These are great! My kids (and my husband and I) really enjoyed them. They would also be a good treat for a bake sale.

Okay, I was about to post these as one of my recipes (got from Quick Cooking magazine) but decided to do a quick search to see if they were already listed and HERE THEY ARE!!! These are soooooooooo good, you should be making these right now. I brought these to the law firm where I work and one of the attorneys actually told me, absolute deadpan -- "This is the best thing I've ever eaten in my entire life" -- for real! Yummy Yummy Yummy! Try these!
