Say that one fast three times. Coconut Cocoa Crisps, Coconut Cocoa Crisps, Coconut Cocoa Crisps.
Ok, so it wasn’t that hard, but there sure are a lot of “C’s”.
For us girls in the child rearing years, PMS rolls around once a month and takes over us like a three headed monster. Sorry boys, we really have no control over our attitude, our complete beeotch-iness. We really do feel sorry for our terrorizing actions, our ear piercing yelling rages and our general ability to make the house a living hell for a week. I believe I can apologize for all women alike, right ladies?
You know what can tame the beast for at least a few moments? CHOCOLATE. Chocolate in any form.
That is how these Coconut Cocoa Crisps were born. I needed some PMS medicine. These work quite well.
