Reviews for Batty Bats
"Also had a problem with the cookies breaking very easily..."
"These turned out SO CUTE. I had to go buy another package of cookies, they kept breaking and were very difficult to deal with. I tinted some of my frosting brownfor the eyes and mouth. I used a white cake mix and tinted it red, so it would be like blood."
"it was sooo tasty! my whole family loved it! And my friends had seconds! haha. I would definately make this recipe again."
