These are easy and delicious! After attending a Pampered Chef party several years ago, I use to make them all of the time for parties, picnics and more. No matter what engagement I brought them to, they were always a huge hit. After my family moved, I lost the recipe and for a while, couldn't find it on the internet anywhere. Now I have a safe place to keep it. Thanks so much!
