I have 4 picky eaters that turn their noses up at anything they can't immediately identify visually - and 2 batches of this recipe vanished before the baking pans were completely cool! Thank you!!

This is a great recipe to use for wrapped sweet potato fries and to wrap hot dogs too- great for the grill. Thanks for sharing. Hugs, Pat
