These seriously were so yummy! Brit was nice of enough to share 3 with me- so I could also share them with my family- but I was too selfish and ate all of them by myself... that is how wonderful they are. In fact my mouth is watering just thinking about them!!

I'm going to the store right now to buy the ingredients to make these. I always take credit (yes, I'm rude) for these when I give them to people. They think I'm Martha afterwards...(little do they know!)
