Toblerone Cookies to help finish a busy week

This week has been quite hectic.. so busy in fact that I haven't had time to do any 'fun' stuff.  Next week will be busy too, but I promise to post a bit more than I did last week.

I am happy to report that I did complete all of my scheduled workout that I posted last Sunday.  Today`s run almost didn`t happen.  We had crazy winds and it was bitterly cold this morning.  I almost talked myself out of running and my husband said to me as I headed out this morning `You`re crazy`. 

But as I head down the road, I was met by flashing red lights and a fire truck blocking the road.  The high winds had blown down hydro lines and the road I needed to drive down to meet my running group was closed.  I turned around and headed home.  I still needed my run, so I packed my girls up and headed to my parents.

I`m not sure if I ran at my goal pace, but I did run 12k and my kids were entertained.  All was well in my world.  Now for the cookies...

I showed a picture of these a few weeks ago and am finally getting around to posting them.  To quote a well know TV cooking host... Yum-o!
