Chocolate No Bake Cookies

Did everyone have a good Easter? We had a good time with family, and enjoyed the nice weather. 
We filled the garden bed this weekend and I planted the first seeds outside. I have both sugar snap peas and spinach planted.

After researching lots of ideas around gardening, I decided to go forward with the square foot gardening method. I'm going to add a tab on the blog to show some of the latest gardening pictures, so that you can follow along in my adventure.

The one thing I love about holidays.. is there is usually candy involved. Leftover candy is the best because I can throw a few pieces into our lunches... Or I can grab a "power" piece before taking Ginny on a walk.

Sometimes you just get the urge to have a small sweet treat. I am a huge chocolate fan.... ok maybe its actually a chocolate addiction. Sometimes it just hits me that I need some super chocolatey.... hence the theme for this week is simply CHOCOLATE week.

These no bakes are super easy to make... and they are the perfect fix for any chocolate craving!
