Recipe by OceanLuvinGranny
I found this recipe in one of those little recipe books sold by the checkstand at some markets. As our family doesn't like nuts on cheesecake, I took them off and used chocolate chips instead. But other than that, its the same recipe. They are very good and nice to take to picnics or get togethrs. The kids love them too.
