  1. These look SO good! I will be trying them with my kids and soon. 🙂 Thanks so much for linking up with “Try a New Recipe Tuesday.” Have a very Merry Christmas, friend!

  2. Can I substitute butter for the margarine?

      Maureen, I’ve never used butter, but I think it would work just fine. If you try making this recipe with butter, I’d love to hear how it turns out!
