I’m so in love with these childhood favorites. Not only are they incredibly tasty, but a major plus is how fast you can whip them up too – just a few minutes on the stovetop, then plop them down on some wax paper and let them harden (or don’t). As an added plus, there’s only 5 ingredients. Easy, delicious recipes like this one are my favorite!!
