    • Hi there Catherine, Thank you so much for pinning, and I hope its sooner rather than later that you do get time to make it. Super easy and delicious as well. Hope you will enjoy it

  1. Humm. This sounds interesting, I never would have thought about this type of nobake.
    I appreciate you sharing this recipe with Sweet Tea & Friends this month.

    • Love a no bake as its so easy for our then 11 year grand daughter to do. We typically do a lot of baking for Christmas time and then try to add some no bake for her to participate as well. This one we all loved as it tasted truly yummy

    • Hi Sammie. I totally agree, they are super delicious and yummy, and easy to make. Our 11-year-old granddaughter made these, with a bit of help from grandma and mommy.

    • Hi there Mariama. They are truly super and delicious. I could not stop eating them. Hope you will enjoy them as well.
