MY REVIEW

"We love this at Christmastime. So easy to make. We give them in our goodie gifts."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 1, 2011

"Originally, this recipe said to cut into 1-inch pieces, which is how you would get 6-1/2 dozen. Upon reviewing it, we agree that is too small for this kind of recipe. The recipe will be updated to cut into 1-1/2 inch pieces, which will yield 3 dozen.

"how can this possibly make 6 1/2 dozen in a 9-inch square pan? that is 78 pieces! If you could manage to cut them without them crumbling into pieces, they'd be smaller than bite-sized."

"How does this make 78 servings? 1" squares? The photograph does not show 1" squares."

"Very easy to make! It's extremely sweet! I put mine in the freezer so it would mold faster, and it worked!"
