      I made this recipe at Easter (same not remember where I got it..on the web somewhere) and shaped them into small egg shapes. VERY sweet but good (I made regular and the chocolate variety, and I have to say the chocolate was better...took away that "too sweet" flavor.) I did not dip them in sugar...I chilled them and then dipped in melted semisweet chocolate with paraffin wax. They were a big hit with my family, but just a tad bit too sweet for me (though still good...I think sometimes when you make something, by the time you get around to having it, you're sick of looking at and smelling it :). I made about 4 times this amount and messed around with extracts, too. I tried almond, cherry, lemon and rum. I actually wrapped the cherry candy around a maraschino cherry and then shaped that was yummy! This recipe is very versatile and can be adapted for any holiday.

      These are great! We made this when I was a little girl for bridal showers and baby showers. They were so much fun for me to help as a little girl and oh so good to eat. I had totally forgotten about this recipe. Thanks
