As a Nestle employee, I'd encourage non-Americans to use Smarties.:-) We also make red and green ones for the holiday season. (American 'Smarties' are a completely different creature... pressed sugar candy. Don't use them!)

As a Nestle Canada employee I used Christmas Smarties !! Very quick and easy recipe. The kids liked them, but they sugested adding some chocolate chips to the recipe. I might just do that next time!
