Seems everyone loves these little guys, so we’re reposting!!! These adorable “cookie-candy-treats” are tasty and oh-so-cute. They are delightful for spring, Easter, or as a pick-me-up when you need something sweet. The words “chow mein” mean ‘stir-fried noodles’, also translating to “fried noodle” in English, chow meaning ‘stir-fried’ (or “sautéed”) and mein meaning ‘noodles’. Enjoy making these FUN and festively spring treats!
