My daughter found this recipe on Pinterest last week and within a few minutes it had been pinned almost 80 times. I figured there must be something to it so I pinned it to look at later. When I finally went through the recipe, it looked delicious and I knew it would be something my family would love. I made some modifications to the recipe to better suit our tastes and it was declared a success by the family! I love it when a plan comes together!!
Here's the link to the original recipe.
