No Bake Cookies...

Nothing cures sick kids faster than chocolate!  My mom used to make these fast and easy treats for my brother and me when we were kids.  She made them with her mom and I'm sure this recipe goes back all the way to the Mayans and Aztecs who used the cacao seeds as offerings to the gods!  O.k. maybe not that far back, but I'm sure it goes back at least a few generations.

A little lovin' from Grandma's dog doesn't hurt either!
