i make these for every hoiday there a hit. i use oil instead of shorting it is fine

I have been making these for years and everyone loves them! I use to make a recipe that used powdered sugar and graham cracker crumbs, however, these are just as good and so easy to make!

Thank you for sharing this lovely treat! It is such an easy recipe and it is an instant crowd pleaser.

I just love the taste of these and how easy they are to prepare, even my five year old makes them in huge muffin pans by herself. thanks for the recipe!!!

outstanding best stuff on earth

I used almont butter in 1/2 my cups. Unique and edible for those with peanut butter sensitivity. Great consistancy no matter what the center is.
