This recipe is as old as the hills, but still popular. I remember my deep regret when my school would serve them and I didn't have money to buy :(. Of course, it never occurred to me to ask my mom to make them, in spite of the fact that she was a fabulous cook. Anyway, I dusted it off the other day when I had a chocolate craving. I got my version from my mother-in-law.
