    I have very successfully made these in the past. However, now I need to find a good substitute for the nuts, that will still provide a similar texture. Tried Rice Crispies with some success but not that great. Would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!

    These were much better frozen but over all I do not think they were very good. All you can taste is the alcohol so I might as well just drink it. They were mushy and the dough was awful to work with. Sorry. Guess this recipe was just not "the one" for me.

    Yummy, easy and fun! No issues with mushiness, I suppose you have to eye ball it when adding the liquid. Leaving the balls to sit in room temperature for a while (1 hr or so) will dry the surface to a thin crust. We love them!

    I used Creme De Menthe Syrup (from the ice cream toppings section) since kids were going to be consuming. I also tried baking them which was a disaster! I baked before I rolled in powdered sugar and they just flattened. Still, they were better baked with a bit of crunch. I then dipped them in chocolate as they weren't very pretty but tasted great! Thanks.

    I made these for a St. Patty's Day party...My DH complained that they were too "Mushy" in the middle, so I baked them at 350 for 10 minutes. We got rave reviews from everyone! They were crunchy on the outside and chewy inside.
