Recipe of the Week

I found this recipe on the side of my Fiber One cereal box, and my son convinced me to give it a try. At 210 calories a pop, they aren't my first choice for a snack, but they're better than the ding-dongs and ho-ho's I used to scarf down without blinking an eye!

We bake up a batch at a time, then put them in individual freezer bags and pop them in the freezer. Then when I'm ready to indulge in a snack, I take one out, pop in the microwave for 30 mins, and voila! Pure indulgence!
