    I was so happy seeing your photo and found my favorite childhood snack! Now these are available in Costco (in my area) and always tempted to buy (but I won't – it comes in like 8-10 boxes and dangerous!). I love your cute ideas of using these choco mushrooms – I've never seen they are used like this and it shows how creative you are! 🙂
