    Marg (CaymanDesigns)'s Note:

    I've been making these for years as they are easy to whip but have and excellent flavor. What colors you make them and how you decorate them depends on the occasion. Originally from a Philadelphia Cream Cheese booklet.

      There is something wrong with this recipe. First of all powdered sugar does not stick to the bottom of the glass. Second, it comes out like frosting and it cannot be rolled up into a ball. I am chilling mine before flattening because no matter what I use to flatten the mixture, the mixture sticks to the bottom of the glass, spoon, waxed paper, whatever. Complete disaster.

      My family and friends devoured these. They were easy and yummy. My only issue is that they had to remain refrigerated, if they were room temp, you couldn't pick them up, they were gooey. Any suggestions? I am making them for a cookie exchange this weekend.

      These are awesome, they taste great, everyone I know loved them. I made some that are white with chocolate on them, these are a little more elegant and fancy...and then I made some that are very bright colours, like something out of the grinch :)
