    " It was excellent "
    thepiggs ate it and said...
    I made these as a teenager (back in the very olden days) and they were always good. I made them so many times that I didn't need a recipe. Our kids made them also and it's something easy for younger kids to make themselves or help with.
    I think I even had a version that used peanut butter. That would be a good one to find a post.
    Thanks for bringing back the memories.

    I posted this recipe three months ago and
    Catwoman yesterday showed her claws and jumped up and down and said that she had seen this recipe 100 times on this site. Not true. Like you said, it's an oldie, but goodie. If somebody hasn't tried this, they should.
