This is another of those recipes that I found while hunting a recipe to make for which I already had the ingredients on hand. This came from a little free cookbook I received several years ago called Capital Cookbooks.

My oldest son Jason helped me make these and we shared them with all the kids in our neighborhood along with some kool-aid. Everyone enjoyed them and believe me...they didn't last long. They came out DELICOUS! I was also happy about the amount this recipe made. I was able to make 7 dozen!! So we had an extra few dozen to wrap up and put away. Thanks for the GREAT you said, it's ingredients we usually have in our pantry and I'll definitally be making them again. Kerry
