My friend Val gave me this recipe. She got my kids hooked on them, so she had to! Sometimes I make them without the chocolate topping and they're still delicious.

I've been making these for years. I found this recipe when I discovered that marshmallows aren't vegetarian! I'm no longer vegetarian, but still love this recipe.

I liked these, as did my guests. For those of you who have a cement block instead of a treat, make sure that you dont put these in the fridge to cool! they can just set on the counter or something, but in the fridge they turn into little rocks! i really like the fact that you dont need marshmellows for this, because even tho it is a little more work, i can make them even if there are no marshmellows in the pantry

My Aunt Linda made these for us when we were kids. Now, I make them for my kids. We absolutely love them. I'm always asked to bring these to small get togethers. They never last long!
