Back at the beginning of the pumpkin season, I was a little, wee, tiny bit upset when Target advertised Pumpkin Spice M&M's were at the store and I went all the way there and found that they hadn't got their stock of them yet.
I may have made the kids go to every possible spot they could have been in the store. I may have made my preschooler wait ten minutes while I had the stock lady look them up then call the stockroom guys to see if they had them. I may have thrown a teeny tiny tantrum, pouted and complained when they didn't have them. I may have mumbled something about false advertising. I may have even called Target everyday until they had them in stock and then grabbed three bags when they finally did. And maybe I yelled for joy when I found they were buy two get one free plus a cartwheel plus a manufacturer coupon plus a store coupon combined made them all $1.50 for three bags. I'm a sucker for a deal.
And absolutely none of those bags of Pumpkin Spice M&M's exists now.
That's because they went to good use. Some cookies. A small handful after a run. Neighbor kids that come over starving. Soccer treats. And this amazing Pumpkin Spice M&M cake recipe.
