This is a fun, easy and delicious recipe that my kids started helping me make when they were toddlers. They have been a 'must have' at family dinners, especially during the Holidays. We've taken them to School, Scout, and Work potlucks. Always sure to be a Hit. Now that my kids (20, 16, 14 and 14) are no longer toddlers, they fight over who gets to make them each year.
