Very easy to make, my12 yr old makes them every year and they are wonderful.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 15, 2011

Delicious! These were a bit messy to make, so they spent some extra time in the freezer. I dipped half the batch in melted white chocolate. Turned out great!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 11, 2011

I followed the recipe exactly as written. I could not form mixture in to balls. Very difficult to work with.
