  • Lindsey [] :

    I made them! My husband loved them. I was worried he wouldn’t, he’s not a real dessert kind of guy and is very much a sushi kind of guy. But he loved them! He only ate two, but I’m taking the rest to my students as a April Fool’s Day continuation. Check out my blog for pics: http://piggyinthepuddle.blogspot.com/2009/04/happy-april-fools-day.html
    Thanks for the great idea!
