MMmmm. Made something similar to this years ago. Forgot how good they are. I wanted to color some of them pink, but couldn't find my food coloring. I did add a touch more peppermint flavoring, as we like it a little stronger. But followed the rest of the directions as written. Thnx for sharing your recipe, Boo Chef. Made for PAC Fall 2009.
