      These were great! They were a hit at our halloween party...all the kids and adults were creeped out yet still all had to try them. The only change I made was to use crunched up pretzel sticks in place of the butterfinger.

      Everyone LOVED these little bon-bon like treats. They even managed to survive in the mail arriving just as yummy as when I placed them in the containers for shipping.
