Tropical Drop Candies Recipe


Tropical Drop Candies

There are times you just don’t feel like putting on the oven.  Whenever I get that way, I look for recipes that have ingredients that would give flavor to whatever I’m going to make.  Back in 1990 I found Tropical Drop Candies, that have chocolate in them, but also have “CRUNCH”, and you don’t have to put the oven on.
