Ricardo Cerezo, of Illinois, got an extremely sweet surprise after looking in his cookie jar recently, according to ABC News.

The site reports Cerezo had accumulated 11 Lotto tickets that he saved in the cookie jar for a rainy day. But at his wife's suggestion, he eventually took them to be checked for possible winnings, which proved to be excellent advice.



"I can't believe I had $4.85 million in a cookie jar for over three months," Cerezo said.
