  1. The children will love this! This will be good for a summer pool party for kids. I will try to make some of this during my stepdaughter’s play date. Though I’m honestly not a good cookie baker, sometimes I make to too tough to eat 😂 Thanks for sharing. I will save this recipe!

    1. I am not too great at cooking either…. It’s the process not the end product! Having dun is where it is at!

  2. These are so cute. I have recently got into baking and these little beauties, look like something that I will be giving a go this weekend, with my daughter.
