These are easy, tasty little buggers, sure to please both kids and adults alike. You can also use diced, mixed candied fruits instead of the raisins. I always use walnuts for the chopped nuts. YUM!!!

These are really good, and very easy to make. They smell great when baking, and taste even better. I didn't add any nuts, so the kids would eat them too. They also loved them! Thanks!
