It's official. It's summer and HOT. And humid. I stepped outside yesterday morning to run at 5:30am and it was already 78*F. With 98% humidity. Fun, right?
|Triple fisting it at breakfast yesterday morning with a smoothie, iced coffee, and ice water.|

|That's a high dive. At least 10 ft.|
It also means no lines at the slide and diving board. You betcha I jumped off the high dive. Well, more like gingerly stepped off the edge and feared for my life, but it still counts.
What else does one do when it's super hot outside? Make cake pops, of course. Gotta find something to do inside in the cool air conditioning.
Ever since I've started making cake pops, I've envisioned a chocolate peanut butter flavor. My vision was confirmed when I found these peanut butter candy melts.
These cake pops are made up of chocolate cake mixed with chocolate frosting. (For more information on how to make them, go visit Bakerella. Better yet, buy her book!)
I then dipped them in the peanut butter candy coating, and covered some in chopped Reese's Pieces and some in chopped Reese's cups. Can you say sugar overload?
I'm nicknaming these the "Buckeye Pop." Appropriate, living in the Buckeye state, no?
