“You will not believe how good these are! If you tell no one what they are, they will completely be devoured while the whole time you hear "What is in these? Cinnamon? Chocolate? Molasses?" Then you tell them exactly what they are and you are guaranteed "Oh my gosh, you're right! That's it! It's root beer!" Then what always comes next is "I need this recipe!!!" So, because I'm sick of handing out the recipe, here it is for everyone. *Root Beer Extract/Concentrate is often hard to find, but you can order it online from Zatarains if you can't find it by all the other extracts in your grocery store.”
