SHREDible arrangements

'Tis the season! Is anyone else already getting into the Christmas spirit? Hot cocoa, Christmas music, decorations? Fess up! ;) Well, I was ready for Christmas a few months ago, so you can't ever be too early in my book! haha As a matter of fact, a component of my breakfast the other day reminded me of this fabulous holiday...

Luna Chocolate Peppermint Stick MMM Baby! This bar tastes like a cross between a soft, yet firm chocolate cookie and a rice crispy treat. Take that hybrid and top it with a thin icing glaze and some of those red crystal sprinkles and you have this ravishing creation that you see below.
After one bite, I thought...
A. Yowzers... this is delicious and I don't usually like minty chocolate stuff (this is not minty...it's Christmas-y and you will like it. Trust me! hah)
B. Why am I eating this for breakfast!? It turned on my sweet tooth...which can't be turned off! ;)
So enough of that...let's dive into the first part of my post's title...The Shred. That is right folks. I may be a few months behind some of you other bloggers, but my roommate and I finally bought Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred Workout DVD and knocked out Day 1 last night.
Now, what better way to end your workout than with some CHOCOLATE COVERED FRUIT! Say what?! Just for becoming a fan of edible arrangements on facebook, I got a free box of 6 yummmmay creations. You had to be one of their first 100,000 fans (and I almost didn't make the cut! eeeek!...If I had found out about it earlier, I could have filled you guys in on this schweet promo!).
Ahhh...which to try first!??
Crunchy chocolate apple? Hmm...maybe next time.
The famous chocolate covered strawberry?
No, I'm going to go with this little guy! (which I originally thought was a marshmallow...phaha! This is not a fondue shop, Emily!)
MMMM! If that doesn't make you swoooon, I don't know what will!
Time for another round of Jillian, laundry, a shower, studying and perhaps a trip to Keva Juice. Peace Dudettes!

  20. I see lots of people doing the 30 day shred too. I may have to look into that for when it rains here this winter and I don't want to leave my house. I have a wii fit for that already, but this sounds like fun too. I love edible arrangements so how cool that you got some samples.
