    Darlene Summers's Note:

    This is a recipe I have eaten in a wonderful Mexican restaurant (La Fiesta) in Carbondale, Illinois. I have not made this my own self yet, mainly because I forget about it till I am at La Fiesta. Then of course I order it there and have no need to make it. (It is so good). The recipe came from a Mexican Cookbook I have by Better Homes & Gardens. Hope you get as much enjoyment from eating it as I do at La Fiesta.

      We had Dinner Club last night with a Southwest theme and these were a hit for dessert! I followed the recipe exactly, used Frosted Flakes as the cereal and actually added just a tad bit more cinnamon. Impressive, fun and delicious! Everyone raved.
