A tried and true recipe. It isn't just a Maine recipe. They have been a long time recipe here in Pennsylvania since I was a kid. These are sold at local markets and especially by the Amish. Mmm..good.

Just wasn't my favorite - not chocolate-y enough for me. Sorry, I just thought they were average.
