I used some larger meringue cookies for this version. And then, when we ran out of the large cookies we used the bitty ones that come in bags. And we layered the bitty ones in mason jars. Those were also amazing!! An absolute success!
We served these to my sister-in-law and her family (a bunch of boys) and the only sound you heard was forks scraping dishes. They were devoured! Winner!
