A friend shared this recipe with me a few days ago. If someone has already posted one like it please excuse. I am adding these to my Christmas basket for my grandkids. I got the gift bags (clear see through) and will fill it with these turtles and tie with a Christmas ribbon. When I saw them I thought of my oldest grandson who is now 21 and the days he LOVED that little nija turtle movies..LOL That movie entertained him for hours! I will try to get a picture taken when I can.
