I know, there is alot of effort that goes into these but they are really worth it. Have a cup of coffee or a glass of milk handy when you eat them. They're fantastic!

I made these the other day and the guys in my house love them. They are a little sweet for me. It did take some time to put it together but it was easy to do. This dessert would be great to take to a potluck. Thanks for posting!!
