“This recipe is another one of Nestle's recipes that happens to be "desert safe". Since my husband is in Iraq I have been looking for some goodies that will be safe for me to send him. This recipe has been tested in Nestle's kitchen and does meet Middle East guidlines, as well as U.S. Postal Service mailing regulations.”
