Leave Santa Some Home-Baked Crinkles that Taste Like Our Beloved Hungry Pac

December 4, 2018

Hungry Pac, in our view, is best loved for their bite-sized, melt-in-your-mouth soft crinkles that you gobble up like they’re chips. They’re great to eat all year round, but there’s something about the holiday season that brings on the hankering for milk and cookies.

Yeah, we made ours are bigger. But they’re still bite-sized, by our standards.

So if you’re stuck at home and feeling craftsy, why not give our best attempt at the famous crinkle a whirl? The worst that can happen is a not-so-great crinkle, which is still pretty good in our book, especially when dunked in a glass of whole milk.
