Cake Pops Chocolate MintLast week I headed to Smart & Final {one of my favorites stores} to pick up some supplies {including some cake pops supplies} for a few recipes I have planned. While I was there I checked out the Ambiance coffee selection. They are currently having a promotion that if you make the switch to Ambiance coffee then enter the code from the bottom of your receipt from the purchase here you will be entered to win some really great prizes including a DeLonghi Cafe Nero Coffee/Espresso Maker {Hello! what a great prize!} as well as gift cards. I am always up for a great contest so I picked up a bag of the Ambiance to take home to try. Then finished up gathering all my supplies for my cake pops recipe {and other items on my list} you can see everything I purchased on my shopping adventure on my google+ page.
