I saw this recipe and thought that it was simple and easy. Also that is was very low in fat and low in calories. These make great treats for children.

Great recipe! And it couldn't have come at a better time for me! I saw it and my fiancee and I tried it out to see if we liked it enough to have at our wedding reception. It passed with flying colors! It will fit our tropical theme perfectly and since I'm catering my own wedding reception I appreciate the fact that it's simple to make and cheap! Thank you!!!!
