These won't win any taste competitions, but it didn't matter. The kids thought they were delicious and had a great time. We made a batch and brought them with us visiting - it gave the kids something to do. We slapped on some icing and they got to choose from the myriad of sprinkles available. A huge huge huge HIT!
