Recipe by Mom of 3 hungry boys
I bought a cookbook for my son - BH&G Anyone can cook - since he is going to culinary school and we are his guinea pigs -lol. He made these for me before and OMG they were the best - so for Mother's Day he made them again for me by Special Request. Gotta luv that boy. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do - I'm not a marshmallow fan so we generally leave those out.
