Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #209

Messy Messy Fail - A few weeks ago, for Valentine's Day, the kids and I were making our chocolate Valentine buttons when I realized I had more pretzels & candy pieces than chocolate kisses.  I did happen to have some left over from another baking adventure in my cupboard, so I broke them out and placed them on the pretzels as per directions.  So apparently the chocolate was so old that it would not melt nicely and we were left with a bit of a messy messy mess.  See picture of crumbling chocolate below.  

Tidy Victory - These 12 buttons were gross but the other 68 turned out just fine!
