I came across this recipe years and years ago (at least 10) in a Taste of Home magazine. It is wonderful, especially when eaten hot with a nice, cold glass of milk. It originally had an espresso spread that went with it but I never got around to making that.
Just as a warning, these are addictive and go fast! Every time I've made them for a bake sale, they've sold like crazy!
Hope you enjoy!
