It's finally here. Senior year of high school. Just 1 more year, two more semesters, six more classes, and 14 college applications to go and I'll be heading off to college. So weird to finally be doing all of this. It seems like your whole schooling career is just preparing for this: college applications. Ah, the stress. I've already started quite a few of them and gotten a good way through them but the essay's are just killing me! What do I write about?!! So tough. How do I want the admissions officers to see me? It's such a tough decision. Do I want to just be totally me, or do I want to be the student that they want to see? AAHHHHH. I'm going to go crazy with this.
So as I ponder my college essays and applications and get ready for my classes and mentally prepare myself for the SAT and ACT, I bake. Or in this case, I make myself some easy, delicious, fattening snacks that I can eat as I stress about my life.
These treats are everything you want in a treat. Sweet. Salty. Crunchy. Chewy. Nutty. Ab. So. Lute. Ly. Per. Fect. These things are
so good they make me separate words by syllables. They require three, count it, THREE ingredients.
Pretzels + Rolos + toasted pecans can't be bad. You'll have to try it out for yourself. They are heaven in your mouth.
Seriously, just give 'em a shot. I promise you won't be disappointed. Please, do yourself a favor, go make them. Or…you can write my college essay for me? Only if you want. HAA. Just kidddddinggg. But really guys – go make these.
