Do yourself a favor and double the recipe. As long as you're going to make them, it doesn't really add much more time and expense, and these were a big hit! I couldn't find Rolos, but I did find...

These have got to be the simplest treat ever to make and yet are SO VERY ADDICTIVE! Make sure that you make at least two batches... one to enjoy right away and another so that you'll have more ...

These were a bit too rich for me, but judging by how fast they vanished from the party I brought them to, everyone else must have disagreed with me. These got RAVE REVIEWS! I did take the advice...

One of my students brought these to a potluck. They are wonderful! I made them 3 times between Christmas and New Years and everyone loved them. They are very quick to make. Just allow time f...

I make about 15-20 different Xmas cookies every year. This year, these cookies were the hit of them all. I used one bag of rollo candies and could have made another bag's worth easily. Everyb...
