Happy summer, folks!!

And…this is a recipe from my friend who doesn’t love cooking.

They are so easy. I made these for Easter brunch, so I used pastel sprinkles. I found the dot sprinkles at Michael’s Craft store. I also grabbed some sucker sticks at Michaels, and some pink and white candy disks that melt.
