      I got the recipe from the Sunday paper too. I made one batch and mailed to family. Also, I didn't frost them. Everyone loved them. My daughter even wants the recipe because they taste so good. Next time I make these I would like to try different flavors, lemon etc.(husband didn't like candy chips) They definitely go quickly and are quite popular. Well worth the time. :)
