Easy to make and interesting, but I really couldn't distinguish the flavors well. I was in a minority, however, because 3 of my friends loved them and asked for the recipe. I also didn't read the recipe all the way through (oops!) and didn't see they needed to be either warm or cold. I made them for a bake sale, and room temp was not the way to go. I served them cold to my friends.
