"These are terrific! My girls loved them on Christmas morning, and they are probably the only reason I was able to get them to sit down to eat, albeit briefly, in the midst of all the chaos. These will be a new family tradition for us, and year one was a big hit."

"I first made these for Christmas breakfast in 2011. Doing it again this year! We are all adults now but---as they say---just because you have to grow older does not mean you have to grow up! At least, not at Christmas!"
