Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

Are you ever just looking for easy an meal to make for your kids that they’ll eat?  One that they will love that doesn’t include chicken nuggets and french fries?  My kids fluctuate between being picky eaters and driving me crazy.  And do they ever like the same foods at the same time?  Nope.  That would just be too easy.

Then I found this recipe.  Hello Pizza Puffs!  They were easy to make (super easy) and my kids loved them.  Like, LOVED them.  Yeah!  Double bonus which just makes this Mom very, very happy.
