Hey! these are yum! I convinced my dear mother to make them for us since I was busy right then. I noticed the suggestion to use 1 1/2 c. sugar, which was about perfect for our taste, and she added 3 drops green food coloring for a pretty effect. They tasted so scarfy I'm giving them 5 stars, even though Mom was a bit disappointed that they were a bit hard to lift out of the pan?? I'd have no clue why.
