I haven't tried this yet, it's in response to a request. It looks really easy and fun. I had put it aside to make with the kids, and at least now I won't lose the recipe, lol. It's from Quick Cooking. They say 5-6 cups of sugar--I'm guessing you start with 5, and add more if it doesn't seem very easy to handle. I imagine you could also make this into different shapes for different occasions, maybe even dipping them in white chocolate...BE SURE to use COOK AND SERVE pudding, NOT instant, or these will not work--and use butter, not margarine.
