"These are super cute and super easy! My shapes didn't turn out like the picture, but they were still ghostly. This will be an annual Halloween treat."

"These have a great taste to them. It's kind of like making angel food cake. I didn't use the orange food coloring. The hardest part was putting the eyes on. Great recipe, thanks!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 22, 2012

"I first made these about 15 years ago, as a Halloween treat for a neighbor's kids, who weren't allowed real trick-or-treat candy. And I've made it every year since! People expect them, and the reviews are always great!"
