(Thanks to my sis Sally for this great recipe)


  1. Why have I not made this yet? My absolute favorite thing to eat ever. Gotta go with the Hershey kisses all the way!
    These are really, really good! Remember how you brought them for a snack at the park and we all wolfed them down in about 5 seconds! Oh ya.

  2. I made these last night. DELISH. I'm just finishing up the last of them. Hello.


  3. I'm positive these are the main culprit in my excessive weight gain the past few months!
