"I found this yummy recipe on the Art + Food + Life blog. My husband said he didn't have high hopes because they didn't look very appetizing, but he changed his mind in a hurry when he tasted them. Very yummy and very easy to get bubbling away on the back of the stove while you are getting the main course ready."
