      I tripled this recipe since I wanted enough logs to add to 6 holiday gift bags I'm assembling, & these should make a very nice addition to all that's going into each bag, at least that's what my own little taste test told me! Assembling all these great ingredients was easy & enjoyable! Thanks for a very tasty keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Every Day Is a Holiday]
