I found the original recipe in some recipes that my mother had saved and just had to give it a try. It is quick, easy and is a fun dessert/snack that tastes good, too. (I plan on trying them with other fruits, such as blueberries, pears and peaches.)

Note: You can do these in the microwave. Wrap in a paper towel and microwave on high for 5 minutes.
