You Mocha Me Crazy!

Yesterday I did some exploring around town.

I found the cutest little shop selling antiques, crafts, and other fun thrifty items.

One of those items…handmade, mocha latte…SOAP??

I picked it up.

I took a whiff.

It smelled like pure Heaven.

I drooled.

I sat it down and walked away.

I came back.

I took another whiff…

Then, before I tried to take a bite of a BAR OF SOAP…
I turned around, headed for the door, raced home and made these:

And I about dropped my fork after my first taste.

Seriously guys, I think I’ve outdone myself!

Since I had SO much success with my Tiramisu Protein Pancakes, I based this recipe off of that one, but I just COULDN’T RESIST mixing it up a bit…

So I added a layer of pumpkin “cream”

You know, ’cause I’m still working on that natural October glow! 😉
