      Yes they are Stacie...good to see you on here again and not always writing for the contest...So proud of you for winning my dear..I knew you could do it  :o)  Try these they are easy and very rewarding to make. 

      Mr.Marmalade they aren't really that fattening....You can use lowfat pudding..and no sugar on top or chocolate..they are still really good.

      Also make them smaller and stuff with crabmeat, or egg salad or whatever suits your fancy. they make great snacks..cuz I can't think of how to spell horsedevors?

      anyway HAPPY EASTER  love G-Ma :o) hugs....and thank You both for your comment
