Where it all began

Once long ago in a foreign land called Utah my mom found the following recipe in a magazine. We loved it. But as years went by, we moved several times and the recipe was lost. It wasn’t until we moved to California and to our delight she found the recipe again. It has been a family favorite. I have taught my boys to make it and some of them in turn have made it for their families. It is so delicious!!!

Warning: if you are allergic to peanut butter, you definitely don’t want to try this one!
