Mel Mellis Sweet Treats {review & giveaway}






Mel Mellis n. [honey; sweetness , pleasantness].

I really looked forward to receiving my brownies-- what could be better than the combination of dark dutch chocolate, cheesecake and raspberry swirl? Nothing. And the brownies didn't disappoint!

  92. As an extra giving back entry: Last month I donated 6 preemie baby outfits to an organization that gives encouragement and clothes to parents of premature babies. The organization was started by a mother who lost her own premature baby and wanted to help other parents. Hope this counts as a "giving back" opportunity!
