OH... MY... GOODNESS, Dancer...these are very habit-forming, made these yummy little guys last night, as I have been testing different recipes for my house party coming up shortly, well, I got just about 2-1/2 doz. out of the mixture,as soon as I put them out the next day, they were gone-in-a-flash... yup, a great success. Made them just like the recipe stated, used the red and green, I wonder if they would be good with tiny chocolate chips added to the batter?... what a wonderful-looking holiday treat, easy and no bake, not to mention delicious! Thanks Dancer, for a super treat..I will be making these again shortly for my house party, only I will probably triple the recipe. Thanx :-)

I only came out with about a dozen of these and they were a little too rich for me.
