This was relaly good...and really easy! I didn't have any unmelted candies to contend with. I was so proud of it, I took it to work with some fresh baked bread and it was a huge hit! Eveyrone loved the unique cinnamon flavor. Great recipe!

Really easy to make. I had no candies left over and little foam. Wonderful color and taste. Can't wait to share with friends and family
