I am a teacher and several years ago I got a package of these as a holiday gift from a student. These are super easy to make and any time I take them somewhere everyone BEGS for the recipe! I make a giant batch at the holidays and put them in cute bags or boxes as gifts. I keep the supplies on hand so I can whip them up to take whenever I need to bring an appetizer to a party! Guaranteed to become a favorite!

We make these all the time. My family loves them. My parents came to visit and I had to give my mom the recipe and now she makes them all the time too. These are so good and better yet, so easy. My 11 year old makes them for us most of the time.
