These were a big hit at dinner last evening. Easy to make plus tasty & sweet. I think next time i may try a little more ginger. Thank you Ellie for sharing your recipe.

These were gobbled up!! My daughter wanted to lick her plate. LOL! I used brown sugar instead of white and baby carrots cut in half. Thank you!
