These are OK but nothing great. They do have a light mint flavor which is not overpowering.

Oh, Heavenly Day! These were SOOOO awesome! I could not believe how easy and how beautiful these turned out. These are going on the Christmas trays for SURE! I halved the recipe, but now I wish I'd made double! I'm not sharing these either. Thanks for posting, Hon!

I tripled the recipe to make 12 dozen Snow Balls for my Christmas Bake Exchange. I iced them with green frosting and dipped the tops in coconut. These are a great addition to any baking tray, Thanks!
