Quick and easy, but lacking flavor a bit. I find it helps to add some honey or maple syrup to supplement the taste or even a minute amount of cloves. Not bad. Cheers.

Super fast to make and tasted soo good! My 5yr DS loved them since they were ones "with juice" so that is an added bonus! Made as written and will be making these again!! Made for I Recommend Tag.

My husband loves these. They are super easy. I thought they were a bit too sweet for me. I would be tempted to add a little spice in to give it some heat.
