Chocolate Key Lime Treat, Mr. Bunches Style

If any of you read Friday’s post, you know that we made an offer on a house.  I wish I had some exciting news to insert here, but I don’t–basically, we’ve heard nothing.  Nada.  Zilch.  Zonk (if you will).  Our real estate agent is guessing that our offer was so low, that they aren’t even going to dignify it with a response.  And of course, for those of you who know us, things like that tend to not rub us the right way.  My gut reaction?  Walk away in a huff.  (And believe me, I’m huffing right now.)  But, maybe that’s being hasty?  Maybe this is our diamond dream house in the rough?  Any thoughts?  I did get a chance to talk to some people from the Buffalo area, and apparently a french drain, aka drain tiles, in the basement isn’t that big of a deal.  As long as it’s hooked up to a sump pump, then there’s no problem.  But now, I’m kind of looking at this house like it has an attitude problem (yes, sometimes I project supposed human vibes onto inanimate objects).  Eurgh.  Not sure what to do now . . . if you have any advice, feel free to drop it off in the comments below . . .

But, to take our your mind off of things, here’s another recipe for ya’, this one courtesy of Mr. Bunches himself (don’t say I didn’t warn  you 😉 ):

Chocolate Key Lime Treat (yep–he even named it!)

You’ll need:

  • Chocolate Frozen Yogurt (or Ice Cream if you want to live dangerously)
  • Key Lime Frozen Yogurt
  • Pretzels
  • Peanut M&Ms
  • Ice Cream Scoop & a little elbow grease

First, crush some pretzels in a bowl:

Then, portion yourself some Peanut M&Ms (the Mr. likes to make sure that there’s a nice mix of colors at this point):

Lots of color, right?

Of course, don’t forget to give your helper an amuse-bouche . . . (or else there can be foot-stomping, pouting, and just overall hysteria):

Helper Satisfied

Phew–crisis averted.  Moving on . . .

Fro Yo Model

Put one scoop of Key Lime Fro-Yo in your prepared pretzel and M&M mess, and roll it around to get it coated with sweet and salty goodness:

Then, do the same with a scoop of chocolate (or Chocolate Fudge Brownie as the case may be):

Double Scoop and Roll Time 

Now, make a bowl for your helper (I’m more of a straight-up chocolate girl, hence my sort-of-boring-looking sweet-treat in the back of this shot); and enjoy!

Fro Yo for Two!

Of course, when you’re done, don’t forget to lick the bowl!

Nothing will escape!

Like I said, I gave you fair warning.

  1. I would be pouty too. Perfectly normal reaction… because we’re… uhh… perfectly normal, right?? Wish I were closer so I could give better advice, but yes, I once had a conversation in my head with an overpriced piece of land. Hang in there! xo
