A favorite snack among my brothers and sisters when we were growing up. There was rarely a night that went by when Mom didn't have some kind of homemade 'snack' for us to eat around 7 PM, as we were all hungry around that time--Probably because we always had supper between 3:30-4:30 when Dad got home from work.
