These are really yummy. You won’t regret making them.
This was a recipe given to me by my coworker, Jodi. She always has these in her lunch. One day, she let me try a little.
I died of happiness with one bite. Then I grabbed the rest out of her hand and gobbled it down.
I didn’t really do that. But, she did give me the recipe so I could make my own.
When I made them at home, we liked them so much that they were gone in 2 days. Although, I must add the disclaimer that I only had 2 or 3. The rest were mowwed down by others, which is a good thing because I would have kept eating them. They are so addicting.
