My 3 yr old DS and I made these tonight for dessert and they were a BIG hit! Not only were they easy enough he could help out...but he loved them! I may have sprinkled too much sugar/cinnamon mix on the top, but they taste great! We will make these again! Franklin is one of his favorite shows, and making "SNAIL" was top notch!! ;) Previous photo not posted, will try again once we get a better picture. Yours is terrific!
