This recipe is one that I lost and then my wife found again. I originally got this recipe off a friend in University. I must of made it for my wife once before we got married. After we got married and move in together I couldn’t find the recipe. Years later she brought me this recipe that she got from a co-worker. I’m not sure it is exactly the same and the name is different but overall it is close enough. So if any of you know these by another name please leave a comment. I would love to remember the name I originally knew them by.
This recipe also resulted in one of my SAHD jokes. One morning I found this recipe carefully placed on the kitchen counter. I asked my wife if this was a subtle hint. Her response was that there was nothing subtle about it.
You know you are a SAHD when you find a recipe card on the counter left by your wife as a hint to what she wants.
These are fun to make and look really cool when they go from white balls to all crinkled.
