    This recipe pruduces a very sweet treat. I made three of them and opted not to add the green food cloring. I also omitted the powdered sugar only because I didn't have any. My guess is that the sugar would have made them less sticky, but for sweetness, they really don't need the extra sugar. Made for the June 2013 VIP Veg 'n Swap tag.
