I also followed the recipe exactly, and got a crumbly mixture. Didn't work out for me.

Have had these in my cookbook for quite a while and thought they would be fun to make on a rainy afternoon (today) with my kids. Followed recipe exactly and end result was a crumby mixture that could not possibly be rolled into balls. Had to throw out mixture. Sorry for low rating but such a waste of ingredients.
