Okay, so it’s your turn to bring the snacks. Happens all the time. Maybe they’re for your kid’s class or hockey practice or maybe you need something for a bake sale. Of course you might just want to surprise your co-workers at the office – which is really sweet of you by the way. But whatever the reason, you still don’t want to spend all night making them.
