Today’s Recipe and Location: Tortilla Roll-Ups
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog
I figured out that there are 221 calories per serving, if 6 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

I have now made these goodies three times. First, I made them for myself and absolutely fell in love. Of course, I may have caused myself a problem because of the avocado in them, but I felt it was so wonderful that it was worth the risk. The second time I made them was for my wonderful niece Maddie’s summer party. I know the first one was a hit because I was there at the time. I told Maddie that they were a great lunch. When I was making Maddie’s I made a set for myself again. They are just flippin’ wonderful and a terrific summer food because of the fresh fruit. These are a summer must.

Mary Harling’s Chocolate Candy
One of the bonuses of being a teacher is that parents show their appreciation in many ways. During Teacher Appreciation Week, I received this recipe from Mary Harling. I can’t wait to make it because it looks rich, and I love all of the ingredients. Thanks a bunch, Mary!
2 (8 oz.) Hershey bars (or other milk chocolate)
1 pound of almond bark
18 ounces of peanuts
First, melt the chocolate and almond bark in a double boiler. Now, stir in the peanuts. After stirring together, drop the candy onto cookie sheets lined with wax paper. Now just refrigerate until firm.
Mary jotted a note that these freeze well, too.
