Recipe by Alan in SW Florida

This brings back wonderful childhood memories of my grandmother. My cousins, brothers, and I would make these in her kitchen, usually making a mess. She didn't care as long as we were laughing and having fun. If you added a squirt of chocolate syrup, you had a "Black Cow with a Sling of Mud." Boy, those were the days and it sure didn't take much to make us happy!!
