I want to try these (so cute)

What You Need

6oz.  BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate
25 JET-PUFFED Marshmallows, divided 
Suggested decorations: BAKER'S ANGEL FLAKE Coconut, food colorings, colored sugar, pretzel sticks, ring-shaped toasted whole grain oat cereal, decorating icing, chow mein noodles, PLANTERS Nuts, small candies

Make It

MELT chocolate as directed on package. Dip 20 marshmallows, 1 at a time, in chocolate, turning to evenly coat each marshmallow. Gently shake off excess chocolate. Place marshmallows, in single layer, on sheets of waxed paper. Reserve remaining melted chocolate for decorating. (NOTE: If decorating coated marshmallows with coconut hair, place 1/2 cup coconut in small resealable plastic bag. Add 2 drops each green and yellow food coloring; seal bag. Shake to evenly tint coconut. Arrange on tops of coated marshmallows. If desired, pinch coconut into a mohawk cut before placing on marshmallows.)
LET marshmallows stand at room temperature 2 hours or until chocolate is firm.
CUT each of the remaining marshmallows crosswise into 4 pieces with clean kitchen shears. Cut v-shaped notch out of each piece for the shoes. Dip cut-sides in colored sugar. Attach 1 notched marshmallow to bottom of each chocolate-covered marshmallow with a dab of the remaining melted chocolate.
DECORATE coated marshmallows with remaining decorations as desired. For bolts: Cut pretzels into 1/4-inch lengths. Insert 1 pretzel piece into each cereal ring; insert 2 pretzels into opposite side of each marshmallow, securing each with a dab of melted chocolate. For eyes, nose, scars and other hair styles: Decorate marshmallows with remaining ingredients as desired.

2 Jalapenos, Steamed Seeded and Diced
1/2 a Green Chile, Steamed Seeded and Diced
1 Garlic Clove Chopped

You can keep chopped if you like chunky salsa

missing the gym

So I have been going to the gym and it is nice noticing some changes...Well about a month and a half ago I had to go do some Soccer drills because I told both my boys I would coach there teams. One is U6 and the other is U8. So I must have rolled my ankle one of the days I have to go do drills....(I also got stung by a be the 2nd day of drills). So I kept going to the gym in the mean while not knowing anything was wrong with me ankle. Over the last month it started to swell and hurt. Me thinking it would be OK and just get better it didn't it got worse....So I took a few weeks off iced and wrapped my ankle and this morning was my first day back at the gym. I never thought I would say it but I missed it and it felt so good to be back today..I really never thought I would find the love that you hear about...Guess i did.
