Review This Recipe
My son-in-law served 2005 in Iraq. I sent him a care package once a month, always with Nestle Choc chip cookies or bars. Now he is back there again, and wants to know how soon I can send his first of many care packages, of course with homemade goodies. Thank you so much for doing the research to make it easier to send goodies to our military. They deserve any "perks" we can send them. God Bless America and all our military.
