    I know! Seriously, WHERE does the time go?

    I’ve made a few different variations of these and they are always a hit! The nice thing about them is that you can make them ahead of time and they do taste great at room temperature.

    Enjoy!

  2. These look great for all the things that will be coming up in the next 3 months. I saw that it was September 25 and all I could think about today is 3 months until Christmas.
