachers a monthly treat to tell them thanks all year long on how they are doing with my kids….and I am going to have to make these for them…they will be simple to the point & with a quick bag & tag they will look amazing! Thank you soo soo much for all the yummy stuff you make!
Bugles bring back awesome childhood memories and this recipe looks amazing. salty..sweet…a perfect combo!
I love Bugles. I can barely allow myself to even fathom how incredibly fabulous those little bites of heaven must taste.
I had to wipe my mouth (drool) after looking at these fantastic treats. Labor Day weekend will certainly be better with these…if I can wait a week. Thanks for such a great idea.
is the most original idea I’ve seen. Sooo good!
