My sister Jody and I have made these for years. They are quick, inexpensive, stretch the budget, and make a wonderful gift. Before the chocolate sets up you can top with holiday themed or colored sprinkles for a real festive touch.

    This looks absolutely delicious-I have to try it! I’m thinking about adding granola to the mix as well 🙂

    These are one of my biggest weaknesses! Thanks for showing me how to make them. I may just make up a batch for my out of town family to enjoy! I’m sure some will break in the process and I’ll just have to eat them.
