Scored Rocks ~ Too Late!

A few weeks ago my mom went to Missouri with my brother and SIL to attend a birthday party for two of her three great-grandsons who live there. My niece and her husband, the boys' folks, made this cake and she posted about it HERE.

Mom raved about this cake, rightfully so because it is AMAZING! But what really amazed her were the rocks. She told me that she thought Amber had picked up rocks from the driveway because they looked so realistic. Finally she put one in her mouth and carefully bit it...OMG, IT WAS CHOCOLATE!

I told her that Dylan had bought some at the Pima Air Museum. Then, she told me that I have to bring her some chocolate rocks when Rich and I return to Illinois. Never one to ignore such a request, I called my niece to find out where she got them...WalMart...slam dunk, right? Not exactly. I searched every Wal-Mart in Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas, as well as many souvenir shops, before finally scoring them on our last day in San Antonio.  Here are the elusive chocolate rocks...

I gleefully e-mailed my niece about my success only to find out that her mom and dad had found them at the little WalMart store in our small town. And they had already given them to Mom! Foiled again...giggle. Maybe we'll just eat the ones I bought...naw.
