    -Mary-'s Note:

    The recipe was posted in Southern Living. We live in Missouri now and can no longer get to Cafe DuMonde very often, so these were an acceptable alternative.

      My granddaughter made these and they were wonderful. Not exactly the same but close enough to Cafe DuMond. Unfortunately the ambiance was not even close! We had snow instead of street musicians.
      We will be making these again.
