I had to make a batch of some kind of dessert for the bake sale at the Elementary Schools Fall Festival and was planning on making an elaborate brownie/blondie bar.... then I saw this recipe!!! I could not find the plain doughnut holes so I had to use glazed ones, but they were so cute!!! Everyone loved them and asked me where on earth I came up with such a brilliant idea!! Thanks Pamela for helping make me look good :) I will be making these next year as well!
