    My granddaughter is type one diabetic, and has Celiac ’s Disease, do you have any clue as to how many carbs are in this recipe and with the serving sizes?

    • The Southern Lady says:

      So sorry, Cindy, we don’t have that info. If you google how to determine carbs in a recipe, you might find some kind of info. on how to enter ingredients and get the amount of carbs. Have a great day.

  2. Susan Powers says:

    Do you have to store this in the fridge because of the cream cheese? I am looking to make something for our neighborhood Easter Egg hunt.

    • The Southern Lady says:

      You can leave them out for a bit, but whatever isn’t eaten I would put in the fridge. I didn’t immediately keep mine in the fridge an they were fine.
