      There wasn't very much flavor, and it was so chewy it was like having your jaw wired. I will continue looking for another recipe.

      Just finished making these. What a yummy treat for the start of fall. This is a tradition I'm hoping to start with my 2 year old. I used to be green with envy of the kids that got these during the Halloween season! I also substituted white corn syrup for the dark. They turned out beautifully!

      Wonderful yummy recipe! I made them for my son's preschool treat. Very easy to make. Tip: put your hands inside sandwich bags like gloves when forming the balls, that way it won't stick to your hands especially if it's still too hot!
