MONSTER HANDS

These started as an inexpensive treat for my 1st daughters pre-k class 15 yrs. ago. And both of their classes thru elementary school. They've become a tradition that has lasted the test of time. Now I make them for bake sales & My girls. And they make them for their friends and one day hopefully ,,, their children.
