Last Thursday I received a note in Carter's school bag which informed me that they were having a "beach" themed birthday party for all the summer birthdays and of course asked if I could bring in a birthday treat for the class since Carter is included in the summer birthday group.
I asked Carter what he wanted me to make for his special treat and after pondering it for a moment he looked up at me with a twinkle in his eye and said, "those yummy m&m cookies that you make". It has been about 3 months since I made the first batch and the boys still remember them. I think partially because they instinctively know that I don't try to "healthify" them like I do with our other sweet treats. I make them exactly the way the recipe states and they are STUPENDOUS!
