      That sounds like a possible addition to the cookie baskets that I am trying to make. Just wondering, do you think that the crust could be made with vanilla wafers or graham crackers? I have a FIL who can’t have chocolate.

      vanilla wafers should be okay or use the vanilla-creme sandwich cookies if FIL can’t have chocolate. I’ve never used vanilla wafers for this but I’ve used all flavors of the sandwich cookies — even peanut butter, which is my favorite! these I definitely keep to myself! LOL!
