RECIPE BACKSTORY
OK, before I became a working mother I would never, ever have considered using a box mix for anything. But, I was in a pinch one day and had to make snack for my son's soccer team so I had to get creative on the fly with very little time to spare. These are surprisingly good, in fact, you may even forget you used a mix.
