These little gems are chewy, tasty and surprisingly sweet.  A JAP Freind introduced in to this special treat. I found my self in the kitchen at 4 am this morning.  That's a whole different story.  Well, I couldn't wait to try this recipe. To my surprise these are very good moist and sweet.  It's just enough sweetness to satisfy a craving. NO SUGAR ADDED !

It take 2 min. To put this recipe together. I just love recipes you can dump and stir.
