I saw this recipe at my nail salon this morning in a Family Circle Magazine. VOILA! It's also on the website! The magazine indicated that it's actually a Hershey's recipe.

These are a major hit in our family since the first time my daughter made them. We have substituted Splenda sugar and brown sugar which has brought the calories and sugar content down considerably and everyone thinks they taste so much better with the substitutes.
