Want Some? You Know You Do...
...make your own...
1 1/2 cups melted chocolate chips, semi-sweet or milk
2 1/2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
50-60 mini jelly beans
Makes 15 to 18 nests
Mix melted chocolate and coconut. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto wax paper. Make an indentation in center of each nest with a spoon (OK, that's so not true; you can drop with the spoon, but you really have to shape with your fingers, and make an indentation with your thumb). Press 2 or 3 jelly beans into each. Chill till set. (If you want more than 1 batch, make them separately, because the chocolate can begin to harden while you're making all those nests.)
Put them in pretty Easter containers and give some of them away. Don't eat them all, that's not good for you.
Now, go and check out this Hot Hip-Hop Bunny action and then come back and I'll tell you why I like it so much. Go on. And click "back" to come back. (WAIT!!!! If you're at work, turn down the volume first. OK, now go.)
OK. First, I like it because it makes me smile and bounce. Second, did you see the Easter B's shoes? I have those same pink Chuck Taylors. Just like the green Chucks I had in 8th grade. Yes, I'm 40something. Yes, I wear them. You wanna make something of it? This happened last summer:
Ms. Snooty Snarklebutt (not her real name): Oh, look at your shoes. You must be really confident, to wear shoes like that.
Susie (big-smiling): Well, yes, Snarklebutt, I guess I am.
But that wasn't entirely true. Sometimes I'm really confident, but sometimes I'm not a bit. So even though it wasn't technically honest, I still thought it was a better response than the first one that came to mind, which was to push her down the stairs and say, "WTF is that supposed to mean?" So even though I sort of lied, I still sort of think it was the right thing to do, because we were at a children's function. At church.
