  1. Um, I'm a little sad that I didn't get to try one. And I can't wait to see the haircut!

  2. I'm going to try making these today. If they turn out, I hope you don't mind me sharing the recipe on my blog. ? Mostly just my friends and family read it. :) They sound so yummy. I'm going to try dipping them in chocolate, too.

  3. I hope you like them Sarah - we loved them!
