Weird in butter like that. BUT HEY!! What totally addicting results! I need to stop eating these before ....umm...before they're all gone! Very easy with totally satisfying results. Still a weird cooking method, tho. Made for ZWT9, Mike & the Appliance Killers.

Oh my...these are soooooooooo good and totally addicting. I used Splenda granulated sugar and added a couple tablespoons of Splenda brown sugar and a teaspoon of cinnamon. It took a little longer whipping it to stiff peaks, but they turned out perfectly. Once you pop one into your mouth you can't stop eating them. I will be making these often in the future.
