My son, Jon, the Krispy Kreme King, gave me the recipe you all have been asking for.
I let my kids in the kitchen a lot. They make a lot of messes. Today I got slightly cranky, ok, really cranky, cleaning the stove and the fridge. It took hours to clean inside, outside and underside. YUCKY!
But, they make a lot of good stuff.
Notice, nobody is asking for MY recipes?
That's common around here.
I don't mind.
