    Oh my goodness! I just made these and they are sooooo good! Thanks for the recipe!

    I found this on Pinterest, just made them for my carry in at work. My coworkers are gonna love these! If I can keep myself from eating them all beforehand 🙂 I have to bring the icing I ran out of time to ice them n let the icing dry before transporting them. I added just a drop of vanilla to give it more of the ‘cream’ flavor, and it tastes even more like a root beer float. I bought a prepacked cookie mix from betty crocker that was root beer float, but it had the white chips in it. maybe next time i’ll add those too, but these already taste soooooooo much better than those did.

      Thanks for your comments and tips! I’m so glad you liked them! I’ll have to try them with white chocolate chips that sounds yummy!
