Is everyone gearing up for back to school? I can’t believe summer is almost over! Although the benefit of not having kids and not being in school is that summer isn’t really over until the weather starts to get cold! So even though fall is my favorite season, I’m not quite ready to embrace it just yet. I saw Pumpkin Spice Lattes this morning at Starbucks – it just seems wrong when it is 90 degrees outside and I’m wearing a white dress!

But even though I’m not quite on board with fall, I can get totally get on board with back to school treats, like these Mini M&M cookies! These are the perfect treat to pack in your kid’s lunchbox for the first day of school.
