Make ahead and perfect for those tailgating, camping, picnic, and potluck. They whip up in a pinch and make plenty. I made the mistake of making a double batch and had so many I could not eat another with out my tummy going snap, crackle, pop. I posted the recipe on my social media page and pic of a container full of goodies "Free to good home" I got calls and messages. Didn't take long before they were gone and the recipe is shared with all my neighbors who are excited about trying this over the summer. It was a hit! Enjoy.
