  1. I am so trying this recipe!! Thanks!

  2. They are really good!! I have never dipped them in chocolate, and they rarely make it to the rolled ball stage. I never even follow the directions either. lol I just add a whole thing of P-butter, and a little more of all the ingredients. lol You really cannot mess this up. And then I just throw it in some tupperware, and in the fridge. And I snack on it here and there. I know it sounds sinful....but it is sooooo yummy!!! In fact I might need to make it right now! lol

  3. I think I might have to try that recipe! And wow, you pick up the house a little every day? Good for you...can you come to my house? :)

    Great to see you on the Friday Fill-In!

  4. So I caved and made them at about 2a.m. lol They are sure yummy!!

    Also I didn't say my house was I just try to do something everyday so it doesn't get to far away from me. ha ha ha ;0)
