  • Great quality with bendable figurines for kids and adults to pose and play with!
  • Wonderful gift to give children to help them express what they are feeling!
  • Joy has been Riley's lead emotion since day one. She sees life's challenges as hiccups on the way to something great.
  • Anger tries to keep his cool, but it's difficult when there's so much injustice in the world.
  • Fear does his best to protect Riley and keep her safe. There are very few things that he has not found to be dangerous.
  • Disgust has always been proud of her refined tastes. After all, her job is to keep Riley from being poisoned, physically or socially.
  • Sadness has always been a "glass half-empty" kind of emotion. It's hard to stay positive when she's seen ice cream scoops fall to the ground for no good reason.

Margaret's Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie

4 large eggs

1 cup light corn syrup

6 tablespoons melted butter

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

3 tablespoons bourbon

1 tablespoon flour

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 cup pecans

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (or dark chocolate if you prefer)

Preheat your oven at 350 degrees. Use your favorite pie crust recipe, line a 9 inch deep dish pie plate with the crust and refrigerate. Whisk together the first eight ingredients. Then fold in the pecans and chocolate chips. Pour into pie crust. Bake for 55 minutes or until set (I often let it go to an hour). Best baked on a middle or lower rack in the oven. Allow to cool on a wire rack. Best served with Chantilly cream. Enjoy!
