Hi Miss Ali, I left you two questions on your "comments" section on the blisfully domestic forum...when you get a minute can you see if you can answer them.

Oh, you are the best. My kids were just wanting me to make this stuff, but I couldn't find my recipe. Thanks.

That is a great recipe that I'd forgotten about!
Thanks for the reminder!!

Some family friends used to get dog food bags, empty them and carefully wrap the insides with saran wrap and butcher paper and give this treat out in the dog bags. So cute!!

OH STOP - these are the absolute death of me. My brother and I got into a yelling match this year over them...he took them all and locked himself in his room.

this is true PMS food - I could live off of these :)
