These turned out great, however, I burned the first batch by trying to melt the chips for 6 minutes (stirring every two minutes). The chips were already burning at the end of the first two minutes. The second batch I tried turned out perfect, I heated the chips in the microwave for a total of 1 minute, 45 seconds, stirring after the first minute, then again after 30 seconds. They were the right consistency to mix with the rest of the ingredients. They were tasty, the kids loved them! Thanks Kree, good recipe!
