My lovely sister in-law Monica introduced me to these little devils. She asked if she could bring them for the dessert for Thanksgiving and I said of course despite the fact that I wasn’t quite sure what they were. Now that I have experienced their deliciousness, I am beginning to feel like I have been deprived all these years.
