11 Adult Versions Of Your Favorite Childhood Treats

RE: BUZZFEED APPLICATION - With these recipes, every day is a #throwback.

Posted on

I don't know about you, but I miss my childhood. It was a simpler time - when the most stressful thing was to wake up early enough to catch the Saturday morning cartoon lineup. The sky was the limit and there was no such thing as "counting calories". Although some of these foods no longer exist, thank goodness there's adult versions that keep the child in us alive.
