Any recipe with that much sugar and butter has got to be delicious! Not to mention chocolate

Candy, thank you for the recipe. I don't know how I missed this post. For those of you who have never tried these you better get hopping and make a batch. I tried one at the Bash and found them to be very compatible to my sweet tooth. I have to admit I did try a little more than one but who's counting. If any of you guys tell my doctor I will never speak to you again!
Carl, You need to run to the kitchen right now and whip up a couple batches of these. If you need help eating them I will sacrifice myself and assist you with disposing of them at Cubfest.
