Raspberry HUGS Hot Chocolate Muddy Buddies

9 Feb


Oh wow. That is a mouth full but seriously they are good. So good that we polished them off and my husband was around the kitchen looking for them.


Say what! He does not go around the kitchen looking for sweets, normally. When I placed these in front of him yesterday he decided to try them. And he liked them! This is a great feat of mine. To get my husband to really like sweets. Because I am obsessed with sweets, I want him to be too.


Ok so back to these muddy buddies. I had some Raspberry HUGS left in my cabinet that I wanted to use up before Valentine’s Day. So I started searching the Internet and I found this recipe.


Well I decided to change it up just a tad bit and this is what we got! Something quick, easy and super tasty. This is great for something a little different to have around the house for Valentine’s!
