    I found one of your candy bar recipes on Pinterest and had to check it out. When your site popped up, and I read the first couple lines I was in SHOCK. I just couldn't believe it, we must be twins separated at birth!!!.I always thought no one REALLY understood me, and low and behold. You are my HERO!!!
    Seriously though, every time I would look for a certain recipe there would always be that one ingredient that would take away from the candy or dessert. So know I have someone I can ask for a certain, GOOD, recipe. Which leads me to my first question, do you have a recipe for a s'mores pie?
    Thanks for your time, and I look forward to going through all your recipes!!
