Jeff's Girl Way Out West's Note:
These make the most **adorable** little treats! I make these for my children to take to preschool and the little ones just go crazy over them! And the flavor is tops, too! (My husband loves these.) The honeybees are precious at baby showers and for first birthdays for boys!!! Oh, and did I mention how CUTE these are?!
